MANDARIN LESSONS TAIWAN – What’s the Deal?
Your part time Mandarin lesson in Taiwan will be directly tailored to your personal study plan.
Whether you wish to learn traditional or simplified Chinese characters or want to practice more speaking and listening, we will tailor your classes to you.
We pride ourselves on being a first rate Chinese language institute because we listen to exactly what you want.
Therefore, when you arrive in Taipei, you will be ready to study Chinese while we worry about the rest.
With our individual program you will find your Mandarin progresses quicker, even if you only study part time.
From the first lesson, thanks to our pre course assessment, we’ll know exactly where to start and exactly how to achieve your Chinese language goals.
With our promises, we expect to deliver you the highest quality Mandarin language classes. Due to this reason, we do not demand any payment until you have taken three hours of classes. After these three hours, if you are not satisfied with your Mandarin classes, all classes taken up to this point are free.
Your Current Chinese level
The pre course assessment is our way of discovering your Mandarin level before you start your course so we can tailor you a perfect study plan and hit the ground running.
This is not a test, but simply a way for us to figure out where you are currently at with Chinese.
Everyone is different, everyone has different goals, so we take this very seriously. You have targets to hit and we want to help you reach them as quickly as possible.
After chatting with us in the assessment, we will communicate with you, our student advisor and your new Chinese tutor to find the best plan of action.
When you have your first lesson with your teacher, you’ll be able to start progressing with Mandarin straight away.

If, for some reason, you cannot attend your Chinese class with us you have the option to cancel six hours before the start of the lesson.
If you have a lesson at 5pm on a Monday afternoon, you can therefore cancel anytime before 11am on that day.

If you cancel more than 30% of your lessons then you will have to pay for them.

What Our Students Said
I liked the LTL website compared to others, it was clearer and regularly updated. Various features, newsletter. The set up was perfect. I'm working remotely and I have a big room so classes there were no hassle.
My teachers also went to lunch with me, which was my most productive time. I had a good connection with both of them, so it worked. Those are the times I enjoyed the most. They corrected me and helped me.
The teachers would hang out and eat lunch with us, happy to add us online and chat. The community of LTL is really good. I didn't feel lonely or homesick at all. Alex & Annie were very responsive, why I picked LTL!

Valentina with her teacher in Taipei
I choose Taiwan because of visa, it’s convenient for Brits as we get 90 days visa free. My China visa expired in July, didn’t want to through through the hassle of applying.
I stayed in a homestay. It was absolutely fine.
I was also really glad that Fay, my teacher, can speak in English. We could communicate no problem if I had issues which was important to me.
The set up was perfect. I’m working remotely and I have a big room so classes there were no hassle. We share the kitchen and she lives on 2nd floor. I have my own bathroom.
My teacher even took me to the MRT and bought together the card and explained how it worked. Likewise, I wanted to go find a gym and she found it for me. Whenever I had a question, she answered.
My teachers were Catherine and Juju. Nothing to complain about.
They clearly did good handover whenever I had class with one and the other. They had different styles that suit me fine. Juju followed the HSK book much more, while Catherine will go off a tangent and we would talk about philosophy and things I was interested in Chinese.
I love Taipei, it’s so easy to move around. It’s a big city, but doesn’t feel like it. In London you would definitely meet someone who would harass you or is mad. People are all really friendly, and all speak English.
I am thinking next year I will come back. Me and my partner want to come here. I want to continue studying Chinese.
I’d been looking for Mandarin schools over 6 months ago. I was looking for Mandarin programs anywhere but Taipei stood out because it was easier with regards to visas.
I saw a few things online and found LTL. I was particularly excited about something immersive, such as the homestay.
I found Taiwan and Taipei generally overall really pleasant, despite personal challenges adapting. Maybe in a year or two will take a vacation in Mainland or different part of Taiwan.
Before got here, thought I had reasonable familiarity with the language. I was following the HSK script in particular.
I have a long term goal working on traditional characters.
LTL accommodated my requests even though it was a very short notice booking.
Celine and Paige were my teachers. I would start the morning checking that I was learning what I wanted to learn.
My teachers also went to lunch with me, which was my most productive time. I had a good connection with both of them, so it worked. Those are the times I enjoyed the most.
They corrected me and helped me activate my ability to demonstrate.
My teacher was Peinie on Mon/Wed/Fri (HSK) and Eden on Tue/Thu (business).
Niamh with friends and her homestay
Overall it was great, really enjoyed my classes. My Chinese improved so much.
I really liked the 1-on-1 because of pace. You have the freedom to learn topics of interest to me, which was finance Chinese.
I liked that we spent the first 3 sessions diagnosing what would be best for me. What we wanted my time in Taipei to be like.
I really liked Peinie, she is a great teacher. I liked that she allowed me to jump books ahead if it was too easy for me. She really improved my Chinese in other aspects too. Having that freedom and flexibility was good. Eden was good also.
I liked that there was a really good social aspect to LTL. It was really good to have that roster and effort made to make a community.
The teachers would hang out and eat lunch with us, happy to add us online and chat. The social community of LTL was really, really good. Didn’t feel lonely or homesick at all.
With LTL, you get out what you put in. If you put the effort, you have a really great time.
I liked that I had lots of contact with LTL from the beginning. Alex and Annie very responsive, which is why I picked LTL over other schools.
