Want to really impress the locals in Taiwan? Then learning the local dialect, Taiwanese Hokkien, is a surefire way to do just that.

We take great pride in teaching some of the other dialects of Chinese, such as Shanghainese, Cantonese and Taiwanese.

There is no better way to connect with the locals than learning the local language.

Is Taiwanese similar to Mandarin?

Not really no.

To Mandarin-speaking Taiwanese younger generation, for example, a fluent Taiwanese Hokkien conversation can sound as unintelligible as Russian.

Why don’t you provide smaller packages?

To make genuine progress with Taiwanese Hokkien, or any language for that matter, you need a proper schedule, and this takes time for us to make, and time for you to complete.

Booking up just 10 hours of classes will turn out to be a waste of time for both parties in many cases.

What book do you use for in-person Hokkien classes?

We use《正港台語入門書》for Taiwanese Hokkien classes. 

We have a clear lesson structure, with 27 lessons based on different topics (discussing the weather, money, buying things, introductions, etc).

Through the textbook and our classes, we will help you attain a conversational level of Taiwanese Hokkien to use on the streets of Taiwan.

Is Taiwanese similar to Cantonese?

Taiwanese Hokkien and Cantonese have little in common.

They should be treated as two separate languages completely, with Taiwanese spoken mainly in Taiwan, and Cantonese in southern parts of China and Hong Kong.

DID YOU KNOW || you can learn Cantonese at LTL as well?
