About Program

If you want to learn Mandarin the fastest way possible whilst also experiencing real China there is no better program to take than our Immersion Program - we can bank on that.

The Chinese Immersion Program is a combination program where you will first settle into China with a course at a school in Beijing or Shanghai and then have an intensive complete immersion experience in Chengde. People in Chengde are famous for speaking the best and most standard Mandarin of all in China.

No foreigners live in Chengde and nobody speaks English. Students are therefore completely immersed into Chinese language.

You will live with a Chinese homestay family and take classes with our certified Mandarin teachers meaning you live a truly immersive lifestyle.

Nowhere does immersion like LTL (Live The Language).

Awesome program and very responsive support team!

I started this program about 3 weeks ago, and I truly enjoy the online sessions and classes. The instructor is supportive and knowledgeable, so I learned quite a lot of slang and got opportunities to correct my pronunciations :) Sometimes I even got 1-on-1 sessions for group class price cause there's no other classmate there 😂

The time slots are quite flexible, but just sometimes might not be able to get teachers that are available during certain hours (I'm in the Asia time zone so not many classes are offered during the daytime on weekdays). The support team is SUPER responsive (I mean, they replied to me in less than 6 hours?!) to solve my technical and website issues. I also really like their Discord channel, just another good way to have extra practice and learn some cultural things every day.

Some suggestions here might be:
1. Some time slot suggestions for people in Asia (e.g. avoid certain hours or you scheduled classes might be canceled)
2. Some slides need to be updated (e.g. missing word/symbol, some conversations are grammatically correct but don't make sense 😅)

So far I really love this program and will continue learning with this platform, thank you LTL!

Great immersive experience

This is my 4th time in China, and the 2nd studying at a language school. I came with a HSK level around 2-3 and I am very surprised to see how much my language skills developed in an immersive environment in just 1 month after me being here. In February I will attempt to pass HSK 4. LTL arranged the accommodation with a Chinese home stay family that is indeed very prepared to receive foreign students. I have just entered the second month in language program, now with 1-on-1 lessons, and I can say, from the 4 teachers I’ve had during this period, that they are very qualified and prepared. The staff is nice and very helpful, specially Jane who always arranges tours and traditional activities for the student to join, like dumpling making, calligraphy lesson, excursions to museums and as for this week a movie night. I made the right choice coming to LTL!

Chinese New Year

My name is Inge and I have been for 6 weeks in Beijing to learn Mandarin at LTL mandarin school. I learned a lot in those 6 weeks because of the good lessons of the teachers. I can talk about clothes, directions, paying and other things. During those 6 weeks I have been celebrating Chinese new year with my hostfamily and her family. I learnt in those time the culture and how a chinese family live. That was a great experience for me. Afther school the school planned nice things to do for the students. Example as going out for dinner, seeing the Great wall or a Temple. That made it nice to learn the other students and very good to learn the language. Overall I have been very happy that I choose LTL mandarin school, they made my time wonderfull.
