Chinese Immersion Program (Xi’an + Chengde)

Chinese Immersion is an LTL specialty and we can promise you a great experience where your Chinese level will increase hugely.

Whether you are taking a gap year just before university or you are on sabbatical from work, this is a incredible chance to try something out of the ordinary.

You will spend your time in two completely different locations but two that boast huge history, heritage and stacks of Chinese culture, starting with the beautiful city of Xi’an.

Moving on towards Chengde will be a completely new challenge where you will be thrust into an environment without a foreigner in site.

To find out more about what our Chinese Immersion Program entails, including prices, check out our section entirely dedicated to it.


How do I travel between cities in China?

Transport to each of these cities is fairly simple.

All of the cities in mainland China are accessible by train and plane, but Taipei of course you’d need to fly to.

Beijing is a connection hub in the North and has convenient links to Xi’an, Shanghai, Chengde by train, and also Taipei and Beihai by plane.

Should I buy a Survival Kit before I come to China?

LTL’s survival kits are included in all of our multi-city programs so you don’t need to worry about purchasing one.

If you’re arranging a separate program you’d need to add it on to your program before you arrive in China. Take a look at our services page for more information.

I’m not sure about Chengde, it sounds very different?

Chengde will be very different to what you’re used to, especially if you’ve never been to China before.

It will even feel very different to spending time in one of China’s larger cities like Shanghai, Beijing or even smaller cities like Xi’an.

No-one will speak English there, so you really have to use your Chinese to get by. It’s a great opportunity to immerse yourself in a Chinese language environment and will help you to make progress very quickly.

However, we’d definitely recommend you to come visit us at one of our larger school locations like Beijing or Shanghai first – that’s why our multi city programs are designed to take you to Chengde as the last stop. This will give you some time to settle into China first, without jumping straight into the deep end.

Should I learn some Mandarin before i come to China?

This is totally up to you, but it’s not essential. Around 50% of all new LTL students come to China without speaking a word of Mandarin.

If you are a complete beginner and want to take group classes, you’ll need to begin your course on one of our starting dates in whichever city you go to first.

If you want to take individual classes you can begin on any Monday of the year in any city.
