Chinese Courses in China – The Cities

  • Beijing, Shanghai & Taipei

    Beijing, Shanghai & Taipei

    Beijing – A blend of the metropolitan with the historical. One minute you'll be amid some of the world's tallest skyscrapers, the next roaming Beijing's traditional narrow Hutong alleyways.

    Shanghai – A city that really never sleeps. Shanghai is China's largest city by population, and it really is an international metropolis with endless things to do and people to meet.

    Taipei – Another world to the large cities on China's mainland. Taipei is a metropolis with its fair share of things to do while managing to maintain a laidback island vibe.

  • Chengde, Xi'an & Beihai

    Chengde, Xi'an & Beihai

    Chengde – As 'real China' as China gets, Chengde is a beautiful city several hours Northwest of Beijing. No-one speaks English there so it's a great opportunity to immerse yourself.

    Xi'an – Though pretty big in Western terms, Xi'an feels like another world compared to Beijing and Shanghai. As the cradle of Chinese civilisation it's steeped in history and great snacks.

    Beihai – Some of the best beaches in the whole of China can be found on the South coast in Beihai. A small city in Chinese terms, Beihai is a great place to kick back, relax and mix with locals.

Frequently Asked Questions

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 to my home?

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.
