LTL stands for Live the Language.

That means we believe learning Chinese doesn’t just belong in the classroom, it should be part of your daily life.

This is where the idea of the LTL Homestay came from. Needless to say, it is one of our greatest ideas – 80% of LTL students choose to live with a local Beijing family.

For a more independent option, we also offer shared apartments and studio apartments close to our school.

How do I get to my homestay family from the airport?

We can pick you up.

You can also make your way if you fancy a challenge to get yourself started but typically after a long flight students prefer to be taken directly by our drivers.

Can I arrive home late at night?

As long as you show respect and don’t make loud noises then this is fine.

Regular communication (using WeChat) is encouraged so your homestay family knows you are safe and well.

How do you decide on the homestay family for me?

We do our very best to get to know you before placing you.

We have a wide range of families all with different traits and hobbies, this allows us to make the perfect match.

Do I get a house key?

Yes, you will do.

Can someone come and stay over at my homestay?

No this is not allowed.

Will I receive information about my host family before?

Yes we will send you an information pack to your email.

Can I lock my bedroom door?

Yes of course this is no problem.

Can I stay in a homestay and not book a Mandarin course?

No. Our homestays are reserved for our students only.
