Our Mandarin Teachers

When learning Chinese, it is the teachers that make all the difference. We know that it is our teaching team that has made LTL so successful over the last few years. At LTL we do not employ Chinese tutors, but only fully-accredited and full-time professionals with years of teaching experience and a passion for Mandarin. A good teacher will make a class fun, while keeping it on track to ensure fast language progress. They’ll have a genuine interest in helping students to improve and be able to find the balance between following the curriculum and tackling the individual challenges of each student in the class. And that is what we do – you can see for yourself during class.


We offer morning, evening and weekend part-time classes for professionals who want to study before or after work. You choose which class schedule fits your timetable best and also add additional private Chinese classes if you wish. You can choose any program duration from 6 weeks to 12 or more weeks.

Let Maria help you

After graduating with a BSc in Teaching Mandarin as a Foreign Language from Tianjin Teaching University, Maria Gao 高媛 worked as a Chinese teacher for 10 years and has helped countless learners of the language to achieve their aims. Today, she creates the personal study plans for LTL students, starting with personal language assessments. She also gives advice to students throughout their program – from what textbooks to use, to how to get those tones finally right.

Zoe Stephens Testimony for LTL

I had recently moved to China and wanted to kick-start my Chinese language learning, mainly concentrating on speaking and practical use. LTL did not disappoint! They were extremely flexible with my not-so-flexible work schedule, and I was even able to join onto a course half-way through.

Enjoying a few drinks in Beijing

Enjoying a few drinks in Beijing

This was a group course, but often it turned out that I was the only student, so I also got some great one-on-one practice with my lovely teacher, Lucy. I only attended class 2 times a week of an evening, but I felt my language, and most importantly my confidence  with the Chinese language improved greatly. 

Lucy structured lessons based on life in Beijing, and she would structure learning materials around my level. Despite my basic level, we would also only ever speak in Chinese (when possible!) meaning it was great language immersion. By the end of it, we became good friends and I didn’t want the lessons to be over! 

I hope to go back to the school in a few more months time for another language boost.

Where will the classes take place?

All LTL group classes in Beijing take place at our school in the Central Business District, next to DaWangLu subway station (lines 1 and 14). DaWangLu is one stop from GuoMao (the World Trade Centre), a 15 minute taxi ride from Sanlitun and a short distance from Chaoyang Park, 798, the Lido area or WangJing with line 14. Our school is less than 500m from the subway station. The exact address is:

Guanghua Rd. 2, Sunshine 100, Bldg. C #2910
Tel: + 86 (0) 10 5100 1269

What happens if I miss a class?

If you cannot make it to a lesson, your teacher will let you know the materials that were covered during class and which exercises you should complete before your next class to make sure you are at the same level as everyone else. If you have to miss a longer stretch of classes, it is possible to purchase a limited amount of dedicated 1-on-1 catch up classes at a very special rate of 100 CNY / hour.

Do you offer classes during the daytime too?

Of course we do. Please have a look at our full time Chinese group classes page

Can I just try it out?

No. A class is a group of students studying and facing the challenges of the Chinese language together. For us, the dynamic between students is very important and we value our student community. Having someone just turn up for a day to sit in a class who then might not continue interrupts other students’ progress and study rhythm.

How do I know which group is suitable for me?

Before you start your class, your Student Advisor will do an individual Chinese language level assessment with you. This is not an exam, test or anything else to get worried about, but only to help us to understand your current language level and let you know which group fits your level.

How many students are there in a class?

We have an average of three and guaranteed maximum number of six students per class.
