Kids studying Chinese
LTL is the biggest and most experienced provider for Chinese learning programs for individual teenagers traveling to China.
]This can either be as part of our general Chinese programs for 14+ teenagers living with a homestay or for 12-17 year olds in our Beijing Summer Camp.
Additionally, we are specialized in organizing custom made trips for the whole family, where one or two parents travel with one or several children to China to explore the country together.
There are many different options, including only the children or also the parents studying Mandarin and the family living together in a serviced apartment or separately in homestays.
Your family will have a dedicated family program advisor who will make organizing the course easy for you, from choosing the appropriate courses and accommodation to organizing visas and getting the admin ready for your trip. Please contact us to let us know about your child’s or family’s requirements and what you are looking for and you will have a reply within less than a working day in your inbox.
The Guardian Program
For teenagers traveling to China by themselves we offer a specialized guardian program. This means there will be a dedicated councilor available for your child providing the additional support your child needs in China. The councilor will also be the official legal guardian of your child in China.
This is especially important if your child should get sick, as international hospitals in Beijing often do not accept underage patients who are not accompanied by a legal guardian.
The same goes for anything having to do with the Chinese bureaucracy from the police registration (officially required for every foreigner within 24 hours upon arrival in China) to visa extensions or anything else that deals with the government. If there is no legal guardian present the authorities might refuse to issue the necessary documents. It also includes a free airport drop off for your child at the end of the course, including assistance with check-in if required.
The guardian program is mandatory for all unaccompanied teenagers younger than 16 years participating and highly recommended for 16 or 17 year old participants.
The guardian program is already included in the LTL Summer Camp, so if your child joins the summer camp there is no need to book this.

Please note – Although the guardian program provides a lot of support and safety, it is not a 24/7 supervision program and does not include insurance. For information about extra supervision and accompanied transport please see the additional options below.
