Multi City Program Options
Metropolitan China (Beijing - Shanghai)
Beijing and Shanghai, two incredible cities in their own right. Both offer such different opportunities in such diverse environments. You’ll learn the culture of this wonderful country and enhance your language skills when studying Chinese abroad with LTL. Choose one of our three course options below and get on the road to studying Chinese abroad.
You can choose between three program options.
Metropolitan China Standard
Our standard package includes 20 hours of small group classes each week. Our Shanghai school is located in the old French concession. In Beijing, you’ll be right in the thick of the action in the central business district (CBD). The 20 hour program each week will be the perfect opportunity to push on your Mandarin knowledge.
Metropolitan China Intensive
If you want to absolutely maximise your time in Metropolitan China and progress your Mandarin, this is the course for you. As with the standard package you will receive 20 hours of group classes but on top of that you also get 10 hours of 1 on 1 classes, this is where your Mandarin language skills will progress even faster.
Metropolitan China Individual
Receive 20 hours of 1 on 1 classes every week with our individual package. All focus will be on you as you enhance your Mandarin language skills as quickly as possible. The study plan will be personalised so you achieve the goals you strive for before arriving in China. The perfect program if you want speedy progression.
All our Metropolitan programs include airport pickup, your transport between cities and your survival kit upon arrival.
Survival kits include a Chinese Mobile SIM card (make sure your phone is unlocked), help with police registration, help with setting up a bank account, a bicycle to use, public transport cards including money, local maps and the guidance of the LTL support team 24/7.
The duration of the course is entirely up to you, with a minimum of 4 weeks and the maximum 52 weeks. The longer you join multi city Chinese program, the greater the saving.
Where will I stay?
We have a number of accommodation options which are priced the same in both cities. Our Homestays ensure you utilise everything you learn in the classroom or you can opt for our serviced or shared apartments with fellow LTL students. We aim to locate you within a relatively short commute from the school whether in Apartments or Homestays.
3 City Combo (Shanghai - Beijing - Chengde)
Experience all three cities on offer from the modern day metropolis of Shanghai to the full immersion experience in Chengde. Your journey will start in Shanghai before heading north to Beijing. You’ll conclude your adventure in Chengde where your Mandarin knowledge will really boost due to zero foreign contact.
We offer three different programs here which are as follows:
Three City Standard
Our standard package offers 20 hours of Mandarin lessons a week. Classes are small and intimate, with one of our expert teachers in our Shanghai school. After that, it’s on to Beijing. However, we raise the bar when you get to Chengde. 20 hours of private lessons every week and no English allowed. Full immersion will see your Chinese language skills improve rapidly.
Three City Intensive
Throw yourself in the deep end with 30 hours of Chinese Language lessons every week at our schools. 20 hours of group classes, and 10 hours of one to one tutoring in Shanghai and Beijing. When you head to Chengde you’ll have a whole 30 hours a week of private one to one classes. If you really want to enhance your Mandarin as quickly as possible, we recommend this program.
Three City Individual
Our individual course allows you to mould the course around your specific needs and goals. In Shanghai, Beijing and then finally Chengde you will study 20 hours of private, 1 on 1 classes each week. This gives you the opportunity to set specific targets, goals and topics you wish to achieve. Chengde is the perfect way to end your trip as you will experience full immersion.
Three City Prices (CNY)
Likewise, with the Metropolitan programs, the same package is included in the price. Airport pickup, transport between cities and your survival kit making your transition to China that little bit more comfortable.
Survival kits include a Chinese SIM card (make sure your phone is unlocked before coming to China), help with police registration and setting up any new bank accounts. Additionally you’ll also receive usage of a bicycle, public transport cards topped up for convenience, maps and our 24/7 support.
The duration of the course can be a minimum of 4 weeks and the maximum 52 weeks. Chat to us for further details and we will make sure you are matched with the perfect Multi City Program.
Chinese Immersion Program (Beijing - Chengde)
This unique Chinese Immersion program allows you to gain a real insight into modern-day China from two very different perspectives.
Students spend the first half of their Chinese language course at our Beijing school right in the heart of the Central Business District. You will then take the train to the city of Chengde, China’s old Imperial Summer Capital, nestled in the mountains of Hebei province.
This is a whole new experience in itself and because of this we’ve made another page for it.
