Semester in Shanghai
Spend a full university-style semester in Shanghai studying Chinese at LTL Mandarin School.
This intensive 18-week program will get you using the language from Day One.
As part of a small group of no more than five other international students, you’ll cover all aspects of Mandarin Chinese: speaking, listening, reading and writing.
- Chinese Semester in Shanghai
- Full semester of study (18 weeks)
- Small group classes (max 6 students)
- LTL-designed, academic curriculum
- Professional, experienced teachers
- International social environment
You’ll be in the classroom for four hours per day, Monday to Friday, and get the help and support you need to immerse yourself in the Chinese language outside of the classroom too.
All of our teachers are fully-qualified and experienced in teaching Chinese, having dedicated their career to dispelling the myth of Chinese being a difficult language to learn.
Thanks to the small size of the group classes, you will get the individual attention you need from your teacher to master the basics of tones, everyday vocabulary and the Chinese writing system.
The course curriculum has been designed to get students from absolute beginner to at least HSK 3 after just one semester – and many hardworking, motivated LTL students have achieved well beyond that in so short a time. For those who return for a second semester of study, you could expect to reach functional fluency in under a year.
