Flexible Chinese Classes in Shanghai

Working in Shanghai is often not only challenging, but also comes equipped with business trips, evening meetings and other unforeseen events, that make it difficult to follow a regular language program. That is why LTL offers a very popular “Super Flexible Chinese Classes Program” in Shanghai.

This course gives you the option to study whenever you are free and cancel classes at very short notice, without having to pay for them.

Individual classes are tailored according to the student’s needs and study goals, from survival Chinese to specialist industry-specific Chinese.

Flexible Chinese Courses in China

The Fine Print

During working hours (Mon – Fri 9am to 6pm) students can cancel up to two hours before their class is due to start or schedule a class with only six hours notice.

You can meet your teacher either at LTL Mandarin School Shanghai in the French Concession or in your office/home/favourite coffee shop. The decision is entirely up to you and adds to the flexibility of the Super Flexible Chinese Program.

What’s more, there are no teacher transportation charges for any location on Line 1.

While we usually recommend that classes last at least 90 minutes for optimal progress, with the Super Flexible Program it is possible to book only 1 hour sessions.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the Super Flexible Chinese Classes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Until when do I need to use my super flexible Chinese classes in Shanghai?

If you book up to 100 hours of super flexible Chinese classes they will be valid for a full two years. If you book more than one hundred, they will be valid forever and never expire.

Do I need to follow a schedule?

No you do not. It is possible to arrange each class individually. However, for the sake of making steady progress and having a tangible study target, we do advise you to agree on a study schedule at the beginning with one particular teacher, and then try to follow that schedule as far as possible.

Can you issue Fapiaos?

Yes of course we can. However, because Chinese tax regulations are incredibly complex, annoying and sometimes simply do not make sense, we need to know that you want a Fapiao and to whom it should be issued before you start your Mandarin course.

Please note that in China Fapiaos can only be issued to Chinese companies with a Chinese name. However, a normal invoice and receipt can also be issued at a later point and to any entity you want to, including companies with names in languages other than Mandarin.

Can I also study Chinese online with LTL?

Yes, LTL offers online Mandarin classes as well!
