Our Multi-City programs know no boundaries, anything is possible, but to provide some form of structure we have a couple of set programs to give you examples of how our Multi-City programs work.
Study Mandarin in China’s two main cities. Shanghai and Beijing are not only fierce rivals for the top spot as “China’s greatest city”, but also have very different local cultures and histories.
While Shanghai is very outward-looking, modern and likes to compare itself to cities like New York or London, Beijing is the guardian of China’s ancient culture and heritage.
While Shanghai is the centre of Southern China, Beijing dominates the North – and you will quickly discover that there are very big cultural and historic differences between those two parts of the country. The first half of your Chinese course will be in Shanghai, after which you will move on to Beijing.
You can choose between three program options.
Metropolitan China Standard
Includes 20 hours of small group Mandarin classes per week, first at our downtown Shanghai school in the old French Concessions and then at LTL Beijing, located in the heart of Beijing’s Central Business District.
Metropolitan China Intensive
This is the program for you if you want to maximise your language progress and get ahead with your Mandarin as fast as possible. In both cities you will have 20 hours of small group classes, plus a further 10 hours of private Chinese classes per week.
Metropolitan China Individual
Learn Mandarin at your pace and tailor your course to your needs. You will get 20 hours of private Chinese tuition in both Shanghai and Beijing. The package comes with a free personalised study plan, full language assessment and flexible curriculum.
Metropolitan China Prices (Chinese Yuan)
You can choose any course from four to 52 weeks – please contact us at [email protected] for a full quotation.
Prices include all textbooks, transport between the cities, airport pick up, a local SIM card with data plan, a bicycle, 24/7 support and full access to the LTL student community and support network.
You can combine your program with a homestay, shared apartment or organise your own accommodation. Prices for LTL accommodation options are the same in Shanghai and Beijing.
