Your Free Personal Assessment

This is not a test, just a way for us to know your current Chinese level in order to find you the right group class.

If you are a complete beginner there is no problem, but if you already know some Chinese, we will assess you before you start your Mandarin courses in Singapore.

You don’t have to worry, really! The assessment is in fact a simple conversation with our Director of Studies, who will ask simple questions to get to know your level. This small chat we allow us to put you in the right class with the right teacher, so you can make the most of your stay.

This step is VERY IMPORTANT to your progress in Mandarin. We don’t want you to feel too far behind, or too advanced, so we will find you the perfect class.

NOTE – If you don’t know any Chinese and are a complete beginner, you can start at any date stated above. If you already know some Mandarin, you can start any Monday of the year.

Group classes in Singapore - FAQ's

Should I choose group or individual lessons?

It’s up to you, really. 

But if you already know some Mandarin, a group class might not be the best option. Indeed, levels between students tend to vary a lot from the intermediate to the most advanced level. In that case, 1-on-1 lessons are more appropriate.

For complete beginners, a group class or an Intensive course would be a good option. That way you can start learning Chinese with other students of a beginner level, and progress together towards higher levels.

One of the benefit of the individual classes, is that you can choose what to learn and focus on a certain aspect of the language. In short, you can tailor every lesson to your needs and likings.

Contact us directly through the contact form or via the live chat, so we can discuss what type of class would suit you best.

What does a typical lesson at LTL look like ?

During your lessons you’ll cover all aspects of the language: speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

The teachers will also encourage you to use as much Chinese as possible during the lesson. The time is divided by 70% speaking and 30% writing, since speaking Chinese will be more useful in your day to day life in China.

Usually the week is divided like this:
Mon-Wed-Fri – Speaking & Listening
Tues-Thur – Writing & Reading

You won’t have time to be bored in class with LTL!

Will I study with someone from my country?

Your fellow students can come from absolutely every country in the world. Maybe they will come from the same country, maybe not.

To this day, LTL have had more than 5,000 students from more than 100 countries. It is your chance to make international friends and learn about other cultures.

What can I do to learn faster?

There is so many things you can do speed up your progress!

Are group classes the same no matter the city?

Yes, they are.

No matter the city you choose to take group classes in, be it Singapore, Beijing, Shanghai or Chengdu, the format will be the same and teachers will provide the same sort of lesson structure.
