Services from LTL
Coming all the way to Singapore, no matter where you are in the world, is something new, something exciting, and something different.
There’s a lot to think about and it’s never as straightforward as you hope, but it doesn’t have to be difficult with LTL Mandarin School.
That is exactly why we provide you with a number of services which aim to make your transition when coming to Singapore, smooth and satisfying.
These things range from simple, yet timely chores like getting a public transport card and a Mobile SIM card to slightly more complex issues that may arise like dealing with banks. You’d just rather it be done than have to waste time jumping from metro to metro, shop to shop, right?
This is where the LTL Services packages come to your rescue…

The connection kit aims to guide you in making friends as quickly as possible in a land where you most likely have few contacts, if any.
One of the key things we will tell our students to do is make friends with local Chinese as much as possible. This is one of THE best ways to learn Chinese.
Therefore, our connection kit pairs you with someone of similar interest and hobbies. This means when you arrive in Singapore you will have a contact before even starting, and what’s more, you will have similar interests.
Our connection kit helps introduce you to two people…
Your Student Ambassador
Being a Mandarin School in Singapore, we know loads of people here and they are all ready to help you with your Mandarin and keep you away from the perils of speaking just English outside of the classroom.
Language Exchange Friend
A language exchange friend is common throughout the world and is a great way to learn a language whilst helping someone else learn yours.
Talk about all kinds of things, teach your friend your native language, and learn about Chinese culture and the language as you go, a fair trade!
