Learning Chinese in Chengde: LTL Chengde reviews, discussions and information

Recommended Posts

@zander1

Thanks a lot for the review (finally someone wrote something - I was getting worried!) and I am very happy to hear that you really enjoyed the experience, found the homestay family lovely and your teacher good and professional (I will pass on the compliment). I agree that this family cooks amazing food :tong.

You are also absolutely right that Chengde is an extreme immersion experience without any foreigners around you and no opportunities to speak English, so this is definitely not for everyone. Though in my experience it is more about the attitude than the Chinese level. For a beginner complete immersion is of course too advanced though and starting with a course in Beijing first is definitely the right way to do it.

Great that you passed the HSK and hope to see you soon in Beijing / Chengde again.

We are teaching classes online in Chengde now too for this week. We currently only have one student there (the one unfortunately decided to fly home last weekend) so it's not too much of a change.

Hopefully can go back to normal next week. There are no cases (even suspected ones) in Chengde city, only one guy who had come back from Hubei in village that administratively belongs to Chengde but actually is pretty far out. I suspect Chengde will be the first school to go back to normal classes as there really is no need for alarm there.

First Covid Virus free LTL School City: Chengde.

 

While the same restrictions as all of China still apply of course, there are now ZERO Covid cases in Chengde. Finally some good news - lets hope we can report similar numbers for the other LTL school cities soon.
