Learn Chinese in China

LTL Mandarin School Taiwan (Taibei)


Recommended Posts

LTL opened a new Chinese language school in Taibei. Our Taiwan Chinese language school works very the same as our schools in mainland China, with a strong focus on immersion with Chinese. We organize Chinese language homestays, small group classes (average 3 students/class), 1on1 classes either as a standard (20h/wk) ord intensive (30h/wk) course. We also organize shared apartments (but homestays are better for immersion!) and social events and activities in Taiwan.


We very strongly believe that to learn a language you have to live it (LTL stands for "Live The Language") and being immersed into that language environment and getting out of the expat and English speaking bubble is essential. If you think that too then we are the right school for you.


As in Taiwan google works normally, we can have a proper google maps page for our school there https://goo.gl/maps/b3VqWfEfBE3DLqKH9 and are quite proud of our 5 star rating there (lets hope it stays that way).


Many students combine a Mandarin course in Taiwan with a course at our Beijing, Shanghai or Beihai schools.


Currently we only teach Mandarin Chinese, but for the future I hope we will start offering Taiwanese (Hokkien/Minnanyu/Fujianhua) courses too. Supporting Chinese dialects is something that matters a lot to us, so if you are interested in studying Taiwanese, please get in touch and we will definitely find a way to organize something for you.

@Flickserve Cantonese is planned for Beihai, because its an originally Cantonese speaking city, though there has been a massive influx of NorthEasterners because the climate and environment is so much better than Hebei etc. so Mandarin is the main language now. But we definitely do want to offer Cantonese there too - might be next year only though.


@ChTTay Still in Beijing, but traveling a lot these days ⛷️ I hope all going well in the capital!

Just a quick update, LTL Taipei is running normally next week and classes are not affected by the Corona Virus outbreak in mainland China. There are more people wearing face masks on the street but at the moment thats about it. Homestays, Apartments, social activities etc. all continue as normal.

Maybe, just maybe, it will be possible to travel to Taiwan and study at LTL Taipei again quite soon. 

"During a press conference on Friday afternoon, CECC head Chen Shih-chung (陳時中) said that as other countries open their borders, it is inevitable that Taiwan will do the same."

He added the CECC will make an announcement about loosened border controls in June,



That would be AMAZING 

LTL Taipei is running normally and open, but currently only with students who are already in Taiwan. Hopefully that will change very soon 😍

Amazing news! Taiwan border is opening for working holiday visas next week (25th July). So if you are between 18 and 30 years old, from any of the countries below and want to come to Taipei and for example study Chinese with us at www.ltl-taiwan.com by next week you can. There is a limited quota of visas per country, and its first come first serve and I am pretty sure they will run out very fast, so best to hurry up.

Taiwan plans to open borders in late September

"Wang said the CECC predicts that late September is when border controls can be eased, or early October at the latest."



Rather fantastic news! 😍 LTL Taiwan is up and running as normal (just did a video about it last month https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hx0I7tiKeEo) and we are starting to get quite a few students signing up for October already.

Small groups, 1on1 classes, homestays, shared apartments etc. everything available.

Cant wait....it has been more than two years.

And now it is official: Taiwan is back open.

From the 12th of September Taiwan is restoring visa free entry (90 days) to US, EU, Canada, Australia and New Zealand again - which is exactly how it worked before Covid.




3 days home quarantine and thats it (which they will probably drop soon too, but for the moment still required).

And the good news just keep coming. Taiwan now officially is planning to end quarantine and fully opened its borders on Oct. 13.


Homestays in Taipei are available, as are all group and 1on1 Chinese classes.

Plus visa free entry for most countries (same as pre-pandemic)


I am definitely going in October!
