Language course Chinese in Beijing

LTL Live the Language

Located in the centre of Beijing’s Central Business District, our partner school LTL (Live the Language) is situated in a very lively area, with hundreds of restaurants, shops and bars within a few minutes walking distance. With the next subway station (Da Wang Lu, where lines 1 and 14 meet) less than 500 meter from the school, the Forbidden City, 798 Art District or the Sanlitun nightlife district are just a few subway stops away. Yet the school itself is located in a very quiet and green development, with a gym & swimming pool, public basketball court and a lot of trees inside the compound. The school has a very “family-style” feeling, where teachers and students eat lunch together often go for dinner after class and there is always someone around in the sofa area to either have a chat or help with your homework.
