The great thing with the LTL fixed schedule online Chinese lessons is that you can start at almost any time you want. We open three new courses for each of our five levels – complete beginner, HSK 1 to HSK 6 – every week.

This means that we have on average about 160 different courses running at any time.

Whatever your level, course preference or time zone, there is a suitable course happening right now that you can join. If you want to join a course from the beginning, for 80% of our students there is a course available to join next week and you are guaranteed to never have to wait for more than three weeks.

If you want to check the exact starting time available, send us a message via the contact box above with your level, time zone and preferred course option.

You will have an exact schedule in your inbox within less than 24 hours during working times.


Each class is taught using a teaching PDF designed especially for it.

Students can access all teaching PDFs through their student login before and after the class.

At the end of each class the teacher shares an annotated version of the PDF that will include additional vocabulary and examples that were taught during the class.


We’ve been around the block many, many times. Trust is key with brands and we aim to gain your trust in a matter of minutes.

Why should I study Chinese Online?

Learning Chinese online allows you to get the best Mandarin teachers without having to travel to China and you pay a much lower rate.

The quality of teaching and classes is just as high as it would be if you were here with us in China, and the cost is much lower.

It also allows you to live your day to day life and study Mandarin around you.

What software do you use for Online classes?

All our classes take place via Zoom.

Can I purchase these courses online?

Yes, you can by using the pricing table above.

What HSK Level am I?

If you are not sure of your current HSK level check out our HSK levels page which will give you an idea of where you are at.

You can also take a free HSK vocabulary test for each level which you can find here.

Which books to you use?

Traditional Chinese learning text books are not suitable for online classes.

That is why all Online classes are taught according to the award winning LTL online curriculum.

The LTL online curriculum has been especially developed for online Chinese language teaching.

It includes teaching PDFs, audio files and links to additional resources for review. You will notice the difference.

If you scroll back up you can download some sample teaching PDFs we use.

Will I have the same teacher?

Yes you will.

Fixed online group classes are always taught by the same teacher throughout.

Can I book additional classes?

Yes you can buy and book additional classes at any time.

We offer special review, free speaking and “Games & Chinese” classes that you can book in addition to your fixed group classes.

Can I change programs and/or levels?

Yes, it is possible to switch between different programs at any time.

You can switch between the standard (4h/week) and intensive (10h/week) programs whenever you want.

You can also change the time slots (weekday/weekend) you are studying at as well as your time zone preferences.

It is also possible to change to a higher or lower level course if you feel your current course is not enough / too challenging without problems.

Just let us know 72 hours in advance and you can switch into another group at any time.

Can I study Chinese individually instead?
Can I choose what I want to study?

With our 1-on-1 courses yes you can, but with group classes we follow a set curriculum because of course there will be other class members with you.

How long are classes?

Classes are 120 minutes in the week and 4 hours during the weekend, again dependant on the package you buy.

Can I pay by Credit Card?

You can indeed pay with Credit card or the Stripe payment platform.

Can I see your team of teachers?

Absolutely, check out our team page here or visit our YouTube channel and get to know us better.

What is the average class size?

Online teaching works well, however only in small groups so each student gets the opportunity to speak a lot.

That is why on average our online small group classes have about two students.

What if I am in a different time zone?

All our group classes are taught according to the three main time zones our students are in:

Eastern Standard (New York)

Central Europe (Paris/Rome)

China (Beijing/Hong Kong)

However it is of course no problem to join a fixed time group if you are in a different time zone.

The classes will just be at a bit different time for you than the other students.

Due to us offering about 160 different courses at any time, there is always going to be a group course that fits you.

Can I cancel my classes?

Yes you can.

It is possible to cancel your classes at any time.

As long as you do so at least 72 hours in advance you can book another make up class instead.

If you cancel less than 72 hours ahead, we will send you the teaching materials and you have to review the class yourself

When can I start?

You can start your class next week.

With more than 160 ongoing Chinese online courses we always offer every course option, which you can join straight away.

If you want to join a new course from the beginning you will have to wait no more than three weeks to join a new course.
