Why Shanghainese?

Speaking Shanghainese is also a surefire way for a foreigner living in Shanghai to impress locals. 

Although you don’t need to speak Shanghainese to live in Shanghai, it’s a super skill to have and a very useful one too.

Taking Shanghainese lessons online with us may well unlock doors to the city you never thought possible.

Why LTL?

First and foremost, we’ve been teaching Mandarin, Shanghainese and other dialects for years and years.

We care about all forms of Chinese, and that includes local variations like Shanghainese.

Due to this, we take great care in hiring the best local teachers who can impart their wisdom onto you like no one else can.

Do many people still speak Shanghainese?

It’s estimated around 20% of the population of Shanghai still speak Shanghainese.

The dialect is indeed a dying one, but that is part of the reason why we want to teach it, because we care.

Shanghainese can open up more doors than one might think.

Because of this our Shanghainese Lessons are actually really popular especially with students who have some form of affiliation to Shanghai.

Do you have materials I can use to review content also?

Yes all our classes come with additional materials and resources which will be available for you to download.

All of this is, of course, included in the final price.

Do any of your team speak Shanghainese?

Our native Shanghai teachers of course!

Our Taipei School Director, Alex, also speaks Shanghainese after learning with our teachers!
