    Learn Mandarin and experience the amazing history and culture hidden in bustling metropolis and beautiful ancient towns with a gap year in China. Choose from one of LTL’s four programs, each designed to provide you with an unforgettable experience…

    The program begins with 18 weeks on Chinese language classes. You will do 20 hours of Chinese class a week, divided into 4 hours a day, Monday to Friday. You will be in groups of no more than 6 students to ensure you get the attention you need in the classroom to advance quickly. Group classes allow you to make quick friends so you have someone to explore the thriving social scene in Beijing or Shanghai.

    Once your Chinese language program ends, your 18 week Internship program begins. LTL will strive to find you an internship placement in the industry of your choice. It will be a great opportunity to learn more about your preferred industry on an international scale and allow you to continue to practice those Chinese language skills. At the end of the 18 weeks, LTL can help you extend your Internship, should you wish to, at no extra cost.
