Live The Language (LTL) Mandarin School joins IALC from 1 April 2014 after a successful inspection. Conveniently located in central Beijing, LTL Mandarin School offers a range of Chinese language courses, plus accommodation and an active social program.
School Manager & Owner Andreas Laimboeck admitted to be "quite excited. We have been talking about IALC membership for years and I am very happy we were finally able to apply and got such positive feedback from the IALC inspector.
Many of our agents have been telling us for years that we are a "typical IALC school" and should join. That was our motivation, to connect with other owner managed and personal service focused small and medium sized language schools - and of course agents who are looking to work with schools like this."
Courses at LTL Mandarin School include:
- Family programmes, summer camps for teenagers (12-18 years old) and guardian programmes (for children under 16 years old)
- Standard group courses or individual tuition
- Immersion courses where students get to experience life in Beijing and Chengde
- Exam preparation (HSK), semesters, university pathways, internships
"Our priorities are homestays (80% of our students live in homestays), personal service for students and Chinese language immersion. For our Chengde full immersion programs, the slogan and philosophy is: "Banish English from your life", explains Andreas. Students will benefit from the high standard of teaching (teachers are full time staff), small groups of maximum six students, and a good nationality mix.
Study travel agents can meet Andreas Laimboeck at the next IALC Workshop in Brisbane from 10-13 April 2014.
