Keats School helps students obtain a visa. We’re here to help you make the process easier. So much easier than we will actually take care of certain parts of the application for you.
There are two options when it comes to Visas and Keats School:
1. Apply for a 30/60/90/120/180-day X2 student visa in your country. Keats School will send you an official admission letter on behalf of the school and a copy of the school’s license.

Keats Chinese teachers have a well-organized teaching system. Our teachers use the latest and professional teaching methods created and tested by the Keats team.
There’s a significant difference between teachers at Keats School and outside tutors. Keats teachers are highly responsible for their students, and they have rich and comprehensive experiences in teaching Chinese.
Every two weeks, our teachers meet for a Teaching Methods Conference, which we focus on exchanging teaching experience. At the conference, critical grammar issues and efficient learning methods will be discussed. The conference keeps Keats teachers always at a professional level. On top of that teachers take part in on-going training and are fully licensed.
Keats Mandarin teachers are well prepared for each lesson they teach. Their daily teaching syllabi and lesson plans are evaluated by the Teaching Quality Control Team every week.
We hope that having professional teachers makes you feel safe in your studies. We’re here to help you grow your fluency, and we want to do it in a professional and trained way.
When you become a student at Keats, you will have the chance to evaluate teachers every week through the Keats Feedback Form. This will help us with teacher training and our overall system.

I have really enjoyed the Chinese course in China at Keats and meeting the teachers here and the students. We have a lot of fun in class. It is a really great school to learn with good teaching methods and a really good textbook, examples and games, and everything.
I found Keats to be very good, teachers are excellent and really take the students seriously. Kunming is the best place to learn Mandarin in China. The environment is awesome, no pollution. The air quality is great, good weather. The people here are very friendly. I come to take classes every day. I feel comfortable studying Chinese at Keats. I learned so many things, although I only studied at Keats for 2 months. I am really satisfied with my teacher. For us foreigners, Keats is the best Chinese school in China. Therefore, I would highly recommend Keats to all of you.
We use a lot of games to learn grammar and new words. We have really good teachers, really patient. She helps us a lot. Our class is really nice and we have people from all over the world, different countries. We often discuss topics in Chinese in our class. I live in the dorm of Keats. It is very convenient. I don’t have to spend time traveling. You can just focus on learning Chinese.
My first semester that I studied at another school, and the pressure there was pretty high, the classroom hour was long, and the homework was pretty tedious. Since I came to Keats, I found I have a lot more opportunities to speak in the classroom. My classmates all are fluent and love speaking and participating in the class. We have great classroom dynamic.
Last year I started studying Chinese at University. The reason that I came here is that currently, I’m preparing for the HSK 5 test. Also, I heard that this is one of the best schools to study Mandarin in China. After I came here I realized that Kunming is a pretty cool city to live in and with regards to the teachers’ teaching methods, I think they’re very professional. And I think the language environment is good so now I’m ready to take the HSK 5.
I decided to learn Chinese in Kunming because I like smaller cities and I like the climate here. We had four hours a day study here and my dear teacher taught me very much and never lost her patience with me. It was a really wonderful experience to be here and I recommend Keats school and the teachers here to everyone who likes to learn Chinese in China.
Before I came to Keats School, I had no confidence in my Chinese proficiency. I did not have the confidence to speak Mandarin Chinese and chat with Chinese people. However, after 4 months of study at Keats, I become more and more confident in speaking Chinese now. Studying Chinese in China at Keats School has been the best decision I have ever made. There are many games in the class, and my teacher’s teaching methods are also very interesting. My experience at Keats School has changed my view of China and Chinese people.
I have 2 teachers, and I do 4 hours a day. So I have got Dong Laoshi and Jin Laoshi. Both of them are very good. They made the experience very nice to me. They are willing to help you whenever, so if you ever have a question here, the teachers are always there to help you whether it is visas, whether it is getting around the city. Everyone wants to talk to you.
