When you decide to learn Chinese in China, you may be curious what’s included in tuition. At Keats School in Kunming, China, the tuition doesn’t just include classes, it includes a lot more to be excited about.

In this blog post, we’ll break down everything you get when you sign up for our intensive one-on-one classes.

STUDY CHINESE IN CHINA: THE COST AT KEATS

Our most popular course option at Keats School is our intensive one-on-one. Not only is it the most popular, it’s also the best way to learn Mandarin and the easiest way to learn the Chinese language. Keats has been offering this study abroad program in China since we were founded in 2004.

The tuition for the one-on-one class depends on the program duration you choose and how many hours of studying you’d like to do.

Classes run from 1 week long to 52 weeks and you can choose to study Mandarin in China for 4 or 6 hours a day.

The majority of our students who apply for the intensive one-on-one class learn Mandarin in China for 4 to 12 weeks and study for 4 hours a day.

WHAT’S INCLUDED WITH TUITION

In addition to the learn Mandarin in China course with a private instructor, you receive a lot more when studying at Keats Chinese.

But, you can also pick different classes to attend:

FREE SERVICES WHEN YOU LEARN MANDARIN IN CHINA

When you study Mandarin in China at a university, you only get the classes. But at Keats School we want your money to go further, that’s why we offer a number of free services for our students.

Our free services include:

  • Airport pick-up and drop-off
  • Unlimited gym membership at Keats Fitness Center
  • Laundry
  • Internet access use without limit or you can use the computers at school for free
  • A tour of the surrounding area (bank, supermarket, post office etc.)
  • Travel planning in China
  • Medicine for minor illnesses

Keats believes that you should experience more than a classroom where you’re learning Mandarin while you study in China. Keats School is your second home and we want you to feel that.

By offering private bedrooms, free laundry and the ability to connect to the internet allows you to feel comfortable while away from friends and family.

EXERCISE AND HEALTH

We know that a healthy exercise and food are important while studying Chinese in China.

When you sign up for our intensive one-on-one class, you will gain access to our state-of-the-art fitness centre. This centre is available any hour of the day to get your sweat on.

Studies show that the use of exercise increases the function of the memory sections of the brain. Regular exercise changes the brain to improve memory and thinking skills. This is a huge reason to check out the Keats Fitness Centre while learning Chinese.

In addition to exercise, eating healthy foods are just as important. Like we mentioned above, we offer three meals a day for Keats Students from Monday to Friday. Keats Cafeteria uses healthy vegetables that are directly bought from farmers. We never use frozen meat, instead, all meat is fresh.

The huge difference between Keats’ cafeteria and other restaurants is all the ingredients we use to cook are good for your health.

For breakfast, we provide fresh vegetables, fruits, fried eggs, cakes, fried rice, meat, yogurt, milk, coffee, cereal, and Yunnan rice noodles.

For lunch, we provide about 10 delicious Chinese dishes with dumplings and rice.

For dinner, we provide about 10 delicious Chinese dishes with fruits and rice.

It has been notable because I have met a lot of people who I met first time last year like me to come back to Keats this year. The teaching has been fantastic. The teachers carefully prepare each lesson. I think this one-on-one approach is really a great way perhaps anyway to rapidly increase your level of Chinese and increase your confidence and fluency with the language.

Intensive One on One Chinese Classes

So during my first week at Keats, I didn’t dare to speak any Chinese words. I found out that my Chinese level quickly improved since then. Although I have many options to study in China, for example some other schools have homestay, I found I could immerse myself and fully focus on learning Chinese by staying at Keats.

This is my second time coming. Last year, I also came for about 12 weeks. This time I came for 13 weeks. The reason why I particularly want to come to this school was because of the one-on-one classes. I was able to increase my level and learn more quickly than group classes. If I have a chance again to come next year, I certainly will.

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.

Intensive One on One Chinese Classes

I really enjoy this place because we have private lessons. I took the 6-hour program, 4 hours in the morning, 2 in the afternoon. Even though it is quite a lot, the teaching is complimentary. This is very helpful because I could review what I did before and learn new things. My 2 teachers are fantastic. We live in the school, so it is convenient. It is interesting to me to meet people from all over the world.

Kunming is a great place to learn Chinese because not many Chinese on the street speak English. Keats has been a great school for me and a lot of other foreigners who studied in china recommended it to me. I think they are all right. The study method here is really structured. They make learning Chinese really easy. There are also a lot of cultural and natural places to visit.
