Program Intro

Personalized Study Plan

    The private one-on-one Chinese language program has been the most popular program since the school started in 2004. We develop personalized learning materials exclusively for you to meet your learning goals and requirements. Intensive one-on-one Chinese instruction provides you with more opportunities to practice your spoken Chinese and get a real-time correction. We will develop a curriculum for you based on your level of Chinese language skills. In this way, you will maximize the amount that you learn at Keats. You can tell us whatever you want to learn. Before starting the lessons, you will have a talk with your teacher so that the teacher can prepare the lessons according to your requirements and preference.

    Start Anytime

      Keats School opens all year round, including the national holidays. You can come to study ANYTIME according to your schedule. You will be assigned an academic advisor who will help make your transitions to studying in China more smooth. Your progress will be tracked and teaching strategies will be adjusted to meet your learning requirements. The one-on-one Chinese immersion program is the best way to study Mandarin in China. If you want to be fluent in Chinese and master the Chinese language, we suggest a one-year Chinese language course in China at Keats.

      Study, Live and Dine in ONE Building

        You do not have to catch a bus and rush to school from where you live; and you do not have to search for where to eat after class; because you can study, eat and live in ONE BUILDING. This is really hard to find when you study Chinese in China. Keats owns 54 single dorm rooms with private bathrooms. Most of the time, the school is fully booked. Make sure you register early enough to get a room in the school building.

        Chinese Language Immersion Program

          There are two choices for one-on-one Chinese language classes: 4 hours per day (20 hours per week) and 6 hours per day (30 hours per week). You can choose the level of intensity according to your needs. If your time to study in China is very limited and you want to make the most out of your time at Keats, 6 hours per day is recommended. If you are on a vacation and want to have a relaxed schedule while making solid progress, 4 hours per day is recommended. The intensive one-on-one Mandarin course is the best immersion language program in China for adults/teenagers.

          CULTURAL ELECTIVES

          If you are interested in Chinese culture, you are very welcome to take some Chinese culture lessons while you take the one-on-one Chinese language class at Keats.

          If you want to bring back gifts for your family and friends, a beautiful work of Chinese calligraphy written by you couldn’t be better. After taking 3 to 5 lessons of Chinese calligraphy, our students are able to write their own works of Chinese calligraphy. There are 2 hours for one Chinese calligraphy lesson and 2 lessons per week. They are arranged either in the evening or at a time when you are not in your Chinese language classes.

          If you want to keep healthy, Tai Chi/Taiji or Kung Fu can be a great choice for the time you are in China. When you practice Tai Chi, you will learn the hard and soft martial art technique, and enjoy the philosophy of Yin and Yang. Both Tai Chi and Kung Fu are good for self-defense, aesthetic appeal and physical and mental health. There are 2 hours for one Tai Ji/Kung Fu lesson and 2 lessons per week.

          If you want to take the tasty Chinese cuisine back home, take our Chinese cooking class because we will teach you how to prepare delicious Chinese food. You may wonder why the Kong Pao Chicken served at Keats is way more delicious than the one served in Chinatown in your country. At Keats, you will find the answer and the secret behind Chinese cooking. After taking the Chinese cooking class, you will be able to prepare your own food at home and surprise your friends at a party or family gathering. You will learn to cook 4 dishes per week.

          The Chinese musical instrument can be chosen from Guzheng, Erhu, Pipa and Hulusi. Guzheng, Erhu, and Pipa have thousands of years of history and have distinctive sounds. Guzheng and Pipa were important musical instruments in ancient Chinese palace and favored by many Chinese emperors. Erhu was originated from Tang Dynasty and was very popular in the northern area. Hulusi is a typical Yunnan musical instrument, and a classic representation of minority music. The Chinese musical instrument is 2 hours per lesson, 2 lessons per week.

          At Keats, I have a lot of opportunities to practice what I have learned. I really like this school, because I can learn Chinese in one-on-one style, so I think this is the best way and my teacher is the best teacher. I feel that without my teacher, my Chinese will definitely not improve so much. I’m very happy because at Keats, I have improved my Chinese significantly.
