If you want to learn Mandarin Chinese while experiencing the stunningly beautiful scenery of China, the Chinese Language Course + Tour in China program is for you. We will design your Chinese language course according to your personal needs and organize your trips to different parts of China. For the Chinese language course, you can choose to study for 4 hours/day or 6 hours/day of intensive immersion one-on-one Chinese lessons from 1 week to 52 weeks. For traveling in China, you can choose to travel for 1 week or 2 weeks. We will combine the two parts and create a customized program for you.


This is a hassle-free program where you do not need to worry about study plans, travel plans, transportation, food, hotel, airport pick-up, etc because we will do everything for you. The tours/trips in China will be led by a professional Keats Chinese teacher, which means you will learn Mandarin Chinese in a practical context.


A notable feature of the Chinese Language Course + Tour in China program is that you can come alone to study Chinese and then invite your friends or family to join the tours in China if they are not interested in learning Chinese. This gives you a chance to gather with your family while you learn Chinese in Kunming. It is a good opportunity to practice and show off your Mandarin Chinese skills.

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

I have been to Keats School to learn Chinese for 4 times now. The reason for coming back to this school is pretty much that the teachers I did work with were very good Chinese teachers. I make it a 5-year plan or even a 10-year plan to come back to this school.  All the teachers have methods of looking at what your skills are. They are aware of at what level you are. I think it is worth for everyone.

星河明 | Japan
Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

I took the one-on-one Intensive Chinese class for 6 hours a day. The classes are very interesting. The teachers are caring and the content the teacher teaches me is suitable for my level. It is an easy way to learn Mandarin. I have a lot of time practicing Chinese in class. The food is great here. I have improved my Chinese through this program at Keats.

Sarah | Dubai
Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

My teachers are all excellent. They trained the teachers so professionally. I feel like I learn very quickly with my teacher. They are very serious about their students and I know every teacher is like this. I would highly recommend that you come to Keats if you are looking for the best Chinese school in China.

Faith | UK
Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

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.

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

I found Keats School and I am so glad that I did. When you learn Chinese in China at Keats, you are fully being taken care of. My teacher is really great and we become lovely friends.

Caroline | France
Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

It is very comfortable studying at Keats. The teachers are very friendly. I welcome you to come to study Chinese in China at Keats.

Hilary | USA
Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

I’ve had a really great time here. I’ve studied a lot with my teacher who was fantastic. Keats School tried very hard to match its students with really good teachers that their personality works very well together. I really enjoy studying Chinese at Keats and I will definitely come back.

Sylvia | USA
Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

One thing I really liked was that I was able to work with my teacher to make an individual plan of study. Another really nice thing is that you live at the school, you feel completely safe.  You always have a group of people who are willing to do things with you on the weekends or in the evenings. They are serving you all the 3 meals a day, the food was excellent.


If I choose a 2 week Chinese course in Kunming + 2 weeks travel, how is it organized? Course before, trip afterwards?

You can design your own Chinese language course + Tour program. For example, you can do a 2-week course and then a 2-week travel, or you can do 1-week course, and then 1-week travel, and then 1-week course, and then 1-week travel (still 2 weeks of course + 2 weeks of travel). You can do the combination at your preference.

For the Chinese language course, you can choose to study for 4 hours/day or 6 hours/day of intensive one-on-one Chinese immersion classes from 1 week to 52 weeks. For the tours in Yunnan, you can choose to travel for 1 week or 2 weeks. You can decide when to take the tours during the program.

Is it learning Mandarin while touring or is it one week learning and then touring after?

The Chinese language course + Tour program is a program that combines the intensive one-on-one Chinese course with trips, but you are not taking them together. You can choose to study Chinese in Kunming with 4 or 6 hours per day of Chinese lessons, then you can take a 1-week or 2-week tour after the Chinese language program finishes. The Chinese lessons and the tours are separate, but you can decide when to take the tour. For example, if a student takes a Chinese language course for 8 weeks + 1-week tour, he/she can decide when to take the tour. For example, he/she can take the tour after 4 weeks of Chinese lessons, then take another 4 weeks of lessons after the tour, or he/she can take the 1-week tour after 8 weeks of one-on-one Chinese lessons. 

I don't know when to take the tour, does Keats have some suggestions?

If you are a short-term student who studies less than 4 weeks, you can take the 1-week tour or 2-week tour after you finish your one-on-one Chinese lessons in Kunming. In this way, you can practice what you have learned in the classroom during the trip because you will be accompanied by a Keats Chinese teacher during the trip.

If you are a long-term student who studies for more than 4 weeks, we can arrange the tours during the middle of your Chinese program. Now you can have a break from your Chinese lessons by taking wonderful tours in Yunnan. The tours will make you refreshed and re-energized and get you ready for your second part of Chinese lessons. Here is a sample schedule:

Chinese lessons for 10 weeks –> Tour for 1 week –> Chinese lessons for another 10 weeks –> Tour for another week

Are the meals included?

The 3 meals a day  are offered Monday to Friday when you take Chinese classes at Keats.

The price includes breakfast when you travel. The price does not include lunch or dinner when you travel because you will have many options to choose from.

If I join for the immersion, can I bring my wife as a +1 for the travel portion of the trip and she would stay with me in my room?

Yes, you are very welcome to bring your wife to join the tour. Family members and friends are encouraged to join the tour if they don’t take Chinese classes at Keats. You can select 2 PERSONS in the tour part when you register.

If you travel by yourself, you can select 1 PERSON when you register.

What's the check-in date and check-out date?

Your accommodation at Keats starts on Sunday. You can arrive on a Sunday and start your lessons on Monday. The check-out date is Saturday after you finish your lessons on Friday. If it is hard to find the best flight to arrive on Sunday or to leave on Saturday and you need to arrive one day earlier or leave one day later, that’s also possible. The extra cost for accommodation is RMB 200/night.
