There is not only high-quality Chinese course but also amazing touring destinations
Kunming is the provincial capital city of Yunnan province that boasts the mildest climate in China during the summer season. By learning Chinese in Kunming, you can get rid of scorching heat and high humidity.

Updates about the student visa application
At the moment, China is still very careful about visa issuing.
Only international employees who are required to back to China for resuming working or business can apply for a valid visa such as a working visa and business visa. The border will not be open until most Chinese people get vaccinated. That is to say, there is a great possibility when over 1 billion of the Chinese population have vaccinated successfully (approximately equal to 2 billion doses of the vaccination), the border could reopen and international students may apply for a student visa again.
As of June 8th, 2021, China has reported a total of 80,8962,000 doses of the new coronavirus vaccine. And it is estimated that the goal of 2 billion doses of the vaccination can be completed at the end of the year. At Keats School, all of our teachers and staff have completed two doses of vaccines. We are working on helping our international students to have vaccination as well if they are willing to take the Chinese vaccine.
The earliest possible time to come to China might be early next year when the winter Olympics will be held in China.
We are excited about what we achieved in the past several months and also looking forward to the rest months of this year. Since the outbreak of COVID-19 last year, many of us have experienced a tough time, but we all survived and we got it through eventually.
Keats School will get fully ready to bring the top-quality Chinese course to our students as always do. No matter where you come from, who you are, only if you’re passionate about learning Chinese and studying Chinese culture, you will be always welcome to join the elite Mandarin community of Keats School!
