Big Semi-Annual Keats Event Held at O’Reilly’s

Last Friday, we held our big semi-annual Keats Event – Luncheon at O’Reilly’s Irish Pub. We have invited over 100 students to attend the luncheon and 81 Keats students attended the event. This event was a mix of free lunch and interesting games and shows. We have prepared plenty of free gifts for all the guests.


The luncheon started at 11:15am and our guests began arriving from 10:30am. Each guest received a free school bag packaged with a phrase book written by Keats School, a note book, a pen, a voucher for tuition fee, and a bottle of water at the entrance. Keats staff put on name tags with numbers for our guests. The numbers were for lottery at the end of the luncheon. We chose a luckiest student who could study at Keats for one semester for absolutely free. After the reception, the guests were invited to put their signature on Keats School’s screen and take a memorable picture.



The luncheon officially started at 11:15am with a welcome speech from the hosts Mandy Liu and Margie Ma. Before we got to eat the delicious chili burgers, we firstly played a game called “Pop Quiz” to help the guests warm up and get to know each other. The guests were divided into seven groups and each group needed to answer the question if it was their turn. If the group could not answer the question, the chance would move to the next group. After several competitive rounds, Group 6 finally won the game and each group member received a pack of Chinese chess as a reward. After the interesting game, Joy, the president of Keats School presents a class demo for all the guests. She taught several useful Chinese expressions with the shows performed by Keats teachers. The laughter was full of the pub and some students even took out the notebook to write them down. Then we invited some Keats students to share their study experience at Keats School. While we waited for the chili burgers to be served, Mandy played the traditional Chinese musical instrument for all the guests.



After lunch, we started the most exciting part of the event which was to find out who could study at Keats for free next semester. We invited Tim, the owner and manager of O’Reilly’s Irish Pub, to pick the lucky student from a bag of number cards. We were very excited to find out that DaBenDan from Australia won the lottery and we expressed our great congratulations to him.



After the lottery, we have also prepared two fantastic games for our guests. The first one was to imitate a famous person without describing it by words. The audience needed to guess whom was being imitated. We invited several students to come up to the stage. The acting impressed us a lot. The guests really enjoyed the acting which brought them lots of laughter and fun. Right after this game, we started a singing competition. The guests were divided by the nations they come from. Each group needed to sing a song in their mother language based on the topic assigned to each round. The French team finally won the game. The semi-annual Keats event ended successfully with the smile of each guest’s face. Thanks to all the guests who attended the luncheon, we spent great time together and enjoyed a fabulous lunch and made tons of new friends. We look forward to next big Keats event.

Since last semester, we started studying Chinese at Keats. It was the best choice we can ever make. It is a really good school. The classes are a lot of fun, you learn a lot, but very interactive, so you talk a lot which means it is not just books and writing. Kunming is a really pleasant city to live in, especially if you compare it to other cities in the east. If you like to travel, if you like to study Chinese in a fun way, Keats has the best Chinese language program for you.

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.

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

I can’t tell you how much I liked it. The thing I liked about the teachers and the teaching method is that there is so much flexibility. The other thing I liked about the teaching is the combination of classic textbook learning and going outside. I loved it! I like getting to know other students. Everybody shared the same goal and that’s making their Chinese better. Kunming is a big city, but it is very safe to live here. Another thing I liked about Keats is the idea that people here help you. I can’t recommend it enough. I think it was a valuable experience. Looking forward to coming back!

I think Kunming is a great city, the weather is really good. I really like Keats school and found it is very organized. The teachers here are very good. They have a coffee shop and new classrooms, a new lounge area here now, so you can chill out with your friends and practice your spoken Chinese with natives. If you’re considering coming to Keats to study, I would really recommend it. It’s the best place to learn Mandarin and I think it will be a great experience for you.

I have studied at Keats for 2 semesters. I highly recommend Keats School. If you are very interested in taking a Mandarin course in China, I would suggest you come to Kunming. Kunming people are very friendly. The weather in Kunming is great. So I recommend that you study Chinese at Keats in Kunming.

I’ve been at Keats school and Kunming now for one month doing the one-on-one Chinese lessons with two different teachers. I really enjoy it. Both of my teachers are very friendly and patient. They really helped me to improve my Chinese, both of my reading and speaking. I really enjoy studying Chinese in Kunming as well. This city is really beautiful and the weather is nice, the air is clean. It’s one of the best cities in China to study Chinese.

HSK Test Preparation Course

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.
