Learn Chinese in China with Keats School

Go Back

Breaking! China is open for X2 student visa from TODAY!

After a long wait of 3 years, China finally opens its border today, on Jan 8th, 2023! We can’t express how excited we are to finally welcome you to study Chinese in China. I know many of you have also been waiting to come to China. Although we have been through a hard time in the past three years, we renovated existing school dorm rooms, finished decorating more new dorm rooms, and prepared a brand new gym in the school.

We want to express our sincere gratitude to all the students who donated masks when COVID first started, who paid tuition fees in advance to support the school, who paid tuition fees but were unable to come due to China’s COVID policies, who have been studying with Keats online or offline, who have been in contact with Keats caring about China’s situation, who follow Keats’s social media accounts, and who have passion about China and Chinese language. We can’t thank you enough! Now it’s time to welcome you all to study Chinese at Keats.

From today, Jan 8th, 2023, you can apply for an X2 student visa to come to China. It is not a problem that L tourist visa hasn’t been resumed temporarily yet, because you can apply for an X2 student visa for a Chinese language program that is 1 week to 24 weeks long.

The flight may still be expensive, but it will decrease dramatically as more airlines resume quickly. You can register on our website at, and we will guide you through the next step.

Thank you so much! We appreciate your support and patience! We are so excited and can’t wait to see you in 2023.

Below are the website updates about the visa types that you can apply for from Chinese embassies or visa centers:

Small Group Chinese Class

Before I came to Keats School, I had no confidence in my Chinese proficiency. I did not have the confidence to speak Mandarin Chinese and chat with Chinese people. However, after 4 months of study at Keats, I become more and more confident in speaking Chinese now. Studying Chinese in China at Keats School has been the best decision I have ever made. There are many games in the class, and my teacher’s teaching methods are also very interesting. My experience at Keats School has changed my view of China and Chinese people.

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.

I really had a wonderful experience at the school. The teachers are very very friendly. In my class, we practice speaking, listening, reading, and writing. We play games and other fun activities. We have trips around town. The staff at Keats is phenomenal. My teacher is one of the best teachers I have ever had in my educational experience. She comes in with a smile every day.

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

In the one-to-one intensive Chinese course, you can choose the learning method you like. The small group Chinese class in China at Keats follows the HSK textbook. Teachers often collect feedback from the students, teachers listen to our requirements and opinions. I felt that my oral level is better than before .

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 to rapidly increase your level of Chinese and increase your confidence and fluency with the language.

Small Group Chinese Class

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.

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.

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.
