Learn Chinese in China with Keats School

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:

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

I decided to learn Chinese in Kunming because I like smaller cities and I like the climate here. We had four hours a day study here and my dear teacher taught me very much and never lost her patience with me. It was a really wonderful experience to be here and I recommend Keats school and the teachers here to everyone who likes to learn Chinese in China.

I really enjoy this place because we have private Mandarin lessons. I took the 6-hour program, 4 hours in the morning, 2 in the afternoon. Even though it is quite a lot, the teaching is complimentary. This is very helpful because I could review what I did before and learn new things. My 2 teachers are fantastic. We live in the school, so it is convenient. It is interesting to me to meet people from all over the world.

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 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.

It is very convenient to come to Kunming from Thailand. I really like my Chinese class and my Chinese improved a lot in a few months. There are many benefits of learning Chinese. The best thing I like about Keats is that it is in Kunming, a city with eternal spring. There is so much to see in Kunming and you will love this city after you come.

I have to say it’s tons of fun. I have been here for 2 weeks. Not knowing what it was gonna be like, I was more than surprised at how great it is. The teachers are great, they are understanding. They do a Chinese language program that suits just you. The location is perfect for learning Chinese in China.

The visa application was really straightforward, because Keats School helps us a lot with that. Keats has a big emphasis on conversational practice, so we learn a lot of vocabulary and daily life plans which is very convenient for us to go around town and speak with Chinese people which is the whole point of learning Chinese in China.
