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:

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

They really care about what our interests are, what questions we have, what requirements we have. Then they adjust our Chinese language program content according to the situations. One teacher and one student, so it is easy to keep your focus for the 6 hours of immersion Mandarin lessons. It is very convenient to study, live and eat in one building.

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.

Small Group Chinese Class

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 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.

The teachers at Keats know how to read the students and how to help students learn Chinese language easily. They know the level of the students. I am a slow learner, but they managed to adapt to my learning. They made the class very fun, very exciting. I am pleased that not only I got to learn the culture and the language, but I also got to make amazing friends, really unbelievable, Chinese friends and European friends, American friends, from all over the world.

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.

Emiliano | Mexico

Small Group Chinese Class

I come to Kunming because I think the environment in Kunming is better and I heard that Keats School is better. I like the small group Chinese class because my classmates study hard and our teachers are very good. I like the teaching method of Keats because I like the activities at Keats. I think Yunnan is a particularly beautiful Chinese province.
