Learn Chinese in China with Keats School

Go Back

Let’s Feed the Seagulls

There are many places in Kunming that attract tourists from all over the world. Kunming also attracts a group of special guests – seagulls each year, because Kunming is richly endowed by nature and climate. Around 30 years ago, the first group of seagulls from Siberia flew to Kunming in winter and found Kunming to be such a warm place and thus they were reluctant to leave. Since then, seagulls from Siberia spend their winter in Kunming every November. Admiring the seagulls and feeding them have become a kind of welfare to many Kunmingnese. There are several famous seagull gathering places in Kunming. They are the Green Lake located in the city center of Kunming, Daguan Park and Minority Village in the west, and the Dianchi Lake.

Students who learn Chinese in China in the northern part are jealous of students in Kunming because they will not be bothered by the severe cold. By contrast, they can enjoy the beautiful sunshine almost every day in Kunming while they play with the seagulls.

The Dianchi Lake is one of the popular places for outdoor lessons at Keats during the winter. Ms. Yi Lan chose to spend the last day’s lesson at the Dianchi Lake as a gift to her student. Ms. Yi Lan told us that her student studied very hard and learned many Chinese characters in a short time. She was very happy to see the progress her student made in such a short time. Ms. Yi Lan’s student would fly to Beijing on the second day and he was very upset that he would leave Kunming. Ms. Yi Lan took her student to the Dianchi Lake to feel the warm winter before he got hit by the cold weather in Beijing.

The student was very excited to see the seagulls flying back and forth on the lake. Ms. Yi Lan bought some bread for the seagulls and fed them together with her students. After that, they walked along the bank of the lake and appreciated the beauty of the Western Hills. Ms. Yi Lan spent a very special and unforgettable day with her student, who told us that he could come to study at Keats again in the future. There are many interesting places in Kunming, which create many outdoor learning opportunities for Keats students to feel Chinese culture. After we shared Ms. Yi Lan’s outdoor lesson with other students, we received lots of interests in spending a wonderful and relaxed afternoon at the Dianchi Lake with the students and the teachers.

Small Group Chinese Class

The place is very cool. I am with a great group of people in my class, so coming to classes is very enjoyable. It is fun, we have a lot of discussions, games, activities. Our teachers are also very good, very supportive. Learning Chinese is intimidating at the start because you have so many questions. But I would advise coming to Keats because the atmosphere for learning is great. It is very relaxing. I would recommend the school.

I’ve had a really great time here. I’ve studied a lot with my teacher who was fantastic. Keats School tried very hard to match its students with really good teachers that their personality works very well together. I really enjoy studying Chinese at Keats and I will definitely come back.

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

At Keats, I have a lot of opportunities to practice what I have learned. I really like this school, because I can learn Chinese in one-on-one style, so I think this is the best immersion program in China and my teacher is the best teacher. I feel that without my teacher, my Chinese will definitely not improve so much. I’m very happy because, at Keats, I have improved my Chinese significantly.

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

I took the one-on-one Intensive Chinese class for 6 hours a day. The classes are very interesting. The teachers are caring and the content the teacher teaches me is suitable for my level. It is an easy way to learn Mandarin. I have a lot of time practicing Chinese in class. The food is great here. I have improved my Chinese through this program at Keats.

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

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.

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.
