Updates about Keats School and Recent COVID Situation

Hi! All Keats students and followers, we hope you have been doing well in 2021. How time flies! It’s already in the middle of the year. Let’s have a look at some updates about Keats School and also news about the COVID situation here in Kunming Yunnan together!

  • Keats School is still running properly and normally

Though there are limitations of parts of the after-class activities in the school and our branch locations, all of our language programs are open for registration and running normally as usual in Kunming, the headquarter.

Yunnan province is not affected by the COVID-19 situation over the Guangdong area. People are still living a normal life here and all social activities are running as usual.

All Mandarin learners are very welcome to enrol in our language course, including the Intensive One-on-one Chinese program, Small Group Chinese Class (the only session of small group class for beginners this summer, duration limited from July 4th to 31st), HSK test preparation courses, online Chinese lesson, customized Chinese program, Children Chinese program, Study + Tour program and Study + Volunteer program. These language programs are all open for application.

Especially in this coming summer vacation, we will welcome a group of students to enjoy a relaxing summer language program at the same time.

If you’re working in China currently and you’re looking for a cooler place for summer vacation, you cannot miss the chance of visiting Kunming Yunnan and study Mandarin Chinese at Keats School.

  • There is not only high-quality Chinese course but also amazing touring destinations

Kunming is the provincial capital city of Yunnan province that boasts the mildest climate in China during the summer season. By learning Chinese in Kunming, you can get rid of scorching heat and high humidity.

Countless famous touring attractions here are waiting for your exploration after completing the study plan. Dali, Lijiang, Shangri-La, Tengchong, Puzhehei, Stone Forest, Jianshui, Yuanyang and Xishuangbanna, etc. Trips in these destinations allow you experience both amazing landscapes and various ethnic minority groups’ culture in Yunnan.

By studying Chinese at Keats School and travelling in Yunnan, you will definitely love and enjoy your time here and might be coming back again in the future.

Keats School is always dedicated to providing the most comfortable learning environment for all Keats Students.

We’re ready to bring the best Mandarin learning experience for you. How about you?

  • Updates about the student visa application

At the moment, China is still very careful about visa issuing.

Only international employees who are required to back to China for resuming working or business can apply for a valid visa such as a working visa and business visa.  The border will not be open until most Chinese people get vaccinated. That is to say, there is a great possibility when over 1 billion of the Chinese population have vaccinated successfully (approximately equal to 2 billion doses of the vaccination), the border could reopen and international students may apply for a student visa again.

As of June 8th, 2021, China has reported a total of 80,8962,000 doses of the new coronavirus vaccine. And it is estimated that the goal of 2 billion doses of the vaccination can be completed at the end of the year. At Keats School, all of our teachers and staff have completed two doses of vaccines. We are working on helping our international students to have vaccination as well if they are willing to take the Chinese vaccine.

The earliest possible time to come to China might be early next year when the winter Olympics will be held in China.

We are excited about what we achieved in the past several months and also looking forward to the rest months of this year. Since the outbreak of COVID-19 last year, many of us have experienced a tough time, but we all survived and we got it through eventually.

Keats School will get fully ready to bring the top-quality Chinese course to our students as always do. No matter where you come from, who you are, only if you’re passionate about learning Chinese and studying Chinese culture, you will be always welcome to join the elite Mandarin community of Keats School!

We will be here for you!

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.

Small Group Chinese Class

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.

Nicholas | Canada

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.

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.

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.

Intensive One on One Chinese Classes

My name is Sarah Fish. I am 81. I knew very little Chinese when I arrived. How was I going to survive 2 weeks of intensive Chinese course? I have to laugh when I think of that now. What a positive experience this has been! I really wish we could be here a little longer. The teachers are extremely encouraging, evaluating first how much someone knows, and then starting from there.

Mike | Australia

Small Group Chinese Class

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.

Small Group Chinese Class

I really enjoy coming here because it is like kind of a home for me. It is a great environment to learn Mandarin Chinese in China and meet great people from all over the world. Everyone here is extremely friendly. Kunming has a really nice climate. It is a very good mix of the modern city and also a lot of historic Chinese culture. Probably got the cleanest air in China and possibly the cleanest water too. I invite you to come to study Chinese in Kunming.
