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.

  • New students dormitory and classroom are put into use this summer

You can enjoy free high-speed WIFI in your room. Every student can enjoy one time of free room cleaning service every week.  A full set of room service is also available if required.

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

I have been to Keats School to learn Chinese for 4 times now. The reason for coming back to this school is pretty much that the teachers I did work with were very good Chinese teachers. I make it a 5-year plan or even a 10-year plan to come back to this school.  All the teachers have methods of looking at what your skills are. They are aware of at what level you are. I think it is worth for everyone.

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.

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

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.

I really enjoy studying Chinese in Kunming at Keats. The teachers are great and my classmates are awesome. It is an unforgettable experience for me. I also got the chance to travel to other places in Yunnan. Those places are amazing and you definitely need to visit these places when you study Chinese in China at Keats.

Intensive One on One Chinese Classes

I’ve been at Keats school and Kunming now for one month doing the one-on-one Chinese lessons with two different teachers. I really enjoy it. Both of my teachers are very friendly and patient. They really helped me to improve my Chinese, both of my reading and speaking. I really enjoy studying Chinese in Kunming as well. This city is really beautiful and the weather is nice, the air is clean. It’s one of the best cities in China to study Chinese.
