WHY DINE AT KEATS

Adjusting the authentic Chinese food into a more healthy Way

Authentic Chinese Cuisine: Keats Cafeteria uses fresh produce to prepare delicious Chinese food with top-quality oil. Keats students enjoy eating at Keats Cafeteria as it is a place to meet other students studying Chinese and to get to know the Keats teachers.

FRESH INGREDIENTS

Organic, root-to-stem dining

Inspired by Yunnan minority cuisine and crafted in accordance with the earth’s natural rhythms, Keats Cafeteria believes healthy dining is critical to your Mandarin Chinese language course in China. This can keep you energized. We use fresh meat and vegetables and maintain five-star hygiene standards.

AVAILABLE CHOICES FOR VEGETARIANS

Earnest, approachable cooking in a modern way

Yunnan is famous for its plant variation. There are a great number of green vegetables that can only be found in Yunnan. We offer 3 to 4 options for vegetarians each meal. You can enjoy the art of vegetarian cuisine from a remote part of China.

CONVERSATION WITH OTHER STUDENTS

A Chinese-Only table for you to practice your Chinese

Keats Cafeteria is the best place to meet other students and widen your social network when you learn Chinese in China. It is also a good opportunity to practice your Chinese with Keats teachers during meal times. In order to get the most out of the intensive immersion Chinese program, we have Chinese-Only tables where you can only speak Chinese during meal times. This forces you to immerse yourself in a pure Chinese language environment.

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 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.

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

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.

It doesn’t matter what level of Chinese you have, or even you can start from the zero level. Your teacher will prepare the lessons according to your requirements. The advantage of living in the school is that you will have your tutoring, you will have your private accommodation with your own bathroom and all the meals provided. I highly recommend everybody to actually take the whole package because you get to meet other students.

Filbert | Indonesia

Small Group Chinese Class

Before I came to Keats School, I had no confidence in my Chinese proficiency. I did not have the confidence to speak Mandarin Chinese and chat with Chinese people. However, after 4 months of study at Keats, I become more and more confident in speaking Chinese now. Studying Chinese in China at Keats School has been the best decision I have ever made. There are many games in the class, and my teacher’s teaching methods are also very interesting. My experience at Keats School has changed my view of China and Chinese people.

I’ve had an amazing time at Keats. I am amazed at how much I’ve learned over the last 3 weeks and I will be really sad to go. We are already planning on our next trip of coming back because we had such a fantastic time here. They really tailor the Chinese language course to you and your individual needs.

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.
