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.

MEET THE CHEF

Jaq's Story at Keats The Inspiration of Chinese Tea

OVER 7300+ STUDENTS HAVE STUDIED AT KEATS

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.

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.

Our class is really nice and we have people from all over the world, different countries. We often discuss topics in Chinese in our class. I live in the dorm of Keats. It is very convenient. I don’t have to spend time traveling. You can just focus on learning Chinese.

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.

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

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.

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.
