The language school LTL Mandarin School was founded in 2007 by the German Andres Leimbock: in the 2000s, he worked in medical companies in Beijing and at the same time studied the Mandarin dialect. Having mastered the language, Andres helped his friends and colleagues who come to China to learn Chinese. After studying at Chinese language schools for several years, Andres realized that the local language centers lacked an effective organization of the educational process. Then the decision to open your own language school came naturally. The name Live The Language, which has become both the motto of students and teachers, was suggested to Andres by his marketing friend. Andres remains the owner and director of LTL to this day.
