XLevel
Learning Mandarin Chinese is not easy, we all need to study step by step.
XLevel: Our unique system for easily evaluating student growth, is different from the HSK, but also connected. The XLevel test (available when you arrive at our campus) has detailed grading and multiple study paths all leading to level up, so that you can see growth after every effort.

China VISA

If you are do not live in China, then you need a visa entry approved by the PRC Foreign Ministry. You are encouraged to get a tourist visa (L) or a student visa (X2) depending on the length of your stay. A tourist visa (L) is recommended for students who are staying less than 2 months. The student visa (X2) is available for students who study longer than 2 months, for this visa you will also receive some information and documents from us.

If you are eligible for a Chinese Visa, XMandarin can help you get it, with as little trouble as possible. During the enrollment process, let us know if you need visa help or have any questions and we will be of service. Of course, you are also welcome to apply by yourself, but please try to start your visa application as early as possible.

Good To Know
Although the regular visa processing time takes only about a week, it's best to apply two to three months in advance, before your study program starts. This will give you ample time to search for and purchase a cheaper flight ticket. Flight tickets tend to be more expensive when purchased close to the flight date.
