LTL Mandarin School Feedback?

Jump to last reply

After plenty to of South East Asia, I decided to finally tackle China this summer. From what I hear it is possible to survive without English, but if I want to speak to the locals I need Mandarin. So I decided to spend the first three weeks in Beijing learning Mandarin to at least get the baiscs in.
I searched the internet and finally found LTL Mandarin School in Beijing. Their website looks professional, they are nice and helpful when replying to emails and I am very close to booking a course. However, I read on their page that they require a 30% pre-payment to book the course.
Now, I have never been to Beijing, nor to that school. Has anyone been there? Are they legit? If I pay them the money now, will they still be there later?

Also, in case anyone has done a course there, any thoughts on homestay/shared apartments or their Chengde option?

Thanks!
