About Speakeasy Language Center

Speakeasy was founded in Lijiang by a Chinese man from Xian, and an American man from New York City. Their goal was to create a top quality Chinese retreat, where people could not only study Chinese, but also enjoy the beautiful scenery, sights, and atmosphere of Lijiang. And so they created not just a place with modern classrooms, but with great food, clean and comfortable guest rooms, a relaxing bar and courtyard, and much more, right beside the quiet gardens of Black Dragon Pond.

At Speakeasy we offer a variety of Chinese classes and experiences, including:

  •   Weekly Chinese classes for local students
  •   Virtual online classes on QQ and Skype 
  •   Chinese camps for students during the spring and summer holidays
  •   Chinese tour services for visitors to Lijiang
  •   Guest services, including food and drinks, dormitory rooms for young students and travelers, and private guest rooms for adults
  •   and much more...
