Mandarin Schools in Kunming

Does anyone have experience with Kunming Mandarin schools? I want to know if they teach the Beijing dialect or a local variety there. Thanks.

They all teach standard Putonghua, not any local variety and not Beijing dialect.

All the schools teach standard mandarin which is close to the Beijing dialect. I'm told by Chinese people that the Tianjin dialect is closest to the standard. The Kunming dialect is difficult to understand but people speak standard Chinese to foreigners
