Advanced Business Chinese

Doing business with a Chinese company? Maybe even going to China to work? If you’ve completed the Intermediate Business Chinese course, or have a level equivalent to that, this is where you continue. Because, like our other courses, you’ll be learning with a Chinese teacher living in China, you will get plenty of real life help in understanding and learning to function at a higher level when working with Chines companies and people.

You’ll start with a Free Assessment of Mandarin Chinese level if you’re not already one of our students. As a general guide, we expect you to be higher than HSK 4 level. Your teacher will take either your previous history with us or the results of the Free Assessment into account when planning your course with you - that’s the advantage of our 1:1 courses, the course content will be personalised to suit your individual level and learning goals. 

The agenda for this course is more flexible than most, as it’s intended to take you to a very high level of Mandarin Chinese skills and understanding of the Chinese social and business environments. When the course is set up, we and your teacher will help you to identify the areas that you still need to work on to reach a high level of skill, so that your course will be not only flexible, but designed just for you. 

As you already understand, knowing the language and culture when you’re doing business with a Chinese company or visiting China will give you an advantage. This is true even though English is now the most popular second language in China, so you will meet many Chinese business people who speak good English. With Advanced Mandarin Chinese skills, and a cultural insight to match, you’ll really fit into Chinese business life and social activities..

Not only that, just as in any other country, you’ll be trusted quicker and make friends more easily if you can speak to a new colleague or acquaintance in their language, fluently and correctly, understanding their culture, and not a language that they have learnt so that they can understand you.
