Standard Group Courses in General Chinese

Our Chinese group courses are targeted for sets of 2-12 people, all of whom have the same requirements from learning Chinese. Everybody should be at about the same level at the start of the course, and the entire group should be able to meet at the same time and place each week. Grammar and vocabulary form the backbone of the general course, helping the student gain fluency in conversational topics whilst increasing their overall working Chinese knowledge. For groups who wish to engage in further Chinese study, the general course is an excellent starting point.

Standard Group Courses in Business Chinese

Group business Chinese courses are intended for small groups (of 2 to 12 students) who already have a working knowledge of Chinese, and want to extend their skills in the arena of business language. Your group should have approximately the same level of Chinese, whether that be intermediate, upper intermediate, or advanced. You should all be available at the same time every week, and have complementary learning aims. Your trainer will develop your course around your group's language goals and particular field of business, and can incorporate any specific areas of focus, such as improving negotiation or presentation skills. Group business language courses are suitable for a wide range of organisations, including multinational companies, and those whose employees require a higher level of Chinese to develop international business relationships.

Birmingham facts

Widely regarded as the UK's "second city" (and the largest of the UK's 8 "core cities"), Birmingham's reputation came into its own during the Industrial Revolution, leading to nicknames for the city such as The Workshop of the World. The city these days has a population of just over 1,000,000 people, but is more concerned with the service sector than following its history as a centre of manufacturing and engineering - though the many museums are still there to boast its rich heritage. Birmingham boasts a recorded history that goes back 1,000 years, growing from a small farming village into a huge commercial and industrial city.
