Our general courses are a good place to start your Chinese studies, or to improve upon your current skills. They give focused attention to expanding your day-to-day grammar and vocabulary, enabling you to improve your spoken and written Chinese with relative speed and ease. General courses best suit those wishing to improve their Chinese to conversational level, as well as students who hope to continue their Chinese studies to a more advanced level.
As the ideal starting point for a group of people wishing to gain a strong acquaintance with the ins and outs of conversational Chinese, these group classes can be arranged for groups as small as 2 people, and as large as 12 - our only provisos are that the whole class are able to meet at a consistent time and place each week, and are all of the same approximate Chinese level. General courses cover all the grammar and vocabulary you need to gain a practicable advantage in your spoken and written Chinese, and are also an excellent basis for further Chinese study.
Our business courses cater to learners with a decent general knowledge of Chinese but would like to expand their skills for use in the business world. Courses are, as always, completely tailormade for the relevant industry and skill sets (e.g. business correspondence, writing reports etc.). One-to-one business courses are perfect for professionals hoping to develop their current Chinese skills, especially those working for multinational corporations, preparing to work from abroad, or looking for overseas employment.
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.
