General Mandarin Chinese courses can be to the advantage of anybody, whether you are a rank beginner or already have some experience of the tongue. By focusing on grammar and vocabulary skills, Listen & Learn's general courses are perfect to develop your fluency in speaking, listening and reading everyday Mandarin Chinese. They are perfect for those who want to start making their Mandarin Chinese work for them, and a great precursor to a business course.
Our Mandarin Chinese group courses are targeted for sets of 2-12 people, all of whom have the same requirements from learning Mandarin 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 Mandarin Chinese knowledge. For groups who wish to engage in further Mandarin Chinese study, the general course is an excellent starting point.
With our one-to-one Mandarin Chinese business courses, you can develop your current Mandarin Chinese skills to incorporate them effortlessly into your job - perfect for those employed by multinational organisations, moving abroad to work, or in search of employment overseas. Lessons are designed around your sector of industry and field of work, and tutors can aid learners in improving individual skills required by your role, such as giving presentations, writing reports or composing formal written correspondence.
These business Mandarin Chinese courses are aimed at groups of 2 to 12 people who already have a fair working Mandarin Chinese knowledge, who wish to convert this knowledge to practicable business use. So long as all members of the group are at the same level of Mandarin Chinese at the start of the course, and are able to meet for each class at a pre-arranged time and place, then the classes will be of great benefit to all involved. Business courses will generally focus on the field or industry in question, incorporating related vocabulary and improving appropriate skills, such as writing reports, formal business correspondence or giving a presentation.
Specific purposes Mandarin Chinese courses are a great boon to people who have already studied Mandarin Chinese and wish to develop certain facets of their Mandarin Chinese skills. This can include an array of helpful guidance, including the following:
