Depending on your level then much of what is covered in a general Chinese course will also be taught on a business course. The key difference, though, is that there is a much greater focus on business related topics. Conducting business in China often requires speakers to know specific business terminology and, importantly in China, specific way of doing things. This cultural awareness training is of great importance when learning business Chinese and will help you to not offend anyone and hopefully secure that big business deal.

At the beginning of your Chinese lessons in London or other location we’ll assess your current language level and we’ll also want to know what your motivation for learning is and whether you have any particular goals. Armed with this information your tutor can build a mandarin course tailored to your needs and estimate how long it will last.
