Frequently Asked Questions
Are all classes one to one?
Yes and this is important when taking our business Chinese class. Every individual has very specific needs when you study business Mandarin. From your working trade, day to day contact, level of Chinese and so forth. This requires very specifically tailored classes and therefore one to one classes are absolutely essential. This is beneficial in the long run as your progress will be quicker.
Do I need any prior knowledge of Chinese to take this course?
No matter what your level of Chinese you are welcome to join this program. The 1 to 1 nature of the classes means everything will be tailored to your needs allowing for maximum flexibility.
How do you tailor the classes to suit me?
Before you begin the course we “assess” your current ability no matter what your level. This way it gives us an idea of where you are currently at with your Chinese. We’ll also discuss with you, your current employment, your industry and contact with colleagues. We put all this together to create a study plan to suit you whether you work in Finance or Marketing, rest assured you’ll be learning the most relevant Mandarin material to you.
How quickly can I achieve my goals?
This is very much dependant on how much you put in. If you neglect to learn any Chinese outside of class, then it’ll take you a lot longer to get to where you want. Practice as much as possible. Keep in contact with Chinese people and speak Chinese at every given opportunity.
Do you issue Fapiaos
Absolutely. It’s worth noting Chinese Tax regulations are very complicated. You should inform us who the fapiao is for before you start your Chinese Business Course. Another thing of note is that Chinese fapiaos can be issued to companies with a Chinese name only. That said, a standard invoice and receipt can be issued at a later date to any business you wish.
So I learn business Chinese, but will I be able to expand my Mandarin further?
Although the program is aimed at improving your business contact with Chinese colleagues, the course is much more than that. Your teacher will introduce you to Chinese culture and your general Mandarin language skills will improve. You’ll be able to use this outside of the office as well as in.
I think I need more flexibility. Can you help?
Yes we can! We have a number of part time courses and the Super Flexible Program, might be exactly what you are looking for.
