The Business Chinese courses are highly customized, theoretically the class would spend 30% of the time study “NEWS OF THE WEEK” covering a wide range of political, economic, business and social news globally.

The main 50% of the course would be spent on learning articles covering organised topics, for example, you might be shown insights of the Chinese government structure, stories of the business tycoons and their companies in China, or news of booming sectors or interesting start-ups, or the stock market and property market.

Further 20% of the time would be based on students’ project work, ie case study analysis, case research, presentations, the most effective way of training students to be confident in expressing themselves in business contexts.
