Talk Business Mandarin
Based on the large market of international trade between the United States, China & Taiwan, this course is designed for everyone who is interested in studying business conversation in Mandarin Chinese. All three levels of "Talk Business Mandarin" are covered in one year with the emphasis on business conversation. "Talk Business Mandarin I" is a sixteen week online course for beginners to someone who has a basic Mandarin skill. Class meets online on Thursdays, 7:00 - 8:40pm, and Saturdays, 12:00 - 1:40 pm, using the "Startup Business Chinese" textbook. Each class is divided into two sections: the first fifty minutes is learning the content of the textbook, followed by a ten-minute break and then forty minutes of hands-on-experience on conversational practices with each other. This course requires bold actions in language practices, a "having fun" learning attitude, analytical skills, and serious studies. Loving a challenge is a plus for seeing more effective and successful learning outcomes!
