Whether you are a Singaporean who grew up speaking Chinese at home, or have learned Mandarin from scratch at a later age, you’ll recognize that conversing in Chinese and doing business are completely different skills.
Since the language of business and the language of instruction at schools here is in English, we often lack the appropriate Chinese vocab. If you have studied business law, or are working in shipping, you’ll know what the term “FOB Shanghai” means. But what is it in Chinese?
And even if you have grown familiar with industry-specific vocab, direct translations can be deceiving. The Chinese business mind works differently and knowing the Chinese business context can be even more helpful than knowing the right words.
Our business Mandarin course is focused on making business interactions in Mandarin easier. We will cover business Mandarin language and how business is done in China. To give you an idea, here are some topics that are covered:
- How to introduce your company
- Marketing strategy
- Banking, Accounts and finance
- Franchise operations in China
- Human resources
This course is based on a carefully designed curriculum, which we crafted to be relevant to businesspeople with dealings in China. With individual lessons or ultra-small groups of three, we can dive deep into the idiosyncrasies of doing business in China.
