China, with a population of almost 1.5 billion, is a key market for many.
Although many Chinese people speak English or French, learning Standard Mandarin is a good option, even if the only goal is to show your Chinese colleagues that you are interested in their culture.
Standard Mandarin is a rich and very different language from English or French. It's a language with four different intonations, and it is linked to the symbols that compose the written language. For this language, we give private lessons unless your company has a group of people wanting to learn together.
As soon as we cover the basics, we start including vocabulary from your work environment. This aspect is very personalized in private lessons, a little less for group courses of the same company and finally, public group courses will have workplace vocabulary, but it will be more general to meet the needs of learners having different backgrounds.
For all of our training programs, the first step is always an oral evaluation. This test is done by phone or videoconference by an experienced teacher. It will place each student in our grid of 10 levels. Depending on how advanced the learners are, the test can last from 15min to 20min.
With this result, we can have the training objectives specific to your level, and we will provide them to the paying entity.
Each of our levels is 45 hours in duration. Once completed, a document is provided, specifying the level reached and the mastery of the principal objectives.
Our approach has been developed over almost 30 years of providing training to people/companies like you. Whatever your training need, we are here to support you, from beginning to end.
