Don’t miss this unique opportunity to start developing your Putonghua skills and speak the same language as China’s 1.3 billion potential customers



The Putonghua (Mandarin) Foundation Course is for very busy people in business and their partners who want to learn to speak useful Putonghua within a short period of time; people who have little or no Putonghua at all and want to speak appropriate, educated, business Putonghua in a variety of different situations, both social and work-related.

The Course is a modern approach to the learning of Putonghua. The Course will provide an understanding of the structure of Putonghua based on participants’ knowledge of the structure of English.

It does not start with the repetition of the tones of Putonghua in isolation from communication. It is a more effective method to start with understanding the basic grammatical structures of Putonghua; then all you need to do is "slot in” the vocabulary. You pick up the tones as you practise the language in "real-life” situations just as the complexities of intonation, stress, rhythm, tone and pronunciation are gradually mastered and improved in any language.

The Course focuses on equipping participants with the necessary language skills to cope with a series of common situations in their business and social lives such as Making Introductions in Social and Business Situations, Asking for and Providing Information, Leaving Phone Messages, and Arranging Appointments. It also provides ways to communicate with Chinese people so that they will respond warmly to you and choose the most precise and polite Putonghua for use in effective daily communication: also how to avoid "faux pas” in Putonghua!
