Corporate Mandarin Programs that build teams and communication skills

Having now provided Chinese language programs to over 60 companies and embassies over the past 15 years we have learned that one organisation’s needs can be different from those of other organisations. Getting a Corporate Mandarin Program that is tailored to your organisation is the best way to make sure you hit your objectives.

Here are just a few of the ways in which you can use Mandarin language programs to build better communication in your workplace.

Executive Training
If a person has come from overseas to work in your organisation, it is important that they have all the tools they need to succeed.  Individual, one-on-one training, can be specifically tailored to the needs of your organisation and the role that an individual will have in the team.  This means the Mandarin vocabulary, teaching method and intensity of learning can all be specifically developed.

Example: We were contacted by the HR Manager from a large car manufacturing company.  They had a new sales manager arriving in Beijing and it was important that this person could communicate with Chinese clients. We helped this company and their new person by giving him intensive business lessons every weekday. After just 2 months he achieved the goals that he had set and could communicate the information he needed to with Chinese clients.

Group Lessons
If you have an intake of new foreign staff, or would like to up skill current staff, then we can put together a program that will help them integrate into your Beijing work environment.  Run either on-site at your location or off-site, group lessons are custom designed to make sure your foreign workmates have the necessary language to communicate what they need to in Chinese.  We can build lesson content, timetables and learning materials to suit the outcomes that are needed.

Example: An international telecommunication company has an ongoing program for providing Mandarin language training to their new staff.  Every 3 months this company sends a new group of employees to our school for lessons.  These lessons are 3 times per week and 2 hours long each time. This provides these staff, who are to new to China, with the language they need to live their daily lives.

Onsite Language School
We are able to offer a part-time or full-time language school at your organisation’s location.  This means that the HR team or individuals within your organisation can schedule individual or group lessons with more flexibility.

Example: We established a training program for an international financial company with a Beijing office.  We provided a highly qualified teacher who spent 3 days a week at the company’s office teaching a range of staff. Every 3 months the teacher provided a report about the students’ Chinese level, study plan, study time and performance to the company’s USA headquarters. This formal review process was agreed at the start of the program and proved to be very useful.
