“Excellent course!” – A. Skalman, on amazon.co.uk
“This course is all about improving your vocabulary of business words and phrases in Mandarin Chinese. It will help you to learn relevant and modern business language. No grammar is taught, so if you are a beginner, or if you need a refresher course, you may like to try Teach Yourself Mandarin Chinese first.
The package contains: 3 x audio CDs, a 96-page booklet containing the transcript in pinyin of the recorded material for ease of learning, and a glossary of all the vocabulary from the course, and a 144-page culture book. You do not need to have the books with you when listening to the CDs, so you can listen to the CDs anywhere.
The Culture book is divided into 3 sections: the first section gives facts and figures about China and other mandarin-speaking countries. The second section provides invaluable information about Chinese culture to enable you to work more effectively in the Chinese business environment. The third section contains reference material to help you find out more, plus a toolkit to help you produce your own business cards, write letters and e-mails in Mandarin Chinese. This is the only part that provides any vocabulary in Chinese characters.
Sarah Carroll and Qiufu Wang have provided an admirable service to anyone wanting to learn business Mandarin Chinese. It is clear that an awful lot of thought, planning and experience has gone into producing this course and I cannot praise it highly enough.”
I look forward to hearing from you.
