Aims and objectives

Guided research

A reading list and research materials will be sent to all the trainees immediately after the completion of their registration. Trainees are required to do some preparation and research regarding Business Chinese teaching in order to fully prepare for the intensive training course.

Intensive training

Online learning forum

This is an online website specially designed for trainees and CIBL alumni which provides a platform for discussion and the sharing of teaching experience. Furthermore, CIBL experts will regularly email alumni various new and updated teaching materials as well as information about forthcoming events and all alumni will benefit from long-term ongoing support. Upon successful completion of the course reference letters may be obtained from CIBL to help with job hunting.
