In-company Business Chinese courses

Business Chinese


Course summary

As a Confucius Institute for Business we understand that our clients have busy schedules and cannot always manage to travel to a third location to study. As such, we work with our clients to bring Chinese learning into the companies themselves.

Aims and objectives

Our teaching can be scaled across your company, offering: 

  • Excellent language teaching based on long standing experience in a university environment and in cooperation with Chinese partners
  • A tailored programme for all comapny staff based on the organisation's needs
  • In depth expertise from academic staff in specialist areas
  • Professional courses on inter-cultural issues by academic experts with personal experience
  • Individual design and delivery of courses to suit your needs and times when you are available Outreach programmes delivered across London and England

These programs have been developed by professional Chinese teachers at the CIBL to familiarise participants with the Chinese language, cross-cultural communication, successful negotiation in China and Chinese business culture. Upon successful completion of the programme, participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

Course levels and content

Programmes cover six levels, from beginner to advanced level. CIBL has also developed its own unique teaching and learning materials for London Business communities which consist of Chinese Business Culture and London Business Chinese levels one to six.
