Chinese is a critical language for all global organizations. This Mandarin for Business program offered by EdX in collaboration with MandarinX features a thorough basic and intermediate Chinese virtual learning experience at your own pace!
In this Mandarin for Business Professional Certificate program, we integrate your Chinese learning experiences from basics, such as tones, pinyin, grammar, characters, and basic structures to advanced knowledge. We provide a solid learning system that is essential for beginners to differentiate and construct sentences, and then use them in real life, workplace and business scenarios.
After you’ve gained basic knowledge in more than 18 scenarios, you will advance to a business Chinese course that will offer you the opportunity apply the Mandarin language skills you have gained in real-world business scenarios.
Drawing from the skills you’ve developed in the Basic Mandarin courses in this series, you will learn how to address yourself more properly in different circumstances, which is especially useful for networking and negotiating with business partners, contract signing and maintaining a business relationship.
For all courses, we use videos that include everyday conversations to let students learn the most practical Chinese. We also offer slides and audio supplements for sentences and phrases to get you familiar with different intonation and pronunciation.
In addition to 40 lessons, you will have the opportunity to participate in instructor-led webinars with MandarinX founder and linguistic specialist Dr. Estella Y. Chen, who will lead discussion groups around a variety of popular themed business topics, common in Chinese corporations.
By the end of this series, you will gain essential vocabulary and grammar skills for daily conversations and applicable Chinese business language skills.Job Outlook
