Through learning activities in all aspects of the language—reading, listening, speaking, and writing—students in this course will advance to a higher level of competence, characteristic of formal language style and business terminology. Students will be required to update each topic in the textbook, offering them many opportunities to enhance their knowledge of China’s current economic situation, as well as of Chinese culture. Students will also improve their language learning skills to facilitate further studies. This course requires a demanding load of tasks, but it rewards motivated and dedicated learners.

By the end of the semester, students are expected to be equipped with the advanced language skills to function more comfortably and confidently in real business settings; to have profound cultural awareness about the Chinese business world and to have improved listening comprehension of Chinese business reports and interviews.

Intended Audience:

Students are expected to have had at least three years of successful Chinese studies on a five-hours-per-week basis in a rigid college Chinese program. Native or near-native speakers of Chinese are not eligible for this course.
