Event description

Description

Anyone with a business interest in this huge market will benefit from our day long Chinese language and culture workshop. This day long beginners course, delivered by a quality assured trainer, will help you to communicate better with your Mandarin speaking counterparts and customers, introducing you to the basics of business Mandarin and giving you an insight into cultural attitudes and behaviours.

What you will learn

You will expand your language and cultural skills with expert tuition, leaving you confident enough to use what you have learnt when you communicate with customers and business partners.

The programme for the day is as follows:
• Overview of basic language: numbers, days of the week, please and thank you, sorry, and 'Do you speak English?' etc.
• Making phone calls.
• Meetings: negotiation, hierarchy, the concept of 'face', and following up.
• Guanxi: the importance of influential relationships in the Chinese business world.
• Eating out: what to expect, how to place your order, and tipping etiquette.
• Drinking: what and how much!

Why attend?

In business, great communication and customer care skills are essential to your success, so exporting to countries where English is not the official language and where cultural norms may be quite different can seem daunting. DIT have years of experience in helping UK exporters overcome the barriers around international communication and our workshops provide a fantastic opportunity to tackle some of these barriers head on.
