Business Chinese Language Courses


OVERVIEW

Jointly with Belgian-Chinese Chamber of Commerce (BCECC), we successfully launched our first and second live online Beginners’ Business Chinese (BBC) courses in September 2020 and January 2021 respectively. We have been helping two excellent cohorts of learners.

 

To help learners who have learned pinyin and already known approximately 250 words, especially the learners who finished our Stage 2 of BBC, we are offering a Stage 3 course from April 19 to June 25, 2021. Both members and non-members of BCECC, both current participants and learners knowing pinyin and having mastered 250 basic words are welcomed to join.
