CHIN 2100 - Business Chinese

This course is designed to introduce students to various aspects of Chinese business culture and to provide basic business Chinese training. By linking the relationship between business culture and business language, this course will equip students with basic language skills and knowledge to do business in Chinese speaking countries and areas or with Chinese companies. Topics such as the following will be studied: the first business meeting; business negotiation; business connection; signing a contract; shipping and handling; and foreign trade corporations. We will emphasize communicative activities, and combine the language training with the introduction of Chinese business culture. Although students have different language background, all students are required to make a good faith effort to speak the target language at every relevant opportunity. It is our goal to use as much Chinese as possible while participating in this program. By the end of the course, students should be able to actively participate in basic business conversations.

Credits: 3 hours

Notes: This course satisfies General Education Proficiency 4: Foreign Languages.
