SUZHOU, China, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) recently launched a range language and business Summer School courses jointly hosted by the University's Language Centre and International Business School Suzhou (IBSS).
The new programs focus on Mandarin Chinese and Chinese and Business and are open to anyone interested in getting to grips with Chinese language or wanting to learn about the business environment in the world's most dynamic economy while also picking up the language as you study.
With a choice of either a two week intensive course, or a month long option from 7th July to 15th August, participants will get the chance to learn and practice their language skills in a dedicated, professional environment, supported by experienced and fully certified teaching staff.
Those who complement their language studies with an introduction to Chinese Business will benefit from specialized training from IBSS professors who can guide students through four main areas of interest: The Chinese Economy, Understanding the Chinese Consumer, The Internet Boom – China Style and Entrepreneurial Opportunities in China.
