Learn Arts and Culture
What is China and how do we relate to it? With a unique teaching combination of Chinese Mandarin basics, history and business-related subjects, we will explore different socio-cultural aspects that can support you in your business decisions, communication approach and intercultural awareness.
As a European that lived in different geographic and social areas in China, I can offer a special vision and interpretation on how language, history and cultural dimensions influence the evolution of business, as well as people's behaviors in an international context. How Chinese see us? What they expect from us? Why do we have some specific stereotypes about China and why they are untrue? Supported by concrete figures and analysis, the lessons will open a window on the China's world.
Each program is customized according to student's requests and necessities.
