Abstract China's colleges and corporations are both evolving rapidly, so Western visitors who want to go with the flow in classrooms or offices need to be well-equipped, language-wise. This program helps beginning Chinese speakers express how pleased they are to make an acquaintance, apologize for being late to a meeting, describe what subjects they're studying in school, explain where they're from, identify what they do for a living or what position they hold in a company, and much more. Cultural topics include: life on a university campus, Beijing's booming business community, and the lives of garment industry factory workers.
