Business culture training for China

Lingualearn Chinese business training


Lingualearn provides tailor-made training for individuals and companies.  This training consists of many different elements:

  • general information on the target culture & stereotypes
  • information on the culture of business in the target country 
  • business etiquette
  • information on how businesses are organised in the target country
  • useful books, guides, films and websites
  • culture and cultural differences
  • culture shock
  • language and culture, registers, appropriateness, accents, dialects
  • cultural self-awareness
  • linguistic and paralinguistic issues, e.g. eye contact, handshakes, proxemics and body language
  • we can also add a language component of survival skills in the target language and useful phrases
  • another possible component is to add information on the target country and region


Lingualearn's business culture training is ideal for executives on the move and international business travellers who wish to find one easy way of preparing themselves for Chinese culture.  As the information and advice can be given by distance means, it is a very flexible service which can be delivered by email, fax, telephone, mail or internet to nearly any location worldwide. The most effective method, however, is to use blended training: a combination of face-to-face and distance techniques.

Why is Chinese business training important?

Good communications are essential for a successful business anywhere.  Good international communications with foreign partners, suppliers, clients and employees can contribute to excellent relationships, confidence, understanding and goodwill.  Failure to take into account linguistic and cultural differences can lead to lost business via misunderstandings, errors, culture shock, suspicion, bad will and poor relationships. The physical distance between China and Western countries accentuates the risk - good understanding of conducting business in China can lead to increased competitiveness and success.

Prices for Chinese business culture courses

Approximate costs are as follows:
a self-study pack of information and advice presented in English costs ~750 per person per location, face-to-face training costs ~ 400 per delegate per day, plus 75 per hour per person for the language tuition (optional). We have a Training Centre in Shoreham, West Sussex. These fees include course materials and refreshments. The courses can be presented in many different formats and adapted for special needs, e.g. the visually impaired, children etc. Catering for special needs will inevitably increase the price of the package - quotations on request. The training can start before departure and continue while you are abroad.
For in-company courses, the fee is ~400 per person plus travel and accommodation costs (if applicable) with a minimum requirement of 5 attendees.

The above prices exclude VAT and hotel/travel expenses where necessary.
