Crystal Learning unlike traditional school uses a "tutorial" approach to learning.
Yi Mandarin runs the lesson in tutorial style for a higher quality learning experience. Class conducted in tutorial style is more interactive and specific than a lecture. We teach by using real examples and scenarios.
Teaching and learning in tutorial classes allows student an opportunity to negotiate meanings, express themselves in the language of the subject, and to establish more intimate contact with the trainer teaching the class than more formal methods permit. It also enables them to develop the advanced skills of listening and communicating with native speakers.
Role play will be one of the key component in class to allow student to practice speaking and listening. This will give confidence to the student when they come across any situation outside the class.

What they say
This course has helped me to better understand Chinese business culture, and made me realise a number of mistakes I’ve made over the years, such as conducting business over the phone (a big no!) and the subtle art of gifting. Thank you Mina!
The course is very useful for me. Being Chinese, I initially thought very highly of myself until I went to China and got a rude shock. Reading their faces, what's that? I learned in the course that the Chinese won't say no to you, and you need to read their facial expressions! I wasted too much time doing absolutely nothing and ended up owing too much Guanxi "credit". This is an overall good course for anyone who wishes to venture into the 1.5 billion people Chinese market.
"You are tasked to develop the Chinese market. This may include hiring, approaching banks for collateral, ”business presentations to prospective customers or negotiating a better deal." You are ready to do all that in English in a ruled based world designed by the West, but are you ready to embark on an entirely different world based on Guanxi?
The course is suitable for people with business opportunities in China who need to use Mandarin in a formal business setting.
The 32 hours programme aims to help managers acquire essential business Mandarin communication skills and cultural knowledge, which are especially important for doing business in China.
Lessons are conducted with materials from the prestigious Peking University. The topics are wide-ranging, from franchise operations to human resources management, compiled and arranged in a progressive sequence.
The class activities are learner-centric, and incorporate real world scenarios. Besides our textbook, additional materials will be provided according to students' needs.
