An ability to speak Mandarin and an understanding of Chinese culture breaks down barriers when you work with Chinese people and companies in China or the UK.

As a business-focussed Confucius Institute, our work around language and culture has a strong emphasis on applying that knowledge for business purposes.

Our main focus is on helping businesses to communicate with Chinese customers more effectively, and working with our partners and business network to share China-related business insights drawn from research and real-life experience. For those of you studying Mandarin, we offer Business Chinese training and the Business Chinese Test (BCT).
