"This class was very well organised - covering many essential items for any professional keen to quickly understand the ettiquette of doing business in China, and the technical naunces of the Mandarin language in the business context .
Although the class is scheduled for 3 hours on a monday evening, I never found it tiring and would look forward to find out more every week.
The teacher was very engaging and took initiative to help us make the materials relevant to our work. 
There were some exercises and subjects that were very tough - but she always made it a point to explain it all very well."
 -- Esther Wong

I have benefited from this workshop and all-ready to share what I have learned at my workplace."
