As the western world merges with the eastern world, it’s becoming more and more important to have a more stable line of communication. In the past this line of communicating was expressed solely in English. But the times are changing.
As China continues it’s transformation from a closed cocoon like society to an economic butterfly, many people in the western world are taking notice. In order to take part in China’s economic rebirth, and avoid being left behind, many companies in the west are taking steps to find an “edge” in China and in Asia in general. The search for an “edge” in China has forced many corporate minds to realize the importance of learning to communicate in standard Mandarin Chinese. More and more companies are sponsoring on-site classes in Mandarin Chinese as well as basic classes about modern Chinese culture. This is all being done for their preparation and smooth entrance into Chinese markets.
The Chinese language is vastly unlike western languages and the need for a “native Chinese instructor” with a clear understanding of not only the Chinese language, but also western culture is of the highest importance. This is because an instructor with experience in western languages will be more likely to predict pitfalls western learners of Chinese may face. An instructor of this background can then clearly give the person learning Chinese a contrasting view from western culture and terms. However, for those who are always on the go or in areas where access to an instructor is limited, it becomes almost impossible to acquire the training to learn Chinese systematically and, above all, properly.
This is where the World Learner Chinese’s online language training program can make the difficulties of learning the Chinese language a thing of the past. Online courses are designed to give the students a Step-by-Step approach to learning Mandarin Chinese. Not only do students have online access to professionally prepared course materials 24/7, but also scheduled instructor lead classes are lead by teachers who are native Chinese speakers, many of which have a background in western languages or cultures. Instructor lead classes allows the instructor ample time to explain course materials and correct any grammar or pronunciation problem a student may have.
Our virtual classrooms are simultaneously attended by students from all over the world. Free online public forums are available at our web site to anyone who is interested in learning Chinese or about Chinese culture.
