USE THIS APP TO HELP LEARN BUSINESS CHINESE

If you read our last blog post, we talked about our 8 tips for learning Mandarin. If you made it to the very end, you would have read that we mentioned an online tool that we recommend to all Keats students.

But, what is this tool and why do we recommend it?

In this blog post, we’re sharing with you why we love The Chairman’s Bao and what the benefits are when it comes to learning business Mandarin.

WHAT IS THE CHAIRMAN’S BAO

The Chairman’s Bao is a comprehensive online Chinese news-based graded reader for students. At Keats, we recommend our students to use this app in addition to their intensive one-on-one studies.

Keats students are able to learn business Chinese through TCB courses because they deliver high-quality reading, learning and teaching materials through news-based lessons.

This means the app caters to the needs of the individual, just like Keats does. We recommend this app because they have the same standard when it comes to Mandarin language learning.

We wouldn’t recommend anything that we wouldn’t use ourselves or share with our students.

WHY SHOULD I USE THIS APP?

TCB was created by students, for students. It’s full of news articles that are used as a method of learning business Mandarin. These articles are written by native Chinese speakers and each lesson states the targeted HSK level. It also includes grammatical explanations, idiomatic phrases, keywords and spoken audio to help you out.

We suggest that our students use this app in addition to intensive one-on-one lessons because it’s added knowledge. As we previously said in a blog post, we recommend that for every hour you spend in a Keats classroom, you spend an hour studying business Chinese on your own. Opening this app on your phone or laptop is an easy way to clock in that extra hour.

In order to make sure that all Keats students achieve perfect learning result, we incorporate modern learning styles and materials in the intensive one-on-one course. TCB is FREE to all Keats on-site students who choose the intensive one-on-one Chinese program. If you come to study at Keats, you will have FREE access to the TCB when you study Chinese in China at Keats.

AFFORDABLE SUBSCRIPTION PLANS

TCB is a paid subscription service for Mandarin learning. The app offers pricing plans for both individuals and schools. One sample lesson per HSK level is always unlocked to unpaid users. They also offer trials.

At Keats, it won’t cost you a dime to use this technology. Like we said above, you’ll achieve free access to this once you arrive at Keats to study.

EFFICIENT APPLICATION – EASY TO USE

Last but not least, it’s important to pick the right app for you. There are so many apps and software out there to pick from when it comes to studying business Chinese. However, you need to be able to tell which one is efficient and will work the best for you.

Through our experience at Keats, this app has worked the best for our students. We hear our students talking about the benefits that TCB has given them and when they come to class at Keats, we can tell they’ve been studying business Mandarin on their own.

Plus, The Chairman’s Bao has a user-friendly interface, which makes learning business Chinese easy.

TRUST US – USE TCB AND COME TO KEATS

It has been notable because I have met a lot of people who I met first time last year like me to come back to Keats this year. The teaching has been fantastic. The teachers carefully prepare each lesson. I think this one-on-one approach is really a great way perhaps anyway to rapidly increase your level of Chinese and increase your confidence and fluency with the language.

All my classmates stay together for one year and we improved so much! The teachers are all very great. They like to organize a lot of activities to help us learn Chinese.

So during my first week at Keats, I didn’t dare to speak any Chinese words. I found out that my Chinese level quickly improved since then. Although I have many options to study in China, for example some other schools have homestay, I found I could immerse myself and fully focus on learning Chinese by staying at Keats.

This is my second time coming. Last year, I also came for about 12 weeks. This time I came for 13 weeks. The reason why I particularly want to come to this school was because of the one-on-one classes. I was able to increase my level and learn more quickly than group classes. If I have a chance again to come next year, I certainly will.

My first semester that I studied at another school, and the pressure there was pretty high, the classroom hour was long, and the homework was pretty tedious. Since I came to Keats, I found I have a lot more opportunities to speak in the classroom. My classmates all are fluent and love speaking and participating in the class. We have great classroom dynamic.

I really enjoy this place because we have private lessons. I took the 6-hour program, 4 hours in the morning, 2 in the afternoon. Even though it is quite a lot, the teaching is complimentary. This is very helpful because I could review what I did before and learn new things. My 2 teachers are fantastic. We live in the school, so it is convenient. It is interesting to me to meet people from all over the world.

Kunming is a great place to learn Chinese because not many Chinese on the street speak English. Keats has been a great school for me and a lot of other foreigners who studied in china recommended it to me. I think they are all right. The study method here is really structured. They make learning Chinese really easy. There are also a lot of cultural and natural places to visit.
