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

Now that you understand in detail why we highly recommend the use of TCB, it’s time to sign up. If you sign up to study at Keats School, be sure to tell TCB that when you’re creating your profile online.

Rients's Story at Keats Kunming, My Second Hometown

Intensive One on One Chinese Classes

I have been to Keats School for 4 times now. The reasons for coming back to this school is pretty much that the teachers I did work with were very good teachers. I make it a 5-year plan or even 10-year plan to come back to this school.  All the teachers have methods of looking at what your skills are. They are aware of at what level you are. I think it is worth for everyone.

Intensive One on One Chinese Classes

I’ve had a really great time here. I’ve studied a lot with my teacher who was fantastic. Keats School tried very hard to match its students with really good teachers that their personality works very well together. I really enjoy the school and I will definitely come back.

I think Kunming is a great city, the weather is really good. I really like Keats school and found it is very organized. The teachers here are very good. They have a coffee shop and new classrooms, new lunge area here now, so you can chill out with your friends and practice your spoken Chinese with native. If you’re considering to come to Keats to study, I would really recommend it. It’s a great idea and I think it will be a great experience for you.

I have 2 teachers, and I do 4 hours a day. So I have got Dong Laoshi and Jin Laoshi. Both of them are very good. They made the experience very nice to me. They are willing to help you whenever, so if you ever have a question here, the teachers are always there to help you whether it is visas, whether it is getting around the city. Everyone wants to talk to you.

HSK Test Preparation Course

Last year I started studying Chinese at University. The reason that I came here is that currently, I’m preparing for the HSK 5 test. Also, I heard that this is one of the best schools to study Mandarin in China. After I came here I realized that Kunming is a pretty cool city to live in and with regards to the teachers’ teaching methods, I think they’re very professional. And I think the language environment is good so now I’m ready to take the HSK 5 .
