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

I found Keats School and I am so glad that I did. When you learn Chinese in China at Keats, you are fully being taken care of. My teacher is really great and we become lovely friends.
I have studied at Keats for 2 semesters. I highly recommend Keats School. If you are very interested in taking a Mandarin course in China, I would suggest you come to Kunming. Kunming people are very friendly. The weather in Kunming is great. So I recommend that you study Chinese at Keats in Kunming.
All my classmates stay together for one year and we improved so much! The teachers at Keats are all very great. They like to organize a lot of activities to help us learn Chinese. I like Keats! I like Kunming!
One thing I really liked was that I was able to work with my teacher to make an individual plan of study. Another really nice thing is that you live at the school, you feel completely safe. You always have a group of people who are willing to do things with you on the weekends or in the evenings. They are serving you all the 3 meals a day, the food was excellent.
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, a new lounge area here now, so you can chill out with your friends and practice your spoken Chinese with natives. If you’re considering coming to Keats to study, I would really recommend it. It’s the best place to learn Mandarin and I think it will be a great experience for you.
Listening and speaking in the classroom every day has improved my communication skills. After three weeks, my new words and sentences became more and more natural and fluent. Now I am used to thinking in Chinese, and I understand better what other people say, to be able to have real conversations with other people.
We use a lot of games to learn grammar and new words. We have really good teachers, really patient. She helps us a lot. Our class is really nice and we have people from all over the world, different countries. We often discuss topics in Chinese in our class. I live in the dorm of Keats. It is very convenient. I don’t have to spend time traveling. You can just focus on learning Chinese.
I really enjoy studying Chinese in Kunming at Keats. The teachers are great and my classmates are awesome. It is an unforgettable experience for me. I also got the chance to travel to other places in Yunnan. Those places are amazing and you definitely need to visit these places when you study Chinese in China at Keats.
