How to Use the Business Chinese Videoscript?

  • The scripts in the Listening module can also be used for reading and speaking exercises, especially for self-learners who find it helpful and enjoyable to read along with the scripts.
  • It is recommended to dedicate a minimum of two hours to complete one unit. If you study for 4 to 6 hours per week, you can finish the course within six weeks. However, you have the flexibility to plan your learning schedule according to your preferences.
  • Engage with the learning tasks in an interesting way and take advantage of the user-friendly video tutorials. As you progress through the course, you will find your learning experience increasingly encouraging.
  • The course can also serve as preparation for the Business Chinese Test (BCT). The BCT assesses your ability to communicate in Chinese and consists of independent assessments in listening, reading, speaking, and writing. The BCT is offered both in China and internationally. You can find additional materials related to the BCT and focus on your specific strengths and weaknesses to maximize your chances of achieving a high score on the test.
