In depth: Our Mandarin Courses for Business in Greater Manchester

Mandarin Teaching Approach & Experience

Both professionals and non-professionals alike have seen great benefits from a SIMON & SIMON Mandarin Language Course. SIMON & SIMON’s team of qualified Mandarin teachers is made up of native speakers who average 15 years of experience. These teachers will make sure that a course is tailored for your specific needs so that you will benefit regardless of your language proficiency. Feedback from clients on our Mandarin tutors is consistently highly positive. Our students are sent a profile containing information on their specific teacher’s experience and background before the start of their Mandarin Lessons.

If the only experience you have of studying a language is from your time in school, you may not know that there has been a revolution in the teaching of modern languages so that it is both more fun and more worthwhile. Your Mandarin teacher in Greater Manchester will be using the Communicative Approach, where your lessons will, with few exceptions, be conducted in Mandarin. You will see your progress from that very first lesson and will soon be confident enough to conduct business or talk socially in Mandarin.

1:1 and Group Mandarin Courses in Greater Manchester

Our Mandarin language courses are available on both a 1:1 and group basis, but the majority of our clients offer 1:1 Mandarin training to their employees. However, with careful planning, group training can offer great value for money, provided there is a real commitment from the participants to get together at the same time every week. We strongly recommend you keep group numbers to 6 or less for these types of courses to be successful. Those learning Mandarin in Greater Manchester on a 1:1 basis will naturally make much faster progress, as the course will be designed around their individual needs and focus on their particular strengths and weaknesses.

Mandarin Course Management

Every SIMON & SIMON Mandarin language course has a highly experienced, multi-lingual Account Manager who oversees it. When your Mandarin course starts you will be sent a profile on your trainer, materials for your course and a Course Plan as well as a Progress Report for every 40 hours of training. Breaking the Language Barrier, our quarterly newsletter that you will also receive, contains a prize draw as well as weblinks to a number of learning resources.

Mandarin Course Locations & Schedules

We have a global network of language trainers so our Mandarin language courses can be arranged for almost any major European city, or even further abroad. SIMON & SIMON have run Mandarin language courses for clients in many diverse locations. Mandarin language courses can be run in your home for your convenience, but many of our clients prefer to run them in their offices so as to minimise travel. For a list of the locations of the full-time residential Mandarin language courses that we offer, contact our office.

Greater Manchester Mandarin Course Schedules

Our Mandarin language courses in Greater Manchester go on all year. Some of our students attend more than one 90-minute weekly session if work circumstances allow, and most will attend at least one per week. Weekend Courses in Mandarin can be arranged on request. Our Mandarin courses are available 12 hours a day, from 8am to 8pm Monday through Friday. 30 hour per week intensive Mandarin courses can be held on clients’ premises or in residential centres in the UK or abroad. These courses take 6 hours per day, Monday through Friday.

Mandarin Course Content

We will tailor your Mandarin language course for your specific aims and level of knowledge. Before you start your Mandarin language course we will assess your goals and level of Mandarin experience. Your desire to learn Mandarin may be simply to develop basic skills, or you may have some level of proficiency and wish to increase your ability to use Mandarin to discuss business. You may want to develop your language skills so that you can use Mandarin in negotiations and meetings or improve your pronunciation and telephone skills. No matter what goals you have, you can be confident of our Mandarin trainers experience and that your Mandarin language course is tailored to your needs and your goals will be quickly met.

Mandarin Language Examination Courses

Our students’ pass rate for Mandarin examinations is at 95%, and we are happy to help with the preparations for any such examination. Our high pass rate shows the value of working with Mandarin teachers in Greater Manchester who have a higher level of experience than average. SIMON & SIMON also arrange registration for Mandarin examinations as well as administering the examination and issuing the results.

About Mandarin

Standard Mandarin is a standardized form of spoken Mandarin, based on the Beijing dialect of Mandarin Chinese. Standard Mandarin is the official language of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the Republic of China (ROC, also known as Taiwan), as well as one of four official languages of Singapore. It is one of the six official languages of the United Nations. About one-fifth of the world’s population, or over one billion people, speaks some variety of Mandarin as their native language. Linguists often view Mandarin as a language family, though owing to China’s socio-political and cultural situation, and the fact that all spoken varieties use one common written system, it is customary to refer to these generally mutually unintelligible variants as “the Mandarin language”.

About Greater Manchester

Greater Manchester is a metropolitan county in North West England, with a population of 2.6 million. It encompasses one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United Kingdom and comprises ten metropolitan boroughs: Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Wigan, and the cities of Manchester and Salford. Greater Manchester was created on 1 April 1974 as a result of the Local Government Act 1972.

Greater Manchester spans 496 square miles (1,285 km2). It is landlocked and borders Cheshire (to the south-west and south), Derbyshire (to the south-east), West Yorkshire (to the north-east), Lancashire (to the north) and Merseyside (to the west). There is a mix of high density urban areas, suburbs, semi-rural and rural locations in Greater Manchester, but overwhelmingly the land use is urban. It has a focused central business district, formed by Manchester city centre and the adjoining parts of Salford and Trafford, but Greater Manchester is also a polycentric county with ten metropolitan districts, each of which has at least one major town centre and outlying suburbs.

The Greater Manchester Urban Area is the third most populous conurbation in the UK, and spans across most of the county’s territory. For the 12 years following 1974 the county had a two-tier system of local government; district councils shared power with the Greater Manchester County Council.
