**29 video lessons for self-paced study** 

Each video is 5~15 minutes long so you could finish one during a coffee break. All videos are presented in Chinese with English subtitles because we believe the key to learning a language is to maximize your language exposure. The instructors speak in Chinese at an appropriate speed so you can follow along.



**29 interactive exercises** 

Practice makes perfect. That's why we provide you with a set of interactive exercises after each video lesson. It should take 5~10 minutes to finish each set of 2-3 exercises.

Cultural expectations are an important part of communication in a different language, especially in business situations. We provide articles to explain 6 topics so you can learn the differences between working in China and other countries.
