Author: Songren Cui, Jiaying Howard, Tsengtseng Chang
Publisher: The Chinese University Press (2005)
Binding: Paperback, 311 pages
Summary:
"The book aims to develop competence in advanced Chinese particularly on business content.

When using the book, learners need to integrate their language skills and content knowledge to accomplish the learning tasks. To keep abreast of the real business world, all the texts and exercises are authentic materials coming from Mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. With the learners’ communication need in mind, the book integrates the oral language (listening and speaking) with the written language (reading and writing). Business Chinese is a practical guide for those who aspire to Chinese language and China business."
