Course Description

China is becoming a world power. The economy is booming. The people are prospering now more than ever before.   On top of that, more and more Western companies are doing business with Chinese counterparts.   We are seeing China appear more in our news, and we're seeing the country become a force in manufacturing and politics.  

However, China is not a new up-and-comer in the world. It's a country that's thousands of years old and steeped in history and culture.   From its beautiful landscapes, to its etiquette, and to its philosophical beliefs that influence daily life, China is a country whose ancient roots influence its modern society.   It's a fascinating place to learn about… and easy to fall in love with.

This course was designed to teach you about Chinese culture today and the accepted behaviors of the Chinese people.   You'll learn about the lifestyles of modern Chinese people, the philosophies that guide their lives, and get an in-depth glimpse into Chinese culture so that, if you visit, you'll fit right in.

You'll also learn:

  • The history of China
  • About the climate and terrain
  • The ancient philosophies that still influence the culture and the people
  • Day to day life in China
  • The Chinese views on gender, family, and even foreigners (this may not be what you think)
  • Regional cuisines that you may encounter
  • Occupations and hobbies in China
  • Religions in China
  • About Chinese medicine
  • Business etiquette and culture
  • And much, much more.

If you're curious about China or are planning a visit either for business or pleasure, this course is a must-have.   You can buy a travel guide in any bookstore. This course, however, will introduce you to the most important part of China: its people.   You'll learn everything you want to know about their culture, and you'll get more than enough insight to be a welcome part of Chinese society during your visit.
