Combine professional experience with personal development by joining CRCC Asia on our Chinese Language + Internship Program, which combines the professional aspect of our internship program with the academic benefits of our intensive Chinese language program.
Talk to one billion more people
We have teamed up with a top Chinese Language School to help you learn practical and effective Chinese. You will spend one month intensively learning Mandarin Chinese. This will start you on the right track to adding a new language, and will be a substantial help in navigating your way around China.
Chinese is the world’s most spoken language, as well as being an official language of the United Nations. The total number of Mandarin Chinese speakers worldwide is almost 1 billion. Although English remains the international language of business, Chinese is becoming more and more important around the globe.
You will have 20 classes a week of intensive Chinese class that promises to get you speaking from the start, giving you the confidence to talk in Chinese. With guaranteed small class sizes or the option of one-on-one tuition, you’ll get individual attention to maximize your learning. Classes last for 50 minutes followed by a 10 minute break, and you can spend your afternoons practising your new language skills in and around the city.
Although the program is available in all three locations, Beijing is by far the best place to study if you want to immerse yourself in Mandarin. Northern China speaks the purest form of Mandarin as compared to Shanghai where the Shanghainese dialect is prominent, and Shenzhen where the native language is Cantonese.
Gain real international business experience
After getting to grips with the language, put your new skills to good use and work for one month in an international or Chinese company. This will give you a unique opportunity to develop your professional skills in an industry of your choice.
Taking an internship is widely regarded as one of the most effective ways to start a career in a particular sector. It gives you an insight into the inner workings of a company through which you can learn many key skills to add to your CV or resume.
Beijing is the traditional seat of power in China. In the past it has been home to China’s ruling imperial families, and the city still serves as the country’s heart, as well as its political, educational and cultural hub.
Shanghai is China’s most internationalized city and has become a global financial powerhouse. With cutting edge architecture and a strong expat community, Shanghai has grown into a truly global and progressive city.
