Kickstart School offers a range of company courses to improve the language skills of your employees.

With the growth of the Chinese economy, learning Chinese is becoming increasingly important. With a view to the future of your business, it might be advisable to learn more about the Chinese language and culture. Building sustainable relationships with Chinese business partners may require an investment in this area. Kickstart School can help you with this. We provide both group and private courses.

It takes a considerable effort, of course, to learn to speak Chinese fluently, but even a beginner’s level of Chinese will certainly be appreciated. In our courses not only the Chinese language is discussed, but the teacher will also focus on contemporary culture and customs.

You can make a difference with a headstart in knowledge of Chinese language and customs. Our teachers, who are all native speakers, are happy to help you with this. Kickstart has over 18 years of expertise in developing lesson programs. This investment in building and maintaining good relationships with Chinese-speaking business partners will certainly pay off.
