Cultural awareness training

Traditional and modern Chinese culture is so intertwined that it can seem impenetrable. Our comprehensive cultural awareness sessions cover everything you need to know when interacting with China, from business faux pas to dining etiquette via an all-important basic language introduction.

Learning a new language can be a huge commitment but the latest online learning technology allows flexibility where students learn and how they learn.

What people are saying

We organised Mandarin lessons for our team because we work with Chinese brands and thought it would be a fun activity to do together. Dragons did not disappoint. Our excellent teacher pitched the learning content perfectly and not only did we learn, we enjoyed it enormously.  Dragons comes highly recommended and we would love to work with them again in the future.
