In Person Communication With Chinese


Effective spoken communication is not just about understanding the words in a language, it encompasses adapting your content and style to the audience to promote the free-flow of information, ideas, questions and answers.

To do this with Chinese you need to know their communication expectations, how they structure a conversation - which is different than in the west, how they use diplomatic communication around negative subjects, what makes them uncomfortable and therefore uncommunicative, what their body language, behaviours and communication mean.

This video quickly & clearly explains Chinese communication norms, styles and expectations. It shows you how identify speech patterns, words and body language that are the Chinese way of communicating something without saying it out loud and how to adapt your communication to both give and receive messages effectively with Chinese.
