Chinese Language, Culture and More

Learn from our native Chinese teachers. We offer various courses for students, professionals and kids, basically everyone who wants to learn about Chinese language and culture. From absolute beginner to the more advanced learner, for everyone we have the right course.

During the year, we organize several cultural activities, for example related to Spring Festival, Lantern Festival and Dragon Boat Festival. We often do that in cooperation with our partners, like Zuyd University of Applied Science, Province Limburg, Municipality of Maastricht and since summer 2019 also with Municipality of Sittard-Geleen.

Next to that, we offer skill based training for professionals. If you want to do business with China, we can train you in a very practical way about the Chinese (entrepreneurial) way of thinking and working. We can create tailor made workshops and masterclasses for Communication & Strategy.
