This unit is offered in China through the Chinese Incountry program and provides students with Chinese language training in a business and commerce context. Having been exposed to texts in a specialised business style, students improve their Chinese language proficiency, and are introduced to an increased range of language features common to business texts. Students will continue to practise writing and translating related texts and will be required to display a greater level of sophistication and understanding in their translation and writing than in Chinese for Business Communication part 1. This will promote students' bilingual language proficiency and broaden their career opportunities.
