Welcome to my website

Would you consider learning the beautiful Chinese language and getting to know our extraordinary long-standing culture? Would you conceive of becoming particularly interested in interactive and multimedia work to develop your career? Do you need to correspond with Chinese partners in your daily office work? Are you planning to take a marvellous travel to China? What could be more pleasurable than being sent to Shanghai for business cooperation and making significant contribution? Will you be searching for a successful purchase in Hong Kong? What about studying in Beijing in two years….? Compose yourself and ask the specific question.

On account of apparent culture difference as well as unlikeness in process of reasoning between Chinese and European Citizens, it’s pretty important for people who look expectantly for opportunities in China; and who would welcome the chance of profit and engage themselves in business as well as in cooperating work in China to start learning Chinese and be an active participant of Chinese culture cultivation and get the needful training.

Just imagine being invited to your chief’s birthday dinner in China: What is a proper gift? What is strictly forbidden? Such an occasion requires of you not only suitable present but also appreciative behaviour, if you think of promotion and a salary increase.

China opens a wide door for giant adventures and offers endless possibilities. Nevertheless, not every one can get the prize he dreams of. First thing first is to do some training in Chinese language and know the pith of our profound culture. It’s my endless pleasure to devote myself to teaching you Chinese and consulting you about Chinese Culture. I am offering you my full assistance with mature experience for your success, either in dealing with business affairs or culture consultation, or any other personal interests for China. The key to open a highly colossal treasure of Chinese Culture and Confucianism is in your hand while you start the first step to Chinese language learning and culture consultation.
