“The Chinese language is not only the tool for communication and doing business, but also the bridge to friendship. In Chinese culture, friendship is more important than business. Once you have established a friendship, cooperation becomes easy and you are able to foster a long term relationship.
At Regina Coeli we offer a very practical and flexible method for learning the Chinese language. Each student is different, so we design a tailor-made programme for every student according to their personal needs and aims.
Students learn the Chinese language at Regina Coeli. But we also want to teach them never to give up the desire to learn Chinese. If you learn more, you will discover more beautiful things of the Chinese culture.”
