Learn Chinese – a language with success prospects

The special seminar of TU Wien is held again this fall.


China is one of Austria’s most important business partners. The interest of Chinese investors in the European market continues to increase. In the meantime, Austrian companies consider China to be a flourishing market. Decent knowledge of the language, as well as an understanding and sensitivity for the culture facilitate the professional and private entry to the distant country.

To properly prepare students of the Technical University and other interested parties to the challenges of a foreign language and culture, the Continuing Education Center of TU Wien once again offers the Special Seminar “Chinese for Beginners” starting in Fall 2018.

In the course of the seminar, participants gain a first insight into the country, its people and the language. “At the end of the course, participants will be able to understand sentences and frequently used expressions in Chinese and can communicate in simple, everyday situations” says Dr. Yan Li, lecturer of the class. The qualified instructor was born in Sichuan, China, studied in Beijing, China and is active as a foreign language lecturer in the US, Münster and Vienna.
