Another reason why some people constantly advertise is that they want to expand, but cannot afford to pay the going rate.
But if advertising is free, they might just get lucky. But then again...

If you can get dinner dancing and champers for 300 rmb, let me know. And if you go to the chicken house you don't tend to pick up stalkers.

I have tried Google but can find nothing on this village or area. Perhaps it is too small.

Please provide more details of where it is. How far from Kunming and is it North, South, East, or West. A map would also help.

Forums > Study > Best Chinese school to study Business language out of office hours ?

There are formal courses in Business Chinese, I have seen the books and posters advertising courses in universities in other cities.

Perhaps if you try contacting Yunnan Normal Uni, MBA Education Centre as it is a teaching Uni. They probably don't run a course, but they might know of someone who does.

In case you are not aware, business Chinese is different to everyday Chinese. Unlike business English, which is an extension of everyday English.

In your post you used the term Business Chinese skills. If you mean by this Chinese business skills/culture, there is only one way to learn that - by experience. But there are many books that can give you some insight, and you might be better off reading on your own.

I am doing OK, but I have a Chinese business adviser who I can trust (hard to find), but I married her.

A thought on the aging population in China. We should not forget the economic changes that have occurred in the last two generations.
The people of retiring age over the next 10 years (50-65 now) are the generation who made the big money. What will they do with the money when they have time on their hands? One of the things they will likely do is travel.
This generation of middle class retirees is not the poor, financially dependent, aged who rely on their children for support. In fact many of them are supporting their children financially.
These people are mobile and rich enough to travel in a way that their parents could only have dreamed of. There are millions of them.



A reasonable choice of lumber that has improved over time. Fancy hardwoods like walnut, and mahogany are in abundance. There are some plywood and rubber-wood boards available. There are also some kiln dried imported softwoods and merbao available. Some of the lumber is very green, so look for the kiln dried if you need stable timbers.


Echo everything said by others.
Breakfast great and the serve from 8am. Most other places say 9am and they still are not ready.
Sandwiches are cheap 22-32, and really packed full of filling. We got some sandwiches for a day out, the only mistake I made was ordering two, as this was too much. These are seriously good sangars, and they are wrapped in alu foil.


In fairness to Metro, they are a wholesalers, and not really a supermarket. Hence the need for a card, which can be got around.

They have improved in the year I have been away. They now carry a more consistent range of imported foodstuffs and they also seem to have sorted out the mported milk supply.

They have a wider range of electrical appliances now, there is a coice of more than one toast. There is also a better range of seasonal non foods, like clothes, shoes, garden furniture and camping gear.
