Why Learn Chinese in Perth

For Work: Learning Chinese Mandarin will open up professional doors for you in the city. International companies constantly expand to other markets and need bilingual employees to communicate with their new business partners, and many have offices in Perth. For instance, did you know that there are many companies, such as Atlassian, Austal Ships and Chemeq that are always looking for fluent Chinese speakers? So, start learning the language today and boost your employability! Also, it is possible to connect with businesses of Chinese origin by getting in touch with the  Western Australian Chinese Chamber of Commerce on Hay Street, a non-profit organisation established in 1987. They assist both Western Australian and Chinese companies in locating business partners through activities like seminars, workshops and conferences. Impress the attendees with your flawless Mandarin skills.

For Culture: Chinese cultural heritage can be easily experienced around the city. For example, you can attend some of the many events organised by the Chinese Society, a non-profit club that aims to promote Chinese culture and lifestyle in Perth. For example, they organise the Perth Chinese Calligraphy and Arts Group, where you can improve your imagination and memory by learning to use ink and brush to paint intricate Chinese characters and stunning visual pieces. You will also be able to meet others in this group who share your passion for the Chinese culture and language, allowing you to practise your skills and exchange ideas and information about local events. These classes are taught by a native Chinese teacher using a bilingual format, so make you can understand what he/she is saying in Chinese by taking some Mandarin lessons with us in advance! Also, Perth celebrates the Chinese New Year, featuring lion-dancing, stalls, games, special entertainment, fantastic traditional food and even movie screenings. You will feel as if you were in China without ever leaving your city!

For Social: It’s also possible to make new friends with a similar interest in this ancient language and culture. For example, you can join the Perth Asian Meetup, a group of people who get together at least once a week to practise languages (among them, Chinese Mandarin) while meeting new people and sharing their experiences. Don’t hesitate to join them and put your newly-acquired Chinese skills to use in a friendly environment! Also, these meetings are usually held at Chinese-themed restaurants, such as Golden Treasure on Hay Street or 8 on the Point on Riverside Dr. These places offer traditional food, such as chow-mein, kung-pao chicken and delicious dumplings. Imagine ordering these dishes using the Mandarin skills you learn with us at Language Trainers!
