The Chinese Language Institute in New Delhi is pleased to announce the introduction of internet-based conversational Chinese courses on its website Created for the busy professional who has limited time for language learning, the Chinese Language Institute’s online courses are designed to maximize learning. 50 lessons, covering 34 unique topics chosen from a variety of situations including daily use, business and tourism, have been designed to provide learning through a creative mix of audio (mp3) and interactive text.

Mrs. Purnima Garg, director of the Chinese Language Institute explained, "Almost fifty percent of our inquiries are from out-station students. Of the other fifty percent of inquiries from New Delhi, almost half are from people who are not able to regularly attend our classroom courses because of work and other commitments. Our online courses have been designed keeping such people in mind. The hallmark of our courses is not just good content and presentation but comprehensive exercises at the end of each lesson that measure the students’ learning."

As business and tourism are growing between India and China, there is a growing demand for Chinese language instruction in India. There are few places, however, that provided well-structured courses focused on the typical business executive who has limited time to spend on language learning. At the Chinese Language Institute in New Delhi, expert teachers have been brought in from China to design a curriculum that encourages students to use the language from the first day of class. The emphasis is much less on theory and more on conversationalmonitoring system.
