From the Publisher:

Preparing a course in advanced business Chinese? Close the Deal: Advanced Chinese for Creative and Productive Business, a new book by the team of Harvard University's Yu Feng, teaches fluency in commercial Chinese.

Close the Deal provides specialized content, task-oriented activities, and an energetic corporate feel that enables higher-level learners to expand their Chinese language skills to the business arena. This highly relevant book offers a cutting-edge language curriculum that closely approximates real-world commercial projects and challenges: Marketing Surveys, Human Resources, Seeking a Business Partner, Mergers and Acquisitions, Contract Disputes, and more.

To explore these subject areas, Close the Deal employs practical projects that require both conversational and written skills. Students have to draw upon all their language and business resources to complete assignments, which include everything from role plays and routine correspondence to Internet research and full-scale proposals. Also included are extensive vocabulary lists, including idiomatic phrases that are a key component of professional fluency. Close the Deal will be a particularly dynamic learning experience in and beyond the classroom, thanks to companion audio CDs.

But Close the Deal is much more than a language textbook. It contains essential business cultural information that will allow students' fluency to make the leap from passable to persuasive. Formal Chinese language, social etiquette, and many other fine points of language and culture are addressed in copious notes.

Close the Deal is the most recent work spear-headed by Dr. Yu Feng, lead editor and compiler of Pop Chinese. Dr. Feng, of Harvard University's Chinese Language Program, has taught advanced Chinese in a variety of specialized subjects for years, and polished Close the Deal with rigorous testing in his Advanced Business Chinese course. The result speaks for itself in this innovative, systematic approach to the acquisition of truly professional business Chinese.
