Greater China’s economic rise
has created huge opportunity.

Knowledge of the Chinese language
and China’s cultures provide access to this opportunity
in a deeper, broader context.

We are a global community of qualified, proficient speakers of Chinese as a second language. 

Inter-dependency of the evolving global system makes it vitally important to develop a balanced perspective on Greater China by building meaningful relationships through cultural empathy and adaptability. Individuals who have studied Chinese to an advanced level have a unique ability to influence cross-cultural interactions.

Multi-cultural fluency, personal experience and the ability to navigate local networks are critical to any progressive organisation intent on developing lasting engagement with Greater China. 

Established in 2008, Chinese-Speakers is a non-profit, non-partisan membership organisation based in the UK.
