"This two-day workshop has been both enjoyable and enlightening. The workshop goes beyond teaching participants on Mandarin, for it has informed me of the unique cultural and social norms of business dealings and networking in China. This was achieved through a fun-filled session with practices that further enhanced our appreciation of the Chinese social etiquette. "
