This unit provides students with further Chinese language training in a business and commerce context. Having been exposed to texts in a specialised business style, students will further improve their Chinese language proficiency, and will be introduced to an increased range of language features common to Chinese business texts. Students will continue to practise writing and translating related texts and will be required to display a greater level of sophistication and understanding in both their translation and original writing than in Chinese for Business Communication part 1.

- to familiarise with an expanded range of features of business text through discourse analysis
- to extend basic Chinese business writing skills acquired in Chinese for Business Communication Part 1
