China is one of the leading trading partners to both Australia and to Queensland. Highlighted by the recent formalisation of a China-Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA), there is an expectation that Sino-Australian engagement will continue to increase through various avenues including trade, investment, education, research and cultural exchange.

This short course will benefit participants that regularly interact with Chinese students, visitors, academics, researchers, and industry/government connections, providing an understanding of key cultural aspects and how they shape behaviours, traditions, and interpretations.

2. Understand how the Chinese language and the related thinking patterns reflect the Chinese culture 
3. Learn about some special features of Chinese culture such as symbolism and localism.
