Collaboration agreement with Capex of the Dominican Republic
Mandarin Centers Institute has recently signed a collaboration agreement for Mandarin Chinese language training with one of the main training entities in the Dominican Republic, Capex.Capex is a catalyst of great projects of entrepreneurship and innovation for Santiago and the Northern Region of the Dominican Republic, developing initiatives, programs and innovative proposals linked to the educational field.
This collaboration agreement will allow Capex’s more than 10,000 students enrolled in its various training programs to access Mandarin Chinese training that will significantly enrich their professional profile with a view to entering the labor market in the near future.
In addition, the Mandarin Chinese program follows the official curriculum of the official HSK Chinese exams, so that upon completion students will be able to certify their official level of Chinese.
In this first stage, students will be offered an initial level course, equivalent to level A1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
Although the training project itself is much more ambitious and the aim is to consolidate in the coming years an educational offer in Mandarin Chinese that includes not only language training but also courses to improve professional skills in areas such as business and tourism.
In the business field, courses related to protocol and negotiation with Chinese will be offered. This will facilitate trade relations between the Dominican Republic and China, which in recent years has already experienced visits and trade missions by Chinese businessmen.
With respect to the specific branch of tourism, it is not necessary to highlight the importance of this activity for the country’s economy. An improvement in the training of professionals in the tourism sector in the Chinese language and the way of attending and knowing the particular idiosyncrasy of the Chinese traveler will allow the Dominican Republic to improve its offer, position and visibility in this market in the coming years.
