Inside China, Express Mode

  • Dec 13, 2009
A most effective way of learning Mandarin, about Chinese & all that's happening in China is via this prominent & proficient TV station broadcasting China Business News from its base in Shanghai. I first come to know this station while living in Shanghai 2 years ago.

Major shows are:
  1. Fortune Time (财富人生)
  2. Brainstorm (头脑风暴)
  3. Boss Show (波士堂)
  4. Managing China (中国经营者)
  5. Top Realtor (第一地产)
  6. Total Auto (天下汽车)
  7. Stock Today (今日股市)
  8. Economist (经济学人)
  9. No Free Lunch (谁来一起午餐)
  10. Commercial Strategy (决战商场)
  11. Companies & Sectors (公司与行业)

My favorites:
  1. Brainstorm - This is a weekly debate or brainstorming sessions inviting major corporate and educational leaders to debate on a current topic of interest to the public. It's a provocative shows and one where I learned about what interests the Chinese public and also the society's concern. It gives a good indication of brain maps of successful individuals and companies in China. An hour session weekly amounts to a university course if not better than what a professor can impart. A most useful and entertaining program.
  2. Fortune Time - A one to one talk show. Great host and many CEOs have been invited to be on this show. To get some insider news or indications about a company performance or goals of a company, this is a must watch. One certainly has to be very successful to be invited on this program.
  3. Boss Show - A more relaxing meet the boss kind of show. Host & 3 guests converse with the star of the show (normally a boss in his/her own right). Audience may be university students or employees from related industries.
  4. Managing China - A one to one interview session between the host and guest representative of his/her industry/profession. This one concentrates on managing styles.
  5. Top Realtor - A most interesting visit to model homes for properties that are currently being marketed in Shanghai & surrounding areas.

All in all, the standard of programs is that of first rate & I find them even better than those from Hong Kong in terms of coverage and execution. So, all in all, Chinese business programs are skyrocketing at a speed none has ever experienced before and it's time for the rest of the world to begin learning Chinese & about China! No joke!!! You won't believe me until you have visited China & lived here for some time. Yes indeed, in some aspect, China is still lagging behind the western world. However, if it hasn't been, most other countries will no longer have any competitive edge. It's a matter of survival and the rest of the world do need to take note. I'm dead serious about this!
