    “Art & Elegance” Cocktail Party with the French Connection

    The French Connection is a professional consortium created in 2014 in Beijing and gathering a total of 28 international companies; each of them specializing in its own activity, and whose purpose is to help expatriates and their families by providing them with a wide range of services mainly focused on basic needs and leisure activities (Chinese classes, real-estate, arts, sports, travels, etc.).

    In order to raise awareness, the group decided to organize last Thursday May 19th its 2016 first exclusive event “Art & Elegance”. The Cocktail Party with a Smart & Casual dress code was held at the Yi House Garden, a modern and pleasant place located on Jiuxianqiao Road in Beijing.

    From 18.30pm to 22pm, not less than 250 VIP guests came and had the opportunity to enjoy a magnificent horse show mixed up with a quartet playing classical music, fully respecting the “Art & Elegance” theme. The show was later followed by a buffet where everyone could enjoy fine wines and finger food in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The event ended with a lucky draw where guests had the opportunity to win more than 30,000 RMB worth of gifts offered by the French Connection. The ideal location, the outstanding artistic performances and of course the participation of remarkable guests and dedicated professionals were the keys that made this event such a huge success. Our only question now is when will the next event take place?

          TailorMade new Chinese Learning Center in Sanlitun, Beijing

          You’re looking for a Chinese school in Beijing and don’t know where to go? Just pass by and have a look at our new Sanlitun Center!
          We’re open from Monday to Friday 8:30AM to 8:30PM and on Saturdays from 9AM to 6PM (but classes are available from 7AM to 9PM all week long for face to face, 24/7 for Skype ones). You can also call us, or send an email in advance to organize a trial lesson. Contact details are at the end of this article.

          Learn Chinese in the center of Beijing

          To make it more convenient for the many foreigners working, living, or just passing by and willing to learn Chinese in Beijing, our new Chinese Center is ideally located in the heart of Chaoyang district, at the center of the commercial and diplomatic area of Sanlitun.

          A great variety of shops, restaurants and pubs are within few minutes’ walk from our classrooms, same as for Sanlitun subway station and the many bus lines that link the place to the rest of Beijing. Right down our office, you will find two nice Mexican restaurants, the “QMex” and “Taco Bar”, one of the best place to eat Hamburger, “Homeplate BBQ”, and the best French bakery in town, “TiensTiens”, where you can also enjoy a good glass of wine and French food, especially in summer on their rooftop. You want to have a coffee while reading a book or reviewing your Chinese? You can go to «The Bookworm ». To drink a relaxing cocktail after your evening class we recommend you « D Lounge », a beautiful lounge in the neighboring building. Finally, salsa fans can enjoy go dancing to the Salsa Caribe club, and a gym with brand new facilities and equipment is also located in the next building.

          An ideal location

          If you walk about 100 meters and cross Gongti north road, you will reach the city’s hottest spot, Sanlitun village. In day time, you may want to visit the Apple store, Uniqlo, or any of the numerous shops and restaurants available in the area. In the evening, you will probably enjoy the extravagant nightlife of Sanlitun north village streets that are so famous among local expatriates and students who come to study Chinese in Beijing.

          Another advantage of the Center is its closest environment, and the proximity with other companies of the place, called “Maison France Chine”. “Maison France Chine” is the concretization of a project initiated by the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in China (CCIFC), in partnership with Scout Real Estate, CCI Paris Ile de France (Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry) and with the continuous support of the French embassy. This project gathers on two storey of a freshly renovated building:
          The CCIFC offices and its business centre which hosts 19 companies at the second floor
          11 partner companies : Alinea, Anthogyr, la CCI Paris Ile-de-France, Crepanini, HEC Business School, Impeto Medical, Leaf, LLR, la Maison de la Chine, Scout Real Estate and TailorMade Chinese Center, split between first and second floors.

          This proximity, especially with the CCIFC and its host companies at the same floor, generates a positive and energetic ambiance allowing students to feel closer to the local business life while meeting people with similar interests.

          Visit our brand new Chinese learning center

          Renovation work at the Center lasted most of summer 2015, and the first Chinese lessons started beginning of September. Since then, the Center is fully operational and welcomes students every day of the week. Metallic stairs at the entrance and steal bums of the ceiling contrast with the simple but modern design of the place’s main area, which displays 6 classrooms featuring windows and plain white or glass walls, in order to allow more natural light inside. Before, during or after their class, students have access to free WIFI, can drink tea or coffee at the school, and enjoy the wide glass roof having a rest on one of the sofas of our second floor’s common area.
          So no matter if you are living close to Sanlitun village, working there or just going from time to time, we hope that next time you will take few minutes and come to have a look!
