Confucius Institute offers Chinese language classes in fall semester

Submitted by Shijun Yan

The K-State Confucius Institute is offering a number of practical and fun Mandarin Chinese language classes in the fall semester for children and adults. Both beginners and experienced learners are welcome. The institute also has parent and child classes in which one or both parents and their children can learn the language together.

Classes are open to anyone at K-State and local community members interested in learning the Chinese language. Students will be placed in different levels based on their Chinese language proficiency.
The noncredit classes complement the Chinese language classes offered by K-State's modern languages department. Different levels of classes are planned for both children and adults by native and professional Chinese teachers. 

The classes frequency will be determined by the students and the teachers according to their time, motivation, basic knowledge, etc. The fee for each course is $120 per session — 12 hours.

For more information about the classes, please contact the Shijun Yan at the Confucius Institute at shijunyan@k-state.edu or by phone at 785-532-3680. To enroll, please visit the UFM Community Learning Center's website or call 785-539-8763.

Launched in April 2015, the Confucius Institute aims to promote, enhance and elevate understanding of the Chinese language and culture, as well as create exchanges between Chinese and U.S. academic institutions and communities.
