Video Conference classes

This autumn students in Argyll, Elgin and Lewis will have the opportunity to learn Chinese with the Confucius Institute for Scotland in partnership with UHI Millenium Institute.

Following a successful pilot last year this autumn will see Video Conference classes running on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Students who enrol for these classes will have the opportunity of a face to face meeting with their tutor prior to the first class before meeting via the video conferencing network.

Last year`s pilot group of students and their teacher found the experience very satisfying and excellent progress was made by the students. While last year we offered a taster session this year`s students will be able to progress each term to the next level of learning.

Classes cost £135 which includes learning materials with a concession rate of £110.
