Spring Term Classes start from 20 April 2020 – CANCELLED

Please note: In light of recent developments surrounding the ever-evolving Covid-19 situation across Europe and the UK, we will not be opening booking for the upcoming term due to commence in the week beginning April 20, 2020 until further notice. Any such bookings already placed via the Center for Open Learning will be cancelled in line with their new policy.

We offer a diverse programme of evening classes for the general public to enjoy learning Chinese. Our Spring 2020 courses will start week beginning 20 April and booking for these classes is now open.

All classes take place on the Confucius Institute for Scotland Campus sitting in the shadow of Arthur’s Seat. You can download a map showing the campus layout here – Conf-campus-map

Evening classes run for two hours on the same evening for a ten week term. No assessment is carried out but students are encouraged to test their developing skills by sitting the globally run HSK test.

Excellence in teaching is paramount. Our teachers are seconded from Fudan University which regularly send us experienced senior teachers and a number of Masters candidates in Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages. You can see the profiles of our current and previous teachers by clicking here.

Our classes are geared for adult learners at age of 16 and over.  For younger learners please enquire about private classes.
