At the Confucius Institute for Scotland we offer a range of learning opportunities and different ways to develop an understanding of China. Our students range in age from 16 to 70 plus but all share an enjoyment of learning.

Zha Wenjin and students -Learning is fun

Zha Wenjin and students

The Institute offers over 60 timetabled language courses a year as well as workplace classes, private classes, cross cultural courses and public workshops. With expert teaching, small classes and the chance to quickly acquire basic Chinese language skills, check out our programme of classes all of which are led by qualified staff who speak good English, who will help you to enjoy your learning.

Some students come simply because they are curious about the language; others have plans to visit China or have Chinese friends. Other students are motivated to improve their CV or work prospects or are keen to develop a level of language skills prior to visiting China.

Our classes and teachers are highly ranked by students who each term are asked to evaluate the class.

 “From initial enquiry to course completion, I got exactly what I wanted”
