The Confucius Institute is pleased to announce that our popular Chinese evening language and cultural courses will be taking place again in the autumn term.

We are offering 10-week language courses beginning during the week of 5 October, with Confidence Chinese courses covering speaking skills only and the Step series concentrating on reading, writing, speaking and listening.

For detailed information visit the language page of the Confucius Institute website:

Our Chinese brush painting course is also starting again on 14 October, for seven weeks. Learn about the history and culture of Chinese brush painting, and get an understanding of various brushstrokes and colouring methods.

Chinese Calligraphy will be starting on 22 October, running for seven weeks. These classes will explain the basic strokes of Chinese writing and help students to construct Chinese characters.

No prior knowledge of Chinese is required for our cultural courses – why not enrol and make something beautiful to decorate your home or office!
