- Free Chinese Coner
We at UCD Confucius Institute are delighted to offer students an ideal chance to practice Chinese after class – Chinese Corner, every Monday evening, from 18.30 to 20.30 in UCD. We hope it will become an important place where students of Chinese meet with native speakers of Chinese and practice speaking what they have just learned in class. Here, you can practice with other Chinese learners and also native Chinese speakers. We prepared various activities which can help you to improve your Chinese, as well as getting to know China better!
- Professional and dedicated teaching team
Our experienced, native-speaking Chinese language teachers are selected and trained professionally. They are motivated, enthusiastic and they are also great fun!
- Small classes
There is a low student-tutor ratio in our evening classes. The average number of students in each class is 4-10 so that each student can participate actively in class and progress quickly.
- Culture workshops
Our students are invited to experience Chinese culture in the workshops and activities launched by the UCD CII.
- Students from all over the world
Our students have the opportunity to meet Chinese learners from all over the world. They can quickly gain confidence using the Chinese language in an international, relaxed, friendly and encouraging environment.
