Characteristics of the Quarterly Chinese Language Courses

 

The new quarterly Chinese language course program is divided into three stages: basic, intermediate and advanced. The basic stage consists of 6 levels that are subdivided into: HSK 1A, HSK 1B, HSK 1C, HSK 2A, HSK 2B, HSK 2C

 

The intermediate stage consists of 5 levels called: HSK 3A, HSK 3B, HSK 3C, HSK 3D, HSK 3E.

 

The advanced stage consists of 5 levels called: Advanced 1A, Advanced 2A, Advanced 3A, Advanced 4A, Advanced 5A

 

In order to improve the teaching of Chinese and make it easier for the student to learn better, starting from January 2020, people who have not enrolled in courses at the Confucius Institute for more than 1 year must take the placement test.

 

Enrolled students can enjoy advantages such as Renmin University Summer School scholarship opportunities, 6-month, 1-year, or bachelor's and master's degree scholarships in teaching Chinese at universities in the People's Republic of China, and PhD programs with the China Study Plan Scholarships and Grants Program.

 

Enrolled students also have the opportunity to win a place in the University Chinese Bridge Competition held in July each year in a city in the People's Republic of China. All travel, lodging and food expenses are covered.

 

It is important to note that some classes may be taught in English from the HSK 2A course onwards.

 

Lastly, enrolled students can participate in summer camps in the People's Republic of China subsidized by the Confucius Institutes Headquarters, as well as scholarships in different areas for master's and doctoral degrees.
