Through all our activities we aim to give our students the best possible experience by ensuring that learning Chinese is fun, memorable and, most of all, useful.
Here are just some of the comments and feedback we've received from our students.
Chinese Beginners I
Keith Miller found that the Confucius Institute’s Chinese Beginners I course significantly helped improve his Chinese proficiency, particularly his pronunciation.
Chinese Beginners II
International journalism lecturer James Stewart began learning Chinese in order to improve his Chinese pronunciation. He has now progressed to Chinese Beginners II.
Advanced Chinese I
Nikolai Llewellyn began Mandarin lessons with the Confucius Institute in 2009. He has now developed into a confident conversational and professional speaker of Mandarin.
Cardiff Confucius Institute China Trip
Each year Cardiff Confucius Institute organises a trip to China for students on part time Chinese courses for adults or Languages for All Chinese programmes. The trip is an opportunity to travel to at least two cities in China, to learn and practice the language first-hand, and to experience life on a University campus.
In April 2019, a group of 15 students took part in the Confucius Institute China Trip. They spent ten days living on the Xiamen University Campus, learning Chinese and experiencing life as a student in China.
Following their time in Xiamen, they visited Shanghai for three days during which they undertook sight-seeing activities and put into practice their newly acquired Chinese vocabulary. Watch the video of their trip here
