Since the UNL Confucius Institute started the classes of Chinese Language and Culture, it benefits many students, adults as well as children, with learning experiences. The instructors, specially trained in teaching language learners, use powerpoint presentations, activities, listening and speaking practice, and various other methods to help students build their language skills. Students of our classes have learned to communicate in Chinese, even to the extent of participating in Chinese Speech Competitions.
To carry out the mission of promoting and teaching Chinese language and culture, and to better serve our community, we are pleased to announce that our registration fees for the 2013 fall classes are reduced. The $150 fee for adult language classes is lowered to $90; $120 fee for child language classes is lowered to $60; and the $100 fee for the culture classes is lowered to $50. We have always worked hard to provide quality Chinese language and culture teaching to our students and now we are reducing class fees to make our classes more affordable to everyone who is interested in learning Chinese and its culture.
The Institute operates in accordance with applicable local rules and regulations.
