The Confucius Institute at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln offers fun Chinese language classes for kids ages 6 and up on Saturdays in Omaha and Sundays in Lincoln. Fall 2017 classes begin September 5th. Our teachers specialize in teaching Chinese as a second language and geared towards non-heritage learners. These classes are not intended for native speakers or heritage learners (but of course they're still welcome). Classes cost approximately $60-70 per semester, but final cost will be determined by Aug 15th. If you’re interested starting your son or daughter learning Chinese, sign up today online or download, print, and send in the paper form.

Note: We hope to have online payment available soon, but you can still mail us a check or bring a check to the first day of class.
