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 Classes begin September 5 / 6. 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). The classes cost $60. If you’re interested in starting your son or daughter learning Chinese, sign up today online.

Due to the covid-19 pandemic and in compliance with the University of Nebraska - Lincoln public health policies, course offerings from the Confucius Institute will only be online this semester. Classes will be held live via Zoom and assignments issued on software such as google classroom. We appreciate your understanding and support through this difficult period.
