Confucius Institute Classes
Since the UNL Confucius Institute began offering classes in Chinese Language and Culture, many students have benefited, adults as well as children, with rich 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 in our classes have learned to communicate in Chinese, even to the extent of participating in Chinese Speech Competitions.
