Chinese Culture Courses

Deepening our understanding of China and developing the skills, knowledge and capabilities to effectively engage in the Asian Century is becoming increasingly important to our future. There is a growing awareness in Australia that increasing our integration with, and dependence on the Asian region, requires a more comprehensive ability to understand and communicate with the societies of Asia.

The Confucius Institute offers courses, programs, activities, and creates opportunities for students of all ages and backgrounds to develop the language, cultural and professional skills necessary to better understand the social and cultural nuances important to developing sustainable relationships with China. 

Our instructors are all university qualified Chinese teachers with years of experience teaching Chinese to speakers of other languages. The achievements and success of our students is in part attributable to their teaching skills and ability. Our students keep returning and attribute much of their success and sense of achievement to the quality of our teachers and courses.
