‘After School at Confucius Institute’ offers Chinese-language courses

Middle Tennessee State University will offer “After School at the Confucius Institute” on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting Tuesday, Jan. 17, in Room 106 of Peck Hall.

Classes will be held from 3:15 to 5:15 p.m.

“After School” is a language and cultural enrichment program designed for children ages six to 12. It introduces the Chinese language and the colorful culture of China. The teacher is a native speaker of Chinese with a master’s degree in language teaching and many years of experience teaching language to young children.

The classes will focus on basic conversation, entry-level vocabulary and writing Chinese characters. Students will become familiar with the language and develop communication skills through traditional and nontraditional teaching and activities such as songs, crafts and games.

In addition to “After School,” 12 sessions each of Children’s Chinese I and II and 12 sessions each of Adult Beginning Chinese I and II are slated for 9-11 a.m. on Saturdays starting Jan 21.

Tuition for Children’s Chinese I and II and Adult Beginning Chinese I and II is $150. Tuition for “After School,” including materials, is $275.
