General information

The Chinese Language Course is an initiative organised by the Confucius Institute at Tallinn University (CITU). The course includes both language classes (Standard Mandarin Chinese) as well as a short introduction to Chinese culture.

One of the initial faculties of Tallinn University, the Estonian Institute of Humanities has been teaching Chinese since the mid-nineties. Currently, the Chinese language courses are conducted by the Confucius Institute, which was established at the Tallinn University in 2010. Since then the Chinese language program has enjoyed great popularity among both university students and people outside the university alike.

The CITU Chinese language teachers have specialised in teaching Chinese as a foreign language and come from Tallinn University's partner – Guangxi University in China.

The Chinese language course runs daily, three 45-minute classes per day. By the end of the course students are expected to be able to recognise, read and write about 150 Chinese characters, hold elementary conversations and have a basic understanding of traditional Chinese culture.
