Chinese

The Chinese language course of the University of Groningen Language Centre will introduce students to the Chinese language ('Mandarin') or build on knowledge and skills already present. The emphasis will be on communication in everyday situations in relation to cultural customs in China. In addition, attention will be paid to grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and writing skills.

These courses are organized in association with the Groningen Confucius Institute.

Language of Instruction

The target language is the language of instruction as much as possible. When necessary, the course is taught in English.

Target Group

The Chinese language courses of the Language Centre are offered to University of Groningen students only . We refer all other parties interested in Chinese language courses to the Confucius Institute.


online courses

These courses will be taught as online interactive group courses. One lesson lasts 2 hours, in total a course lasts 32 hours. Per lesson you should count on 2 hours of self-study. Besides the lessons, each group will have 1 consulting hour online and 1-hour online Chinese Language Teahouse per week to practice with fellow course participants and receive more guidance from the teacher.
