Confucius Institute spring courses now in session

February 7, 2014

Fifteen non-credit Chinese language and culture courses are available at a discount to CSU faculty, staff, students and their families.

After a successful first semester on campus, the Confucius Institute has doubled its Chinese course offerings for the spring term, which starts Feb. 9. Classes for all ages and skill levels are being offered at a discounted rate of $35 for a 10-week session (normally $70). Registration is now open, and a full course schedule is available online.

Paola Malpezzi Price, chair of the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, took the Adult Chinese Conversation class at the Confucius Institute this fall. “I always wanted to study a non-European language,” said Malpezzi Price, who speaks English, Italian, French, German and Spanish. “I hope to go to China for site visits to a couple of universities with programs in Chinese language and culture in order to recommend them with details to future students.”
