The Fall 2012 Confucius Institute class schedule is now posted on our web site. http://confucius.umn.edu/students/classes/
We will be offering 6 levels, from Beginning Chinese 1 to Intermediate Chinese 3, as well as our drop-in Chinese Rehab class. Our teaching team is currently switching to a new textbook, Experiencing Chinese, and the course curriculum is being updated. We are also developing placement tests for each level except Beginning Chinese 1. Information about the new textbook and updated curriculum, as well as the links to the placement tests, will be added to our web site in the coming week. If you are unsure which level to take, you can use the placements test to determine the best level. If you have additional questions you are welcome to call the office to make an appointment to speak with one of our instructors to help you find the most appropriate class for your Chinese language learning level.
In addition to the changes to the curriculum, the Confucius Institute is growing! Beginning this fall, all Chinese course registrations will be handled by Emily Ruskin (not Emily Hanson). Emily Ruskin's email is ecruskin(at)umn.edu. Her phone number is 612-625-5210. Please contact her with questions about registration.
