International symposia

Since 2010, the Confucius Institute (CI) has held, and will continue to hold, international symposia on Chinese language learning and teaching on a biannual basis. The purpose of the symposium is to provide a platform where Chinese and British scholars are able to communicate in-depth, inspire each other and share their academic research and achievements.

Through interaction with each other and exploration from multiple perspectives, we hope to open our minds to the various modes of Chinese teaching and learning in an English-speaking environment. This in turn will assist us in further improving Chinese teaching and learning.

We also hope that the CI can strengthen its collaboration with Beijing Normal University and other institutions in language learning.
