Featured Confucius Institute Programs


The Confucius Institute of the State of Washington is proud to host the HSK and the YCT at the University of Washington. The HSK and YCT exist to certify that non-native Chinese speakers are qualified to communicate in Chinese at the level required for school and daily interactions in China. Educational institutions and businesses often require proof of language proficiency for non-natives.

Student Exchanges

In spring 2018, Seattle was proud to send two student delegations, one from Chief Sealth International High School and one from Beacon Hill International Elementary School, to Chongqing to represent our city and school district. They represent the best of student exchange opportunities between our countries and offer us all hope for future good relations between China and the United States.

Seattle-Chongqing Sister City Partnership

The Seattle – Chongqing Sister Cities established 35 years ago as an important step in positive international relations between China and the United States. In 2010, Seattle Public Schools was invited to partner with the Chongqing Municipal Education Commission after CIWA was founded.
