Featured Confucius Institute Programs
HSK and YCT
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.
Confucius Classrooms are local institutions, based in U.S. schools, which stimulate and support innovative teaching and learning of Chinese language and culture. Confucius Classrooms adopt flexible teaching patterns and adapt to suit local conditions when teaching Chinese language and promoting culture in foreign primary and secondary schools. The Confucius Institute of the State of Washington serves as a liaison for Confucius Classrooms established in Washington State.
Guest Teacher Program
The Confucius Institute of the State of Washington partners with the Chongqing Municipal Education Commission and Hanban to sponsor visiting teachers to teach in K-12 schools in Washington. Whenever possible, these teachers come from partner schools to CIWA-sponsored Confucius Classrooms in Washington.
