Featured Confucius Institute Programs

Chinese Bridge Delegation

The Confucius Institute of the State of Washington helps coordinate the Chinese Bridge Delegation for Hanban/Confucius Institute Headquarters. This is an amazing opportunity for state and school district administrators and policy makers, especially school board members, to travel for about ten days to China to learn more about China’s education system and how to connect schools in China and the U.S.

Confucius Classrooms

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.

About the Confucius Institute

Learn Chinese language any time, any place. We help students connect to opportunities to learn Chinese in China and throughout Washington State. We help teachers connect to outstanding professional development in China and throughout the U.S.
