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.

Travel Chinese Courses

These courses are designed for non-Chinese speakers who need help communicating while traveling in China. They aim to help students to master the basic vocabularies for travelling in China, develop Mandarin (Putonghua) listening and speaking skills in order to understand common topics related to travelling in China, and gain familiarity with Chinese culture.

Chinese Bridge Competition

The Chinese Bridge – Chinese Proficiency Competition is an annual event organized by the Confucius Institute Headquarters (Hanban) in China. Over the past 17 years, the Chinese Bridge has become a platform for college and high school students from all over the world to learn Chinese and understand China.
