Connecting you to China, Mandarin and cross-cultural tourism
The Tourism Confucius Institute is the world’s first and only Confucius Institute with an emphasis on tourism.
We offer a range of exciting short courses for government, industry and the wider community to promote Chinese learning, as well as a better understanding of Chinese people and their culture.
Griffith staff and postgraduate students can enrol in any scheduled Tourism Confucius Institute Group course free of charge. Contact us to register.
The Tourism Confucius Institute is not involved in teaching or curriculum design for any University undergraduate or postgraduate degrees.
The Institute also plays no role in commissioning research.
Its teaching activities are done under the direction of a senior Griffith academic and, in many cases, in partnership with community organisations.
Our courses help promote Chinese culture and language through education.
China has one of the world’s oldest and most fascinating cultures.
In order to provide people with a better understanding of the country, we host a range of cultural programs for schools, university students, industry and the wider community.
Hope to see you at Brisbane's Lunar New Year Festival. Enjoy live performances and experience traditional Chinese culture on 24-25 January and 1-2 February 2020. See the full schedule of BrisAsia events.
Our group Chinese courses for 2020 will begin on 10 February and the class schedule has been posted. Private lessons are also available at any time upon request. For questions regarding our courses please contact Ms Shuang Wu for Nathan classes and Mr Frank Fang for Gold Coast classes.
The Nathan Campus and Gold Coast Campus Chinese Clubs are open to all levels of Chinese speakers, from beginning to advanced. Please contact Phoebe Huang for the Nathan group and Niki Zhang for the Gold Coast group for meeting days, time and venues.
