Learn Chinese at your own pace

The Tourism Confucius Institute at Griffith University has a range of short-term (12-week), non-degree Chinese language and culture courses tailored to the learning needs of government, industry and the broader community.

IMPORTANT NOTICE  Term 1 2020 classes for the Gold Coast that were due to commence on 10 February have been postponed until further notice. Several of our teachers who are now in China have been asked to remain in China for the time being in an effort to contain the ongoing outbreak of respiratory illness first identified in Wuhan, China, caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. Please watch this space for information as to when classes will commence. If you have any concerns or questions please send an email to Frank Fang.

Special trial offer: Free Basic Chinese 1 classes*

Griffith staff and postgraduate students can enrol in any scheduled Tourism Confucius Institute Group course free of charge. Contact us to register.

We also offer other programs and initiatives, including Chinese language proficiency tests (HSK, BCT), Chinese for primary and secondary schools, speech competitions, Chinese Corner (a free weekly conversational group), as well as scholarship and research opportunities.
