Confucius Classrooms

The Confucius Institute at the University of Minnesota is proud to have fourteen affiliated Confucius Classrooms, featuring top-ranked public and independent schools in the state of Minnesota, innovative early total Mandarin immersion programs, and a language village that offers rich extra-curricular activities for language learners. As a backbone of the K-12 Chinese language program of Minnesota, the Confucius Classrooms organize and participate in a variety of programming including summer camps in China, Chinese language proficiency testing, and celebrations of various Chinese festivals. Students of Confucius Classrooms have won awards like the Confucius Institute Cup International Composition Competition and have demonstrated their understanding of Chinese language and culture through continued excellence.

The Confucius Institute provides Confucius Classrooms a range of valuable resources that help to sustain and enhance programs, in addition to the application and allocation of annual Confucius Classroom operation funding. Support includes:
