Mandarin Chinese Language Classes

Classes at Lancaster campus

We offer Mandarin Chinese Language Classes for staff, students and the local community. Please see the language classes timetable for details. For all classes, learners will need to study privately for approximately 3 hours a week between lessons in order to learn vocabulary.

Are you interested in Chinese films?

Chinese film screenings on campus

Lancaster University Confucius Institute is offering a set of 10 Chinese film screenings on campus almost every fortnight. These should be excellent for any Chinese learners, but the invitation is open to absolutely everyone! If you fancy brushing up on your Chinese, or just want to enjoy a good film, we’d be happy to have you. And don’t worry- all our screenings feature English subtitles!
