Lancaster University was delighted to host a fabulous exhibition of Chinese Calligraphy works, for one evening only, as part of a tour across the UK.
This symposium was in an effort to bring together scholars with an interest in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), from different organisations across Asia, North America, and Europe.
On the 27th September, Confucius Institute staff were given the opportunity to hold a CI Day in Lancaster Central Library.
Throughout the year, the Confucius Institute regularly visits local schools, providing a day of learning all about China, and Chinese language and Culture. Usually, our days are split into spending time with each year group, and each group has at least an hour each day. At Winmarleigh School however, things went a bit differently.
The refurbishment of The Roundhouse, and its establishment as the Confucius Institute's home at Lancaster University, has now been officially recognised. On the 12th September, the Confucius Institute (CI) had the honour of hosting distinguished guests and visitors from a number of organisations and groups for the Opening Ceremony of the Extended Confucius Institute.
The Confucius Institute’s Chinese Summer School for 2018 has received a wonderful level of attendance and support from attending children and parents alike, thanks in no small part to our teachers’ hard work in providing new and exciting sessions!
