UrFU begins immersive Chinese language, culture sessions

Ural Federal University (UrFU) will began its three-day Chinese language and culture session--the Confucius Institute--on Wednesday.

The annual Confucius Institute is open to UrFU students as well as students of other regional universities and immerses students into day-long educational sessions on Chinese language.

Courses are led by UrFU instructors, as well as guest educators from China's Guangdong University of Foreign Languages and International Trade. Towards the end of the educational session, participants will watch presentations from staff members of the Chinese Institute of Confucius, where they will hear about the philosopher's library fund and learn ancient Chinese calligraphy techniques.
