Summer Mandarin Language Program

Date: June 17 – June 28, 2019

Location: 1244 South 3rd Street, Louisville, KY 40203


The Confucius Institute of Western Kentucky partnered with Asia Institute/Crane House to present the “Summer Mandarin Language Program.”  The program is designed as an immersion style program, which took place at the Asia Institute/Crane House from June 17 – June 28, 2019 with 48 students participating in this inaugural program.  The program was taught by Native Chinese teachers from the Confucius Institute program, which engaged students with a fresh curriculum focusing not only on language content, but useful language skills with a robust infusion of culture, activities, and special events.

There are present plans to continue this program next year from June 15 – June 26, 2020.  A preliminary schedule is listed below:
