Introduction of Chinese Language and Culture Institute in Coquitlam 

Chinese Language and Culture Institute in Coquitlam

The Chinese Language and Culture Programs at the Confucius Institute in Coquitlam is a non-governmental and non-profit educational organization supported by South China Normal University. The primary goal of the Chinese Language and Culture Institute is to strengthen multicultural relationships with other countries and promote cultural and educational exchanges as well as to provide support to Chinese language programs

Students and community members may access resources provided by the Coquitlam Chinese Language and Culture Institute to learn about Chinese culture and language by registering in classes and events offered after school, in the evening or on weekends. Programs are taught by local teachers, designed for ages four to adult and are open to anyone interested, for a small fee. Mandarin language, traditional Chinese painting, dance, choir and kung fu instruction are some of the more popular offerings. Annually the Chinese Bridge Public Speaking Contest attracts many participants from around the Lower Mainland wishing to showcase their Mandarin prowess.

In addition to the educational offerings, the Chinese Language and Culture Institute hosts a language proficiency testing center offering Chinese language proficiency tests of the Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK), YCT the Youth Chinese Test (YCT) and the Business Chinese Test (BCT). These internationally standardized tests offer non-native Chinese speakers' credentials that may open doors to employment, scholarships and studies in Chinese universities as well as other opportunities where speaking a major global language may be advantageous. Chinese language is spoken by a fifth of the world’s population!

School District No. 43 (Coquitlam) is committed to the success of all learners and providing educational opportunities that enrich the lives of students and encourage a perspective of global citizenship. Access to unique programs like those offered by the Chinese Language and Culture Institute and Coquitlam International Education are invaluable in expanding and diversifying the worldviews of students and community members.
