Dear UG staff and students,

No matter you heard of Confucius Institute or not after you came to UG, let me assure you one thing that I learnt from one of you student while choosing what foreign language to learn. I didn’t use to know that you guys thought that learning Mandarin, you have to write Chinese characters from the very beginning. But let me clarify this once again: NO, you learn PINYIN first, which is identical to English alphabet, with only a little difference in pronunciation. It’s not that hard for beginners. Welcome everyone to join us to learn Mandarin, it’s free and four credit course. Why not give it a try? You will love it. The registration begins from January 28 and runs until February 2. Welcome to our office between 9:30 and 11:30 in the morning and 2:30 until 5 in the afternoon. The office is on the first floor at First Education Building. Call cell phone number 6728595 if you come earlier. For the class time, please check the following timetable.
