Confucius Institute in Brussels

confuciuslogo_100For 28 years already, Belgium China Association has been offering the largest range of Chinese Language and Culture courses in Belgium.

In October 2006 The Confucius Institute in Brussels was founded and officially inaugurated at the Egmont Palace, in presence of the Chinese deputy prime minister Mr. ZENG Paiyan and his Belgian counterpart Mr. Didier REYNDERS.

It is part of a vast international network that has been established with the support of the Chinese Government to promote and diffuse the Chinese language and Culture. Its activities are based on the previously existing courses of the former China Academy, the famous school of the Belgium China association that has more than 20 years of experience in teaching the Chinese language and Culture in Belgium.

hvd-zqyThe Confucius Institute in Brussels was the very first Confucius Institute to be established in Belgium, as officially stated in the agreement of March 2005 by The National Office for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language and the Belgium China Association.

Its Chinese partner, The University for Foreign Languages of Beijing, gained widespread recognition, and is regarded as one of the leading universities for foreign languages, offering 42 languages as well as Chinese as a foreign language and a wide spectrum of other special courses.

The objectives of the Institute are:

  • Promoting the Chinese language and Culture to the Belgian and European public.
  • Strengthening the Chinese-Belgian, and the Chinese-European friendship relations
  • The stimulation and development of multicultural exchanges
  • The Institute also wishes to contribute to a peaceful and harmonious society.

Its main responsibility consists of organising Chinese language and Culture courses, conferences concerning the Chinese Language and Culture, language and culture courses in China, the training of teachers specialising in Chinese as a foreign language, as well as offering pedagogical support, and contributing to the diffusion of information concerning the Chinese civilisation.
