KALAMAZOO--The Confucius Institute at Western Michigan University is offering free Chinese language tutoring to members of the local community.
Tutoring is being provided from 3 to 4 p.m. every Monday and Thursday on WMU's main campus in Room 2152 of Dunbar Hall. These drop-in sessions are open to all area Chinese language learners. No registration is required.
Established in 2009, the Confucius Institute was created through a partnership between WMU and Beijing Language and Culture University.
The institute is a non-profit organization created to provide new Chinese language and cultural studies options for WMU students and faculty and to dramatically expand international opportunities for regional K-12 schools and businesses. It is the fourth such institution in Michigan and the 61st to be founded in the United States.
