Minister launches new course in Chinese Language and Culture for Transition Year Students

A transition unit on Chinese language and culture has been developed jointly by the NCCA and the UCD Confucius Institute. The unit is designed to introduce students to both traditional and modern aspects of Chinese culture and to support students learning some of the Chinese language.

These materials will be available to download from this site shortly, along with more detailed information on the unit and the way it can be used in schools nationwide.

Thank you for your interest in the work of our Institute.
