"Three groups will be recruited with different levels of proficiency – from beginner to advanced. The number of places is limited, since these will not be traditional lectures, but practical classes, direct communication with the teacher. We plan to recruit groups in which there will be no more than 15 people", – the director of Confucius Institute of Tomsk State University Artyom Dankov is quoted.

Free classes will be conducted by native speakers – employees of the SLU Institute of International Education, the duration of the training will be one month. Listeners will receive a large amount of audio and video content, and technology will help to maximize their involvement in learning. For example, a student can scan a QR code from a presentation and follow the link to take a test or go to a useful resource recommended by the teacher.
