A gentleman does not promote one whose words are pleasant to his ear, neither does he disdain one's correct words for one being an unpleasant man.
What are Confucius Classrooms?
Confucius Classrooms are local hubs that stimulate and support the innovative teaching and learning of Chinese language and culture. They are cooperative projects between an existing Confucius Institute and local educational institutions based on their common goal of enhancing intercultural understanding. By nature, the Confucius Classroom is a branch of the Confucius Institute and they carry out the same mission.
Through the joint efforts of China and the Confucius Institute host countries in addition to the enthusiasm and active support of people all over the world, by the end of 2010, there have been 322 Confucius Institutes and 369 Confucius Classrooms established in 96 countries. In addition, some 250 institutions from over 50 countries have expressed requirements for establishing Confucius Institutes/Classrooms, amongst them some of the world's top universities.
