Study Chinese, discover China
with the support of the
Confucius Institute, University of Miskolc!
Chinese is the most spoken language in the world with 1.31 billion speakers. Chinese companies expand in Europe and the demand for Chinese speaking employees increase significantly in the last years.
The University of Miskolc has offered organized, institutionalized Chinese language and cultural teaching since 2012. In the first year, a minor centre hosted the trainings; afterwards the third Confucius Institute of Hungary was established in August 2013. The uniqueness of our institute is that two Chinese partners contributed to the foundation. On our platform two higher education institutions (universities) and one company work together. This way of cooperation is unprecedented in the global network of Confucius Institutes.
The educational and cultural partnership between the University of Miskolc and the Beijing University of Chemical Technology is supplemented by the Wanhua-BorsodChem Industrial Holding (Yantai-Kazincbarcika).
The CI together with the Chinese Language Foundation also organizes 2-weeks-long summer camps in China, Beijing for the registered students who have completed at least one of our Chinese courses for one semester ages between 15 to 65.
Prof. Jie Liu (Kristina, 刘杰)
“God helps those who help themselves!"
Liu Jie (Kristina) is coming from Beijing. She is professor in the College of Humanities and Law of Beijing University of Chemical Technology, PhD in history. She enjoys learning different languages; so far she has learnt English, Japanese, French and Hungarian. There is an idiom in China: 井底之蛙 [jǐng dǐ zhī wā] which means a person with a limited outlook on life is just like a frog living at the bottom of a well. Knowing people from different parts of the world may open my mind, that is why I am working here as the Chinese director of Confucius Institute.

CI provides Chinese language courses in different levels, where we focus on speaking, grammar and writing characters. In addition, we offer Chinese cultural lessons and calligraphy occasionally, and other interesting programs to give an impression from China and its unique culture.

Chinese Proficiency Written Test (HSK)
Chinese Proficiency Written Test (HSK), an international standardized test of Chinese language proficiency, assesses non-native Chinese speakers’ abilities in using the Chinese language in their daily, academic and professional lives. HSK consists of six levels, namely HSK (level I), HSK (level II), HSK (level III), HSK (level IV), HSK (level V), and HSK (level VI).
Chinese Proficiency Oral Test (HSKK)
HSK Speaking Test (HSKK) assesses the test takers’ oral Chinese abilities. HSKK consists of three levels, HSKK (Primary level), HSKK (Intermediate level) and HSKK (Advanced level). HSKK is conducted in the form of audio recording.
In about three years of studying Chinese with us at a normal pace you can reach from a beginner level to intermediate. On this intermediate level you are already able to express your feelings, needs and capable of dealing with familiar topics and short conversations. You can deal with most situations likely to arise when travelling in China.
