As China’s economy and exchanges with the world have seen rapid growth, there has also been a sharp increase in the world’s demands for Chinese learning. Benefiting from the UK, France, Germany and Spain’s experience in promoting their national languages, China began its own exploration through establishing non-profit public institutions which aim to promote Chinese language and culture in foreign countries in 2004: these were given the name the Confucius Institute.

The first Confucius Institute was established in November 2004 in Seoul, South Korea.By the end of 31rd Dec. 2017, there were 525 Confucius Institutes in 138 countries and regions, 1113 Confucius Classrooms in 79 countries.
