In the last lesson before King's Day, students from the lower and middle classes held the "King's Day Free Market" together. Everyone wore orange or red, white and blue costumes, and brought spare toys to school to swap with classmates. Trading on the "market" is in full swing! Some teachers also brought their own toys and books to give away.

In addition, because April 22 is "Earth Day", students from different groups studied and discussed together. The students watched the video and actively answered the questions about Earth Day. Everyone has not only learned, but also practiced their Chinese listening and speaking skills!

On June 19, 2021, the Chinese Education Center (CON) organized the HSK exams in Amsterdam, in collaboration with the Confucius Institute Groningen. The CON usually does this twice a year. Due to the coronavirus, it only happened once this year.


As an extra service for our students, the CON has helped them with the registration and preparation. For example, the CON prints the admission ticket and lends out the special 2B pencils. When the HSK certificates are ready, we will also hand them out personally or send them to the students.


About 130 students took part in the HSK exams this time, from level 1 to 6. Not only CON students, but also many other students from all over the Netherlands came to Amsterdam.


If you also want to follow the Chinese lesson with us, you can register for our summer course or the autumn semester.
