MTSU To Offer Chinese Classes

Tennessee students in grades two through five will be able to get lessons in the Chinese language through a program at Middle Tennessee State University.

“A Bridge for Better Understanding: Chinese Language and Culture” is a 16-lesson series beginning Sept. 13 and airing weekly through April 18. It’s part of the school’s Confucius Institute and Center for Educational Media.

The lessons will be cablecast in Murfreesboro and several surrounding counties and also in Huntsville, Ala.

Additionally, the programs will be beamed via satellite to 20 Tennessee counties, and those programs will be webcast across the state.
