Classes and Tutoring

Webster University For-Credit Classes

chinese class
Students at Webster University can study Chinese formally through the intermediate level. They can also choose from an array of Chinese culture classes, such as "Martial Arts Film and Chinese Film," "Women, Gender, and Chinese Cinema," and "Learn Chinese Culture through Cooking," as well as pursue independent study options. All for-credit courses are offered through Webster University's Global Languages Cultures and Societies Department. Class availability in any given semester is determined by GLCS.

Non-Credit Classes

The Confucius Institute at Webster University is now offering a virtual version of our Chinese language and culture class for kids age 6-14. Classes will be held via Zoom. Students will be grouped in small pods of roughly 5 students. Classes will be twice per week, with exact times being worked out after the registration deadline. The cost will be $6/class, which is $72 per six-week session. 

Tutoring for Webster Students and Staff/Faculty


Online, 1-on-1 tutoring is available to all Webster students enrolled in a Chinese language course at no extra charge. Students are highly encouraged to sign up for this service on a weekly basis. Webster University staff and faculty interested in learning Chinese are also welcome to register for tutoring sessions. Faculty have successfully utilized this service in the past to learn basic Chinese prior to visiting Webster campuses in China.
