Beijing Language and Culture University (BLCU) is located in northwest Beijing, the capital of China and the center of political, economic, cultural and international activities. The university is an ideal place to study Chinese language, history, politics and culture and it is the only international university in China whose main mission is to teach Chinese language and culture to international students.
BLCU provides teachers to the Confucius Institute at WMU on an annual basis who are trained in teaching Chinese as a foreign language and conducting Chinese culture courses. In its inaugural year, the Institute and the WMU community welcomed six teachers and Associate Director Dr. Jiwei Fu from BLCU, who greatly aided the Institute in carrying out its mission.
