  On May 29, the preliminary of the 14th CHINESE BRIDGE Chinese Proficiency Competition for Foreign Secondary School Students (Hungary), sponsored by the Chinese Embassy in Hungary and organized by the Independent Confucius Classroom jointly built by CNU and the Hungarian-Chinese Bilingual School, was held.

  Inges Dorina, Grade 9 student from the Hungarian-Chinese Bilingual School, stood out from many other contestants and won the title. Many media platforms, including the People’s Daily Overseas Edition, the Xinhua News Agency and the Economic Daily, reported on wonderful moments of this competition.

  Hungarian-Chinese Bilingual School, founded in September 2004, is a full-time public school jointly established by the Chinese and Hungarian governments. Initially, there were only 87 students. In September 2016, with the strong support of the 2 governments, the school was expanded from an 8-year-program school to a 12-year-program full-time school offering both primary and secondary programs. Here, students can systematically learn Chinese from primary school to high school. In 2017, the Independent Confucius Classroom jointly built by CNU and the Hungarian-Chinese Bilingual School was officially inaugurated. Up to now, it has more than 510 students at all grades.

  The holding of this competition is strong affirmation of excellent achievements made by the Independent Confucius Classroom jointly built by CNU and the Hungarian-Chinese Bilingual School and also highlights the importance of the Independent Confucius Classroom in central and eastern Europe. The event also strongly promotes the exchange between Confucius Institutes and Confucius Classrooms in Chinese language teaching and Chinese culture in central and eastern Europe.
