Description

In January 2008, an agreement was signed between China and Afghanistan for the establishment of a Confucius Institute at Kabul University. This project is funded by Hanban, a government organization that partners universities around the world with Chinese educational institutions to establish Confucius Institutes for the study of Chinese language and culture. The Chinese university involved with this project is Taiyuan University of Technology.On 7 April 2013 China reopened the Confucius Institute at Kabul University after it had been closed for 18 months due to instability in Afghanistan. The institute now offers Mandarin classes to around 100 Afghan beginners. There are one teacher from China and two Chinese instructors teaching mandarin at elementary levels.
