In recent years, the fever of learning Chinese language has kept rising across the world. Confucius Institutes and Confucius Classrooms worldwide play an undeniable role in the process of bringing Chinese language and Chinese culture closer to the international community. At present, there are 525 Confucius Institutes worldwide, among which 173 have been set up in 41 European countries. This shows the enthusiasm of the European people for learning Chinese and their deep interest in Chinese culture. These Confucius Institutes and Confucius Classrooms use Chinese language as a medium and Chinese culture as a bridge to help enhance friendship between people in China and Europe.
