The Confucius Institute won Global Excellent Test Site
The sudden epidemic in 2020 has brought unprecedented challenges to the organization of Chinese tests. However, all Chinese teachers and Russian employees of the Confucius Institute at Far Eastern Federal University have overcome the difficulties of the epidemic. While conducting face-to-face international Chinese teaching courses, three offline Chinese proficiency tests were held as scheduled in accordance with the annual work plan of the Confucius Institute. Teachers and five Russian employees all participated in the examination work. The number of examinees reached 1,089 throughout the year, and the number of candidates was among the best in Russia's Confucius Institutes. The Examination Center of the Confucius Institute at Far Eastern Federal University, in addition to holding the Chinese proficiency test in Vladivostok, has also set up three test centers in Ussuriysk, Nakhodka, and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. Each time the Confucius Institute holds an exam, the Confucius Institute specially arranges Chinese teachers to organize the exam at three sub-examination sites, and act as the chief examiner and invigilator. He has done a lot of work in providing Chinese language proficiency test services for more local Chinese language learners, preparing Chinese language learners to study in China, and providing opportunities for employment, etc., which has been well received by teachers, students and people from all walks of life
