The Chinese Language & Culture College of Beijing Normal University is founded on the basis of the Chinese Teaching Center (1965—1996) and the College for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language (1996—2000). The college has nearly 40 years of experience teaching Chinese as a second language.

As Beijing Normal University's important gateway to the world, the Chinese Language & Culture College shoulders the responsibility of teaching foreign students (including undergraduate students, long-term students and short-term students) coming to China to study Chinese language and culture. The college also fosters the native and foreign post-graduate students majoring in linguistics and applied linguistics and/or Chinese language and character study. In addition, the university provides training for teachers teaching Chinese as a second language and also promotes research in this field. The college is a comprehensive teaching and research institute, admitting more than 1,000 foreign students every year.

北京师范大学“汉语文化学院”是在原“对外汉语教学中心”(1965—1996)和“对外汉语教育学院”(1996-2000)的基础上建立的。在把汉语作为第二语言进行教学方面,我们已经有了近40年的经验。

汉语文化学院作为北师大对外开放的一个重要窗口,担负着培养前来学习汉语和中国文化的各国留学生(其中包括本科生和长期、短期语言生)以及“语言学及应用语言学”、“汉语言文字学”两个专业的中外博士研究生、硕士研究生的教学任务,同时,还担负着培训国内外汉语教学师资以及有关对外汉语教学学科学术研究的任务。学院以教学和科研为主体,是一个综合性的教学研究实体,每年在我院学习的各种类型的留学生千余名。

The college has a well-structured placement system. New students take placement exams that help assign them to classes of different levels according to their Chinese proficiency. Students who have very different developments in their oral and reading abilities may choose courses across grades accordingly. After dividing the students into different classes, the students have 2 weeks to attend their courses and decide if they are suitable. Students studying Chinese in the college for 6 months or more will be put into the classes of the 4-year undergraduate system. For example, they will be placed in classes numbered 100 to 402. 100 is the preparatory class for students who have not learned Chinese before. 101 and 402 represent the first semester of the first grade and the second semester of the fourth grade respectively. Students of different classes but of the same level have the same teaching materials, keep the same pace of teaching progress and take the same examination. Before each semester ends, students can evaluate their teacher's teaching. The undergraduate students take courses based on the credit system.

The courses can be divided into the following 3 types: courses on language skills, linguistics, and Chinese literature and culture. Some of the courses are compulsory and some are optional. Language skills courses include reading, oral class, listening comprehension, newspaper and magazine reading, etc.; linguistics courses mainly include modern Chinese, ancient Chinese and language theory; Chinese literature and culture courses mainly include Chinese modern literature, Chinese society and customs, etc. The college also offers business Chinese and executive Chinese for diplomats and businessmen working in China . Students may also take electives such as HSK preparation, Chinese calligraphy, Chinese painting and Wushu.
