I wanted to let everyone know about the Confucius Institute, if you haven't heard of it already.

It's an initiative to promote learning Chinese across the world. There are Confucius Institutes running classes/events in many, many Universities including UTD. See link:http://www.utdallas.e...
They are pretty well-rounded and have heaps of online videos, articles and audio too.

Why you should check out The Confucius Institute:
- They run classes here in Dallas http://www.utdallas.e...
(We may still be able to enroll, I contacted them to check, classes already started 1/19-4/27, cost $260-300.)

- Online Learning Resources: http://adult.chinese....
Chinese Bridge Competitions: http://cs.chinesebrid...
Confucius Institute Scholarship:
For Kids try: http://learning.chine...

- Chinese Chat (two different events)
1. ) Confucius Salon, FREE, held monthly on Saturdays[masked] *I'm waiting for response on dates.
2.) Chinese Corner, FREE, held every Wednesday 6.30-8.30 *Also awaiting details.

- Formal Testing recognized in China and abroad: (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi 汉语水平考试/HSK)
http://english.hanban... *See bottom of page for "Download Resources" button too!
Also they hold Business Chinese Test (BCT) and the Youth Chinese Test (YCT). Relatively cheap $100 or so to sit exam.

Information overload??.... Oops!
