Confucius Classroom Opened in the Grammar School

The first specialised classroom for studying Chinese language and culture, the Confucius

Classroom, was opened on 5 October 2020 at the public institution Banja Luka Grammar School.

The Confucius Classroom was opened on the 125th anniversary of this school, under the

auspices of the Confucius Institute of the University of Banja Luka.

The Confucius Classroom is a modernly equipped classroom in which our pupils, as well as

professors, will study, in addition to Chinese, other foreign languages, and there are currently

around 60 pupils and several professors interested in studying the Chinese language.

Pupils of the Grammar Scool started to study the Chinese language in 2018, as an elective

subject, and since then there has been a great interest in learning the Chinese language. In

addition to learning the language, last year the pupils had the opportunity to travel to China for

14 days and apply what they learned there, but also to improve their knowledge of the Chinese


Banja Luka Grammar School is one of the few secondary schools in the region that in a very sort period of time got approval to open the Confucius Classroom, which is a great success for both the school and the City of Banja Luka.

The architects Diana Stupar and Maja Aleksić from the Faculty of Architecture, Civil

Engineering and Geodesy at the University of Banja Luka, who were also in charge of adapting

the premises of the Confucius Institute at the University of Banja Luka, were in charge of the

Confucius Classroom project.

Confucius Classrooms are offshoots of Confucius Institutes, and are mainly located in primary

and secondary schools. In this way, a greater number of students have the opportunity to learn

and improve their knowledge of the Chinese language and learn more about the Chinese culture through classes and different activities and projects.
