These methods include: conversion of existing Confucius Classes to Confucius Institutes; the creation of new Confucius Classes by existing Confucius Institutes; initiation of the creation and actual organization of activities of teachers and teachers of the Chinese language associations in various federal districts of Russia, supporting the activities of the Association of graduates and interns of Chinese universities, etc. The author analyses the creation and functioning of various associations in the field of education in Russia: associations of teachers and teachers of Chinese, the Association graduates and interns of Chinese universities, Russian-Chinese specialized and regional associations of universities, the Association of Scientific and Technical Cooperation of the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China.
