School Clubs

Give children a fantastic head start, sharpening their minds and opening their eyes to a colourful and different culture. Children learn through playing, singing songs and activities, and have the opportunity to pronounce Mandarin as perfectly as a native speaker.

It will focus on ensuring all children are having an enjoyable time together and learning. Lessons can take place at an agreed time, and there will be minimal homework.

We use Independent Schools Examinations Board syllabuses SYLLABUSES and here are some specimen papers for level 1 and level 2 you can download SPECIMEN PAPERS

Contents Language

In every lesson, we’ll learn new words. Students will hear teacher speaking them and practising them, then linking to meaningful sentences with words they've learned already, so it’s fun and entertaining for them.

Writing

Students will learn how to write new words, with step-by-step instructions on how to form Chinese character.

Culture

One of the fun parts about learning any new language is learning about the country it comes from – the people, the food, how they live and much more besides. In each lesson, we’ll be giving you an insight into Chinese culture.

Practice

This is their opportunity to hear, repeat and then practice the words they’ve learned as many times as they’d like after at home following audio images linked on our website.
