Mandarin at Schools


One of the missions for the CI at the University of Sheffield is to provide supports to local schools, including primary schools, secondary school, school academy and independent schools, in starting and developing the teaching and learning of Mandarin Chinese and Chinese Culture, as well as the study of China across areas of school curriculum. 

Mandarin Chinese Subject, within School Curriculum, FREE

Advice, support and taster sessions can be initially given to school that is looking into offering Mandarin Chinese to their school pupils and to their surrounding linking or feeder schools. Further support include providing Mandarin teachers, developing Mandarin teaching programmes, working together on school curriculum, sharing teaching resources and leading on the delivery of Mandarin provisions.

"Chinese for Fun", After School Mandarin Club, FREE 

Not just childcare, but also gauging interests among pupils and parents for the new and exciting Mandarin subject, After School Mandarin Club is probably the easiest way introducing the language at school. We provide tutors, materials and sessions FREE of charge.

"China Day" Activity at school 

We support school in understanding Chinese language and culture through a range of different activities including workshop packages like "China Day" Activity for both primary schools and secondary schools.

Mandarin for School Teachers, Staff and Parents, FREE

We support school staff and teachers, in better understanding Mandarin linguistic features and cultural implications for teaching and learning Mandarin at school. Taster session(s) or Mandarin classes can be offered FREE of charge.
