After school Mandarin club | 课后汉语班

Fitting into the existing after school activities, a Mandarin Club is relatively easy to set up, and offers an opportunity for students to raise their interests and enthusiasm. We provide tutors, materials and the club free of charge.

The 'Chinese for Fun' after school club is an extra-curricular activity, providing a fun and informative way of introducing Chinese language and culture to students of all ages, and is provided free of charge.

Our tutors develop curriculum and session plans, go to schools and deliver the clubs. Please note, travel expenses may be passed onto the school depending on the distance we need to travel.

The club is designed for schools that do not yet have the capacity to introduce Chinese and China-related work, but see this as important addition to established offerings.

It can be seen as an initial step to gauge interest among students and parents for this new and exciting subject.

We suggest that one after school club is limited to 20 students and that the age range within each group is not too large. If a school intends to provide a second Mandarin after school club, the fee is £2 per one-hour session per student (minimum 10 students).

Students who enjoy Mandarin and want to continue studying may be interested in our affiliated Star Mandarin School, which takes place at the University of Sheffield on Saturdays.

We accept students aged 3.5—18, and is aimed for GCSE Chinese and GCE (A Level) Chinese qualifications.
