Mandarin Excellence Programme Visit

On Wednesday 13th December, the College was visited by Lin, a Research Fellow from the University College London as part of a showcase for our work on the Mandarin Excellence Programme. The programme aims to increase the number students studying Mandarin and to deliver a minimum of 5,000 new speakers with a high level of fluency by 2020. Lin sat in on Mr Edward’s Year 7 Mandarin class and was delighted to hear the students speaking, singing and playing games in Mandarin using words they have been learning throughout the year. The photos and video below are from the class and shows the students writting in Mandarin and performing a song called Wo de pengyou zai nali (Where is my friend?)
