As much as learning Mandarin Chinese in the West is new, especially in schools with children, you can still learn from others to decide how best to make it work in your school with your children. We work hard to create that knowledge and to share it collaboratively within networks of Chinese teachers, schools and policy makers. Do contact us if you think we can help even if it is just informal chat. Have a look to at our sister website The Chinese Staffroom.

Teacher - November 2009:
After your teacher was with us for a one-day taster, the corridors were buzzing with teachers and children talking Chinese and talking about Chinese. When can we start taking Chinese seriously wtih your help?
