Year 6 enjoy two terms of a basic introduction to the Mandarin Chinese language and Asian culture. With so many senior schools now offering Mandarin, this represents a valuable opportunity for the girls to obtain an initial appreciation for the language, both in terms of the tones and characters. The most important element of the course is that it is fun! It is run by an engaging teacher – provided by Dragons in Europe – who will combine language learning with videos, games and competitions, so that the girls look forward to the classes every week.
