Since 2008, The Wales China Schools Project has been delivering a range of different courses and opportunities to schools including taster sessions, China clubs, qualifications and trips to China.
With the changing landscape of Modern Foreign Languages in Wales, and the forthcoming introduction of the new curriculum, many Primary and Secondary schools are now looking to find ways in which to introduce Mandarin into their curriculum.
To showcase how this has been achieved in schools across Wales, Cardiff Confucius Institute has produced a collection of 5 case studies, written by teachers in schools highlighting the different ways in which Mandarin has enhanced their curriculum and encouraged pupil engagement.
It is hoped that 'Showcasing Mandarin in Welsh Schools - A Case Collection' will help to demonstrate the positive impact of including Mandarin in the curriculum and provide ideas for schools who may be looking to do the same.
Showcasing Mandarin in Welsh Schools
The case studies cover, Learning Languages through culture, Mandarin and Inclusivity, Progression for post-16 students of Mandarin, Promoting Chinese Language and Culture through Project based-learning and Mandarin Qualifications.
