We are taking part in ‘Discovering China’, an innovative new project run by The Confucius Institute for Scotland’s Schools in partnership with e-Sgóil.
This project will give learners the chance to be accredited by SQA for National 4 or National 5 Mandarin (simplified). The courses will also encourage candidates to explore aspects of Chinese culture as well as providing a solid linguistic foundation for learning the world’s most spoken language.
Please see Mrs Laing for more information about this course.
WHAT WILL YOU EXPERIENCE?
The lessons will be delivered by a GTCS teacher of Mandarin and live streamed into your classroom. You will therefore need your Glow password, access to the internet, a screen, audio and a projector. Participating schools will also receive the support of a fully-trained, native speaking language assistant. There will be materials available for your class to explore and use to develop all four skills – reading, writing, listening and talking.
