As part of our broader curriculum at The Henry Beaufort School, we are very pleased to be able to offer Mandarin Chinese as a Modern Foreign Language in addition to French, German or Spanish. We also currently offer Mandarin Chinese to students from our local partnership school – The Westgate School.
We recognise that in an ever-changing world, we want our students to understand and appreciate different cultures and countries and to think of themselves as citizens of the world. In a rapidly changing world in which we live and work, being able to communicate in a foreign language not only will open doors to where you can live but will future career prospects.
Our Mandarin Chinese curriculum journey will cover:-
- Describing yourself
- Describing your family
- Food and drink
- Describing where you live
We also strongly encourage students who speak Cantonese and Mandarin as their first language to take a GCSE course in Mandarin.
