Recently, October 2016, a lovely group of Chinese learners and their friends and partners enjoyed a trip to some of the most remarkable places in East China organised by Magic Mandarin. Afterwards we were delighted to receive a lovely thank you note from the group:
We thank you sincerely [for] the memorable trip to China. All your effort and hard work to please individual expectations are remarkable. We entrust in you for the future!
Please accept a token of appreciation from all of us.
We are delighted to announce that we will start a new group of lessons for those in years 5 to 9 starting at the beginning of 2015. The lessons are structured on ‘Kuai Le Han Yu,’ which are successfully used by many schools to prepare students for the GCSE course. (Those without such preparation will probably find the GCSE Mandarin course far too challenging). Lessons will be held in small groups to allow individual attention as well as allowing students to communicate with others. They are ideally suited to those with some basic knowledge of Chinese and would like to continue their learning. Courses. All students will have a home activity book to secure knowledge and practice what they have learnt. Extra fun activities will be run during Chinese festivals and recess periods to help students appreciate Chinese culture and traditions. Lessons will run every week during term time. Free individual assessment of each student will be made. Please contact us to find out more.
Schools in East London, site of the original Chinatown, are being urged to learn Mandarin. Amongst the festivities promoting the language was a traditional dragon dance bringing must excitement to the audience. Local mayor Lutfur Rahman commented: “By the time most of the children born today leave school, China will probably be the leading economic power in the world.”
