Mandarin

LEO Academy Trust take part in a programme with My Chinese Teacher, who aim to teach children Mandarin Chinese. We are very proud to be able to offer this opportunity for children within the Trust.

Mandarin Chinese is the most widely spoken language in the world and has become a very valuable and highly sought after skill. Given China’s rapid economic growth and emergence as a major global powerhouse, Mandarin is considered to be the most important of ‘tomorrow’s languages’. Learning Mandarin opens up more opportunities to work, communicate, and understand a country that will continue to play an important role in the world’s future.

The My Chinese Teacher programme is one of the world’s most popular Chinese language programmes used by schools. Interactive lessons are delivered live from Beijing, with Chinese teachers using video conferencing technology, providing students with an authentic Chinese experience along with real world context. The programme allows children a unique opportunity to develop a global perspective and gain the valuable language skills required to broaden their opportunities for the future.
