Bring Chinese language and culture alive in your classroom
Language assistants can improve your students’ language skills, as well as developing their cultural awareness and understanding of the world.
As Chinese Mandarin is set to be one of the most vital languages to the UK and internationally, it has never been more important to connect young people in the UK with China. Not only will a knowledge of China and Chinese culture open up a world of opportunities for your students, but an ability to communicate in Mandarin will make them stand out from the crowd.

Make a real difference
All Chinese language assistants are either qualified and experienced teachers, or graduates in teaching Chinese as a foreign Language or related qualifications, with at least one year’s experience teaching overseas.
Their experience means that Chinese Language Assistants can further support the development of Mandarin in your school’s curriculum, or even introduce Mandarin to students who may never have experienced learning the language before.
Hosting a language assistant would also allow your school to qualify for the Foundation level International School Award.
