Mandarin Chinese Conference

A conference for all schools interested in the teaching of Mandarin Chinese will be held on Friday 8 February 2019 at Devonshire House Preparatory School, 2 Arkwright Road, London NW3 6AE.

The conference will begin at 12:30 and end at 15:30, with a complimentary Chinese lunch provided.

After a brief introduction to Mandarin Chinese, the focus of the conference will be on phasing Mandarin Chinese into a Key Stage 2 and 3 curriculum, exploring the teaching resources available for both in and out of the classroom. This will be followed by a closer look at the content of ISEB's Online Assessment in Mandarin Chinese (Levels 1 and 2), after which there will be an explanation and demonstration of how the online assessments work.

A flyer for the conference can be found here, and the full programme is available here.

Please note that ISEB's Online Assessment in Mandarin Chinese may be taken as a single subject by candidates who are not taking Common Entrance examinations in other subjects.

This conference is being funded by ISEB in conjunction with Dragons Teaching, and there is therefore no charge for attendance, although numbers will be strictly limited. Please book your place by logging on to our registration website, using the same log in details as those used when registering Common Entrance candidates.

The closing date for registrations is Friday 18 January 2019.
