Secondary Mandarin Up-skilling Level 2 Course - Teacher CPD
Our up-skilling course is for secondary language teachers who are currently teaching Mandarin to Key Stage 3 level and wish to progress to Key Stage 4. This CPD course for teachers takes into account the fact that delegates already have advanced language-learning skills, understand grammatical structures and wish to fast-track their learning. This course is for language teachers with some knowledge of Mandarin.
This course focuses on:
- All four skills, speaking and listening, reading and writing.
- Grammatical structures and tenses, including how Mandarin marks some past actions, and future events and the more complex conjunctions than those used in Key Stage 3.
- Acquiring vocabulary and structures aligned to the Key Stage 4 curriculum and an overview of progression to GCSE Chinese.
This is a 3 day course which will run on Saturdays throughout 2018. The second and third dates will be mutually agreed between all delegates and Theresa. Delegates may sign up to each day as it is scheduled or all three for a discount.
Dr. Theresa Munford: BA (Hons) Chinese Durham University: diploma in Chinese Nanjing University: PRC, PhD Chinese History Australian National University: PGCE Secondary Roehampton Institute.
Prior to teaching in schools, Theresa worked and studied in Asia for many years: she has taught Mandarin across the age ranges, and has mentored and trained teachers at Primary and Secondary level. A regular speaker at conferences for teachers of Chinese, Theresa has helped develop resources and has been involved in the steady growth of Chinese as a school curriculum subject over the last decade.
She believes strongly that Mandarin Chinese is an accessible language; that the spoken language can be taught efficiently and effectively; and that technology has enabled non-native speakers to attain levels of literacy in Chinese that in the past would have required many years of study.
Feedback from teachers on Theresa’s course
This has been a lovely, thorough course - thank you.
The course content and Theresa were both excellent. I would recommend this to teachers wishing to teach Mandarin.
Excellent idea to have link-global on-line classroom as part of the package.
A very thorough, enjoyable and brilliant course.
The whole course has been excellent and although it was challenging, I have enjoyed it.
I have learnt so much in 3 days. I feel ready to teach this to my key stage 3 students.
