Learn Mandarin The Fun Way!

Are you learning or teaching Mandarin? I have developed different worksheets and 57 pictures of different settings you can talk about in class. I based my work on an ESL pack I developed and thought it could be equally effectively used for different languages. The worksheets are in English and your students need to find the Mandarin equivalents. There is an end of lesson fun game where the students show their knowledge in a game of Bingo.

Multicultural Bundle

Multicultural Bundle

I have created presentations about different aspects of living in harmony with other people from other nations. It is great for harmony day and also the International Day For The Elimination Of Racial Discrimination. I have included a range of different presentations of different countries around the world. You are able to compare and contrast lives in other places. I have included stories from India, as this is the largest ethnic minority in the UK, and I thought it would be nice to see the differences and similarities between the two countries. I have also included 2 presentations about the Brexit (Brexit Conversation Ideas and International Day For the Elimination of Racial Discrimination - which covers Britain pre- and post Brexit and its crime rates).
