Learning check - Mandarin Chinese beginners

Learning check - Mandarin Chinese beginners

A booklet taking students through basic phrases and vocabulary. I use this in class in the last few lessons or sometimes give to more independent students to complete over a holiday period. I’ve also used it to assess learning with new students if they’re not absolute beginners. Developed for upper primary but would also be good consolidation for secondary.

End of year Year 7 quiz/game

End of year Year 7 quiz/game

These are the questions for an End of Year 7 (1st year of Chinese) quiz. The questions go with a game similar to Jenga which you can buy at Australian Kmarts called Bugs Building. It has 3 colours and a dice with the colours on. Students roll the dice and whichever colour they roll they have to answer a question from that pile. If they can answer correct they can play a piece in the colour of the question they answered. *Could also be used as quiz questions without the game.

Clothes 'Follemathiques' starter

Clothes 'Follemathiques' starter

Whole-class activity, which could become pairwork. Instead of saying, for example, “2 plus 3”, you say, “une robe plus des chaussures”. Students’ answers would then be “une veste”, instead of “5”. Make the calculation as complicated as you like!

Learn Mandarin The Fun Way!

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.
