Mandarin Chinese/English target language mat. It includes common classroom instructions, verbs and adjectives for beginners. I recommend to print it on A3 size. Please note that this mat doesn't have pinyin due to limited space.

Whizzy loop

Whizzy loop

Use this whizzy loop by pressing the 's' key on your keyboard to start and stop it spinning super fast. You can change the text on the slides quite easily to suit your purposes - there is one here with numbers, one with dates and one with sentences on and several other ideas - at its simplest you can just ask pupils to translate the slide it stops on but you can use it in many, many different ways - put pupil names on it as a name selector, or sentences starters and a connective to build sentences - you choose. I have put several examples on here to help with ideas, but the concept of randomising things is the same throughout. Enjoy! The pupils LOVE coming to press the 's' key.....the simplest of things seem to please them.

57 Mandarin Setting Cards For Conversation Practice

57 Mandarin Setting Cards For Conversation Practice

Welcome to the Let’s Talk in Mandarin! pack. This set of cards looks at 57 different settings. The teacher describes something in the top card. The students then use this to model a sentence using the bottom set of pictures. There are lots of things to see and describe in every picture. When the students have completed this task, they can repeat it by working in pairs to discuss each picture. What works very well is for the two pictures to be directly projected on a wall. The teacher talks about the top picture, such as 'In my picture, I can see two seagulls flying.'... then the students model their responses, using the sentence structure provided by the teacher. There are lots of different ways you could use this pack. You could laminate them into two cards and get each student to talk about what they had seen in their picture. ***** Please note - these resources provide visual prompts and support to the students, not direct language instruction **************
