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.
