Any Teacher can teach Mandarin Chinese!


An accessible and sensory introduction to primary Chinese studies. China Box overcomes traditional language barriers to enhance any primary school's curriculum.


No Chinese Teacher? No Problem!



In 2018, Mandarin overtook German in the UK for A-Level entries.

It's easy to get started and any member of your teaching staff will be able to deliver the fun, playful scheme.
1. Enhance Other Subjects
A great way to introduce Mandarin to the School instead of, or as well as teaching regular lessons.

Finish a maths lesson by counting in Chinese, colour a dragon boat in art, or go global in geography finding Chinese rivers and cities.
2. Establish Mandarin 'Club'
Any teacher or TA (not just Language Leads) can teach or deliver a 'China ‘Club’ with China Box.

A powerful way to offer substantially more to interested parents & pupils with or without including the subject in classroom time.
3. Teach Regular Lessons
Familiarise your pupils with a global language they may choose in secondary school for their GCSE.

Work through lesson plans once/twice a week (or more!) Revisit sections at discretion, and enjoy adding your own teaching flair.
