Our Mandarin Chinese PPA Cover Programme is thought for Children From Early Years to Key Stage 2. All our teachers are Qualified MFL Teachers or Native Speaking Instructors. We believe strongly in making language classes fun,therefore, we involve a mix of music, songs, games, stories, videos and role-play. In addition, we have combined the most popular topics with environmental education. This will reinforce the importance of environment preservation, as well as developing our young children‘s Green Skills while learning another language.
