The Confucius Institute offers an extensive support program for teachers and students to develop the core knowledge, skills and understandings our young people will need to thrive and prosper in the Asian Century. Our Schools' workshops are designed specifically for schools, students and teachers who are starting out on the journey of introducing aspects of Chinese language and culture into their schools.
Our half-day workshops are designed to be a 'taster' – to get students, teachers and schools excited about learning Chinese language and culture and are often the first step when starting out to establish a quality and sustainable Chinese language program in the school curriculum.
The workshops aim to spark students' interest in Chinese language and culture and forms part of our effort to improve Chinese literacy in local schools. Workshops can be tailored to your schools needs but often consist of four interactive sessions – Chinese Language, Chinese Food, Chinese Paper Folding, and Chinese Folk Song and Dance – that are very hands-on and lots of fun for the children.
Workshops can be arranged for students at your school or for a group of students from different schools. If you are interested in arranging a students workshop please contact Confucius Institute.
Our workshops are designed to give teachers the practical skills and strategies to introduce aspects of Chinese language and culture in their schools. These hands-on workshops are for all teachers with an interest in developing their own understanding of Chinese language and culture. The sessions are built around providing examples of practical, hands-on activities that can be used in the classroom to spark the interest of students to learn more about Chinese language and culture.
