PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MEP EDUBLOGS SITE IS NO LONGER UPDATED REGULARLY. PLEASE REFER TO THE IOE CI MANDARIN RESOURCES FOR SCHOOLS (MARS) PLATFORM INSTEAD.
The Mandarin Excellence Programme is part of the UK Government’s drive to extend opportunity and access to Mandarin for young people, whatever their background.
As leading educators in Mandarin, schools on the programme will see their secondary school pupils studying Mandarin for eight hours a week over the course of the next four years – a significant increase on the time pupils currently spend on the subject. This blog has been set up to share ideas, pedagogy, activities and resources with you, and to act as a platform for you to openly share any materials, ideas, reflections you would like to share with the Mandarin teaching community on the internet.
Teachers who are not participating on the MEP are also welcome to use this site.
