How to link with a school in China

Forming a link with a school in China can be an excellent way to make the learning of Mandarin and Chinese culture real. Links may involve the sharing of cultures, language and teaching experience and professional development of staff from both countries and enhancing the curriculum by supporting language awareness. By forming partnerships, schools can develop joint curriculum projects, exchange of students and teachers and develop language learning programmes together. This article explores the ways in which a school can form a link with school and how they can go about doing so.

Global Gateway

Your first stop should be the Global Gateway’s website. The Global Gateway is run by the British Council in collaboration with the DCSF. Along with many other countries the British Council create formal links with China.

The Gateway has an easy to use school search facility though the advance keyword search is easier to pinpoint particular cities that you may wish to partner with.
