‘Mandarin is easy’ says Jiankun Wang from the Confucius Institute, whom I met at the Languages Show on Saturday.

This week for learning agreement time, you are going to be looking at Mandarin中文 and Beijing 北京 China 中国.

You need to get practicing your Mandarin 中文 characters. Especially numbers and the compass points 指南针. Learning 4 new characters off by heart by the end of the week. Here’s a great website;

Look at finishing your letters to the Beijing No.2 Experimental Primary School. We have recieved some lovely letters and are going to start to reply this week.

Research Beijing 北京, we are going to create a display for the wall all about Beijing. How can you contribute to this?

Why not try drawings, photos, presentations, posters, projects, models, make a book, paper cutting, calligraphy.

Look up the kind of things that interest you; cars, food, schools, fashion, books, TV, films, sports, history, buildings to name a few.

Here are some websites for kids about Beijing 北京;
