The IOE Confucius Institute recently held the two-part ‘Getting to grips with Mandarin grammar teaching’ course which developed the ways in which Mandarin grammar is approached in the classroom. This course applied contemporary MFL approaches to grammar teaching. The first part took a close look at the structure of grammar and the way in which it plays a role in the Mandarin language classroom, while Part Two took the understanding of grammar further to look at practical ways in which grammar can be applied in a communicative classroom.
