Last week Bohunt School, one of the schools delivering Mandarin Excellence Programme, organised a speaking contest for their Year 7 class.
Students were set the task of introducing themselves, their hobbies and their family to their fellow students and the judging panel. Although students have only been learning for 3 months, they certainly did their teachers proud. The judging panel, made up of 4 Chinese teachers, were very impressed with students’ efforts.
You can listen to a selection of students presenting in Chinese here: Noah, Tim, Lois
As you can see from the picture, students thoroughly enjoyed the event. Five awards were given to the best students, with a special prize going to the most improved student.
