Mandarin/Chinese A-Levels in LondonWatch
I'm having alot of trouble finding a good sixth form or college that does Mandarin in London.
It's a subject that I really enjoy, and I would really like to carry it on after GCSE. I been searching for soooo long (since end of Year 10, I'm in Year 11 now) and just thought I should try my luck asking on this forum. I've called up about 8 colleges that I thought or heard did Mandarin and the only one that I found was Brighton College. Of course, I need more options, preferably schools that I don't need to do boarding.
I appreciate any help on Colleges/Sixth Forms that do Mandarin in London or in Essex (where I live, but I don't mind in London since I currently school in East London anyways).
EDIT: IF anyone knows any information about Chinese lessons outside college too, please tell me.
You could always book classes and do it out of school in a center or something :]
i am a year 12 student.
well my school opened mandarin course for some high school kids this septermber(for which year i am not so sure but i will find out :] )
they haven't got mandarin class for sixth form students yet and don't know if they are going to.
i am a chinese girl and i am going to take the exam next summer for both AS and A2 without taking the actual lessons.
cause iam not sure if my school gona open the coure so I would suggest you,
why not take a mandarine course outside the school and take the exam. iam sure most of the schools can make that.
there are many chinese community associations in london. I know the one LCCA in central london near stockwell. they have got good saturday mandarine classes.
Yeah, I was thinking about doing classes outside school, but then I thought it would be quite stressful. I'm kinda wondering how reliable it would be, like if I'm likely to pass this way. It's abit scary, hehe.
Nonetheless, I'll research about the LCCA classes
If you're looking for a sixthform that does mandarin as a proper subject mine does. I do mandarin at AS and its amazing, my school specializes in languages and english. The chinese teachers are great too. My school is in South London.
Hi, I actually I'm in the same situation as you. So I was wondering if you've got any reply from anyone or you find out a good college sixth form where they do mandarin. Can you please give me any information if you have.Thank you
Ask your college / sixth form to allow you to register
