CONFUCIUS CHINESE SCHOOL

Chinese In Wales Association has collaborated with the Confucius Institute at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David to set up The Confucius Institute Chinese School in Swansea. It now has over 150 pupils aged between 4 and 16.  There are two hour classes every Sunday during term time in the morning or afternoon to offer flexibility to parents. The school has professionally trained teachers. Some come from the local community and some are provided by Hanban, the Chinese Government’s education, and language division. The school follows a carefully structured curriculum, following Hanban’s recommendations while also taking into account the needs of the Welsh educational system and preparation for Mandarin GCSE.

The Confucius Institute Chinese School welcomes children of all backgrounds who would like to learn Mandarin and experience Chinese culture. Although most of our pupils are from Chinese families living in South Wales, we also have a number of Welsh background pupils. The school welcomes all who share an interest in China!

Chinese has fast become the language of global work opportunities. Pupils at the school develop important life skills by becoming fluent speakers of Chinese. For Chinese background pupils, the school aims to develop a deep sense of connection to their Chinese roots, culture, and heritage.

School class structure

Classes are structured from Levels I to IV, following the Chinese language curriculum developed by Hanban. After their initial level test, pupils are placed in classes according to their ability in speaking, listening, reading and writing. Classes try to reflect age range as much as possible.
