Our GCSE Chinese (spoken Mandarin) specification has been created with teachers to ensure our assessments are clear and accessible, with a range of topics which aim to expand students’ cultural knowledge.
Students will be tested in listening, reading, speaking and writing and will develop transferable skills, relevant to further study and the world of work. The range of topics within the specification aims to inspire students who are interested in Chinese culture and Chinese (Mandarin) speaking countries.
We’ve also created a variety of resources to support you in planning, teaching and assessing this specification, in a way that stimulates and motivates your students.
