Our school has carefully selected the best text books published by Sky Mandarin and approved by both of Dept of Education and the Overseas Community Affairs Council in Taiwan.  The advantage of this series of books is that they include both of Traditional and Simplified Chinese characters as well as two phonetic systems - zhu yin and pinyin to help our young learners to master the language.  I've always wished my children could learn both systems and these books turn my dream into reality!  We also use Speak Mandarin in 1000 wordsSpeak Mandarin in 500 words, Happy Chinese, Hello HuaYu and Children's Chinese readers to cater for different ages/classes. 

Our school run three terms per year as most schools in Ireland. Our classes are 14 weeks between Sept. to Dec. and 20 weeks between Jan. to Jun. each year.

Please contact us for further information and we would love to arrange a meeting to discuss syllabus with you.


Transition Year Work Experience

We offer places for Transition Year students who is either a heritage speaker or has been studied Mandarin Chinese in junior cycle.


Our Aim is to encourage our next generation to have the interests in the Chinese culture and to have the ability to listen, to speak, to read and to write (both by hand and computer) in Mandarin Chinese. I personally think this skill will be the best present I could ever give to my own children.


Our Methods of teaching are through creative activities like ICT, puppet shows, play, songs, games, story, video and different culture activities to make learning Mandarin Chinese fun and easy for our children. I want to make it as much child/student centred as possible because each child is different and so is their learning styles.
