Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language (Mandarin or Cantonese) is a teacher training programme which aims to train well qualified Chinese (Mandarin or Cantonese) teachers in order to cope with the fast-growing demand of Chinese teachers in the UK. This programme emphasizes practical skills and effective strategies for teaching groups, individuals, adults and children.
The course is suitable for those who wish to become Chinese teachers and also for teachers who want to refresh and enhance their teaching techniques. Certificate of Achievement issued by Ming-Ai (London) Institute will only be given to successful students (pass compulsory and overall assessments and meet 80% or above attendance rate).All students will have a chance to become tutors of Ming-Ai (London) Institute and be recommended to other educational institutes. Some students in our previous Mandarin Teacher Training Courses have become our tutors now and some of them have got jobs in UK schools, Chinese Community schools or being a private tutor.
With the improvement of comprehensive national strength, Chinese people who have a great desire for knowledge, are increasingly eager in understanding and studying world culture systematically. Museums and art galleries are some of the best ways for them to learn about the culture. The trend enhances the importance and charm of being a Mandarin docent in a museum and art galleries context.
Seeing such strong demand in the market, Ming-Ai (London) Institute and the UK China Culture Education Association decided to hold a short course on Docent Training (Mandarin Speaking) from November 18, 2019.
