Chinese Course for Irish Teachers


chinese course

The UCD Confucius Institute of Ireland (CII) is dedicated to the development of Chinese education in Ireland, to increase the number of teachers teaching Chinese, to strengthen these teachers’ abilities in Chinese and to improve the quality of Chinese teaching itself.

In order to cater for the growing demand of Chinese language and culture education in Irish schools the UCD CII launched training programmes for Irish teachers in 2011. These programmes aim to help Irish teachers build their capacity of independent and sustainable capacity to teach Chinese modules in their schools.

Now in conjunction with Drumcondra Education Centre, this course will be delivered locally. The course is based on small class sizes, excellent rapport between the tutor and the participants and using practical everyday examples of language and culture.

Many participants from previous courses have gone on to take official Chinese examinations and many are now teaching Chinese in their own school.

She is an experienced Chinese teacher currently teaching Chinese in UCD.
