Mandarin

There has probably never been a more relevant time to study the Chinese Language. In recent years China has undergone a transformation from rural economy into a major industrial superpower and its global influence continues to spread.

Hampton offers an exciting and fun learning environment in which students enjoy the challenge of this fascinating language.

We offer all boys a taster course which gives them an introduction to Chinese culture as well as language, and many boys opt to study Chinese to GCSE level and beyond. We are delighted that the results of boys taking GCSE and A Level are consistently excellent.

Co-Curricular

The Department arranges a biennial trip to Beijing.

We also run a weekly lunchtime club, packed with games, music, cultural input, film clips and other interesting activities, aiming to help students to learn more about the background to Chinese Mandarin and to practise their language skills.
