What people are saying

At Queen’s Gate, we employed Dragons to introduce Mandarin to our Junior School in January 2015 and it was such an outstanding success that in September 2015, this was extended further in the Junior School and also introduced in Years 7 and 9 in the Senior School. In September 2016, Mandarin teaching will be further extended to GCSE in Year 10.
Dragons have been very well received – the staff are knowledgeable, approachable and have very good classroom presence. They make the lessons fun, whilst ensuring that the girls learn. The enthusiasm of the girls is outstanding – they really enjoy the lessons and also the interactive resources outside class. When asked why they enjoy Mandarin, the girls say that it is very different from other languages and they love the lessons.

With guidance from Marcus and the excellent teachers at Dragons, we introduced Mandarin into our curriculum in Years 4 and 5 six years ago. It has very much complemented and extended our Modern Foreign Language curriculum.

The teachers are fantastic, inspiring the girls to learn through the online resources and painting a picture of the Chinese culture. The girls have done incredibly well in the ISEB Common Entrance exams at the end of the programme in Year 5. They are confident speakers, readers and writers of Mandarin. All of the girls from Nursery to Year 6 have also enjoyed learning about the traditions of the Chinese New Year by taking part in interactive workshops run by Dragons.
