Chinese Teachers: Broadening your teaching to include subject areas other than Chinese language adds an area of expertise to your c.v. and gives you examples to include as ‘significant achievements’. It might allow you to:
- become involved in teaching geography as part of the Chinese curriculum (eg KS2/KS3/GCSE)
- motivate your language class by making China ‘real’ by showing pupils what China ‘is like’ and how it differs from the UK
- allow you a have a China theme to an international day where you look at geography across national borders
