Chinese Modules for Your School

In 2007, the UCD Confucius Institute for Ireland carried out a national  survey to investigate demand for teaching Chinese as a foreign language in Irish post-primary schools. 24.1% of post-primary schools responded to the survey (181 out of 750). The results indicated a high level of interest in Mandarin Chinese. Since then, the UCD Confucius Institute for Ireland has been promoting Chinese Language and Culture modules in Irish secondary schools. 

We have worked closely with the NCCA and schools to provide interesting, innovative, creative and interactive modules for Irish students. Currently, Confucius teaching staff delivers Chinese Language and Culture courses to more than 50 schools nationwide. 

The aims of our courses are to:

  • provide students with some basic expressions and phrases in Mandarin;
  • foster a positive attitude towards language learning, towards the speakers of other languages and towards other cultures and civilisations; 
  • encourage learners to interact with people from different cultures;
  • help students to gain an appreciation for Chinese culture;
  • provide students with an opportunity to develop team work and organisational skills;
