欢迎回来 Huānyíng huílái, or 'welcome back' if 英语 Yīngyǔ is more your flavour. May I start by wishing you 恭喜发财! Gōngxǐ fācái! in this year of the Fire Monkey (more about that here). It's set to be another very exciting year in Chinese and though we're losing some grand old traditions (拜拜 bàibài Lantern Festival) we'll do our best to start some new ones! Check back here to keep up to date with the latest news, interesting ideas and all that is Chinese @ Highgate!
It's official! Horatio the Highgate Squid and his Jellyfish lantern buddies will be joining in on this year's Lantern Festival. Last year's storm put a damper on celebrations but organisers have promised that come rain, hail or shine this year's event will go ahead.
Sadly it will be Highgate's last year in the festival but we're sure that our year fours (and their super-helpful parents) will make it one to remember!
大家好！(Dàjiā hǎo!) Welcome to Chinese @ Highgate, the place to find EVERYTHING Chinese at Highgate School. Here you can find resources, links to useful sites, the latest news and upcoming events. Term 1 was great but term 2 promises to be even better with the introduction of an exciting new Chinese language program but more about that later.
This website is currently under construction but will soon be the first place to look if you have any questions about what is happening in any of our Chinese classes or just want to improve your skills in your own time (非常好！Fēicháng hǎo!). Later on we'll also have some student made content and if we're lucky, competitions!
