Edinburgh Castle Project 2018

Friday 7th December 2018

Lasswade High School has a link with Edinburgh Castle as a business partner through the Midlothian Confucius hub.

Each year Mandarin learners at the school get the chance to work on a project to use their Mandarin skills in a course connected to the castle.

This year, the castle linked the school with the Scottish European Educational Trust (SEET) to provide an opportunity for Castle staff to learn Mandarin from S5 students from Lasswade High School.

Before they taught the staff, students set daily Mandarin words in a real-life context and spent the day filming at Edinburgh Castle in October.

They produced and edited films that included the contents they taught and the films also could be re-used for the Castle staff.

The project could help the Castle staff to learn Mandarin and showcase the skills and creativity of the pupils from Lasswade as well.

On 29th November, 2018, eight students and two Mandarin teachers – Ms. Jiang and Miss. Liu – went to Edinburgh Castle.

Students divided into 4 groups: greeting, direction, numbers, do’s and dont’s. They carefully prepared the presentation before they taught. They made a great effort and did a great job.

During the lesson, the staff showed great interested in learning Mandarin and ask some related questions. After the lesson, the staff said they were so impressed with students’ Mandarin level and wanted to learn Mandarin more in the future.

Well done to everyone who took part in this impressive project.
