Trip to Beijing Video 2018

In October a group of 10 Tynecastle High School and 10 Castlebrae High School Mandarin learners had the amazing experience of visiting Beijing to experience Chinese culture and put their language skills into practice. We are very grateful to the Swire Chinese Language Foundation for funding this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Students visited famous sites such as the Forbidden City, The Great Wall of China, the Summer Palace and Tiananmen Square, as well as experiencing calligraphy and Kung Fu lessons and using their best Mandarin to haggle in various markets.

We hope you enjoy this short film of the trip made by the students and Mandarin teacher Miss Walker, as much as the students enjoyed their time in Beijing.
