The Confucius Institute in Auckland offers an extensive support programme for teachers and students of Chinese (Mandarin) language and culture in schools.

Chinese in Schools

Chinese in Schools is a venture of the Confucius Institute in Auckland.  It aims to promote and develop Chinese language programmes in New Zealand schools.

Getting started with Chinese in your school

Chinese language and culture is becoming increasingly important for New Zealanders facing the economic rise of China. 

We combine the expertise of many organisations in helping schools introduce Chinese (Mandarin).  

Our support includes advice, introductory programmes, networking, information exchange, conferences, professional development, and online resources.
