If you are a teacher hoping to incorporate more literary texts in your curriculum, this section is designed for you!

To get you started, why not consider setting up a school bookclub of Chinese literature in translation? The reviews have started coming in – both in written and video form – and it’s been great to see the discussions and read the responses.

In partnership with the Mandarin Teachers Network based at the Confucius Institute of the Institute of Education, London, we are developing a network of teaching ambassadors, and tailored teaching materials to suit the various secondary school curricula. If you’re a teacher or PGCE student who would like to get involved, please contact us at

New! This year, we’re holding our first children’s translation competition, open to all students in secondary education. Our translation text will be a picture book by Meng Yanan 孟亚楠, entitled 中秋节快乐. We’re delighted to be working with Daylight Publishing House (天天出版社) and Balestier Press to publish the winning entry in a bilingual version of the book. We also have a panel of expert judges who are looking forward to reading your entries! Please see our competition page for more details.
