Last week Mr Hunter and I had the honour of being invited to the SSAT Annual Chinese Lecture 2011 on the Tuesday 1st March. It was in London in the the Barbican Theatre. It was a beautiful location and there was lovely refreshments and Chinese food afterwards.
One boy introduced the Secretary of State Rt Hon. Michael Gove in fluent Mandarin, very impressive. There were students from Kingsford Community School who did some very very talented calligraphy. They have been learning Mandarin for a year and a half. The students said they would have loved the opportunity of learning Mandarin in Primary School.
