都柏林中文學校 Dublin School of Mandarin Chinese was founded in 2009 and has been approved as an Overseas Compatriot School by the Department of Foreign Affairs in Taiwan since 2011. We welcome students from both primary and secondary schools who are interested in Chinese studies, learning Mandarin (AKA Chinese 國語, Huayu 華語, Hanyu 漢語, Zhongwen 中文, Putonghua 普通話), Chinese arts & crafts and Culture. Our school is delighted to announce the support of the Overseas Community Affair Council, Taiwan for their sponsorship of our textbooks and workbooks.
Our aim is to encourage our next generation to develop an interest in language learning either is part of their heritage or as a second language. Our Methods of teaching are through creative activities such as puppet shows, play, songs, games, story, videos, cultural element and ICT in the classroom to motivate and cultivate the ability to listen, to speak, to read and to type in Chinese. We want to make it as much child/student centred as possible because each child is different as is their learning style.
Our school is managed by Evan Furlong (Info@dsmc.biz) and we run two terms per year. Classes are on Saturday from 1-3 pm in Bray (North Wicklow Educate Together Secondary School), 14 weeks between Sept. to Dec. and 18 weeks between Jan. to May
