Students in Year 7,8 and 9 have been studying Mandarin at Nexus as part of the co curricular programme. This Summer, the whole group of nearly 20 students took their first qualification in the subject; the FCSE – one level below a GCSE. Every student passed the exam and several students achieved a Merit. Two of the students achieved a Distinction; an incredible achievement. Year 9 Nexus student Faith C, who alongside Lalita W achieved a Distinction in her exam said “I’m really pleased to have had this opportunity and I loved learning languages. I am looking forward to taking part in International trips in the next few years and using my Mandarin skills.” Faith is now supporting the Nexus 7 students who have chosen Beginners Mandarin as one of their co curricular activities this year. A big xièxiè (thank you) to our brilliant Mandarin teacher Mrs. Pauline Fedorchenko, who makes every lesson such fun for the students.
