The Classroom is a short animation produced in 2010 by British GCSE Mandarin students (Year 11) at St Chad’s Catholic & Church of England High School, Runcorn, as part of the formal education programme “Projector Community Languages” of Cornerhouse, educational charity and art centre. This production enabled teenagers to learn Mandarin in a fun, interactive and engaging way, increase their understanding of Mandarin and Chinese culture through the use of film and practical creative workshops, and encouraged teachers to deliver more creative language sessions at school.
