Earlier this year, British Council, HSBC and DCSF hosted a conference at HSBC Headquarters London on “Educational Co-operation with China”. The event gathered speakers and participants involved in UK-China linking, and looked at how links could be developed across the curriculum. For an interesting glimpse into how some schools have managed their link take a look at the excellent presentations available on the conference page.

If you work in a UK school or local authority and have links with China, have you considered using eLanguages to develop the partnerships online? Both schools could be given their own shared project sapce to upload and share work, and messages can be swapped via discussion forums. This can help if e-mailing has been a problem for you. The added benefit is that eLanguages is available in the Chinese language, making it very accessible to schools in China. If you want to find out more about how you could use eLanguages, we would be happy to talk you through this. Please contact the team at email@example.com
