We offer GROW programmes, immersion opportunities, as well as the Chinese National Language Adviser who can work with your school to help strengthen the teaching of Chinese.
We have close relationships with the New Zealand Chinese Language Teachers’Association (NZCLTA) as well as the Chinese Embassy, which allows us to provide up-to-date resources to support any key cultural events. We work closely with CLEC – Centre for Language Education and Co-operation (Beijing) who are a major supporter of Chinese language learning at Tui Tuia.

Making an impact
Hear from educators whose practice have been positively impacted by our innovative approach to learning and professional development.
Reviewing past lessons
The reviews of the past lessons [from the online Chinese workshops] were very valuable as they helped me to regularly consolidate my new learning. The lesson content was very relevant to my daily life which helped me to grasp concepts faster. In my practice, I will incorporate this consistent repetition to help reinforce my learners' abilities and knowledge.
Meeting Language Teachers
Meeting with other language teachers is always refreshing and reassuring. Great ideas to take away and can apply to your teaching.
Cross-Cultural Understanding for Chinese
I am excited to incorporate these new learnings into my teachings and continue to foster cross-cultural understanding and appreciation among our diverse student body.
As a languages teacher, it is important
As a languages teacher, it is important for me to keep on learning another language so that I can explore various second language acquisition theories and put them into practice.
