Helping to foster lasting relationships between New Zealand and China


Welcome to the Chinese language resources website, developed by Confucius Institute in Auckland and the New Zealand Chinese Language Teachers Association (NZCLTA) to support Chinese teaching and learning in New Zealand primary, intermediate and secondary schools.

These resources have been: developed to align with the NZ Curriculum; written by experienced NZ teachers of Chinese; have been successfully trialled in classrooms; and can be selected or adapted for your class. Each resource is supported with guidelines and includes activities to practise and enhance language learning.


All resources are FREE to NZCLTA members. Click to view a sample unit.

To access more units, either enter your NZCLTA membership number or join to become an NZCLTA member.

Resources on this website will be ongoing. We invite more NZ teachers of Chinese to also share their ideas and resources to further support Chinese teaching and learning. Please contact NZCLTA ([email protected]) to do this.

This website has been developed with support from the North Asia Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence.

A great thank you to all the contributors who have shared their expertise to make this website possible.
