About De Yin School

De Yin School is a bilingual Chinese school for 3 to 18 year-old children from various cultural backgrounds.

We provide students with a lovely environment to learn the Chinese language, the profound traditional Chinese culture, Chinese history, and traditional Chinese moral values.

Traditional Chinese culture and its moral values are very important components in our teaching that distinguish De Yin School.

The De Yin School students are not only taught Mandarin, but are also inspired to respect and care for others, be honest, and have a positive, upright & resilient attitude in life.

Every year, we set up a summer camp programme for children & teens. It not only provides them with an immersive experience of Chinese culture & language, it’s also a lot of fun!

Meet Our Teachers

Ying Adams

Head Teacher

Mrs. Adams has more than 30 years experience in teaching Chinese both in China and across the UK. She developed De Yin School’s textbooks and teaching methodology. She currently trains our teachers and also teaches Mandarin at King Edward VI Grammar School and Chelmsford County High School for Girls.

Say Soon Ooi

Head Teacher

Say is our head teacher. A few years ago, he suffered an unexpected illness that turned his life upside down. Dejected by the modern way of life, he looked for a solution in tradition. He recovered fully after practising Traditional Chinese Qi-Gong while studying Classical Chinese poetry and literature. Realising the wisdom behind the teachings, he aspires to teach children those same values & principles that transformed his life.

Luke Lin

Assistant Teacher

Luke is passionate about China’s 5,000 year-old culture. He loves teaching children the stories & profound meanings behind the Chinese characters, making sure everyone is pronouncing Mandarin properly. He grew up in China but moved to the UK during his teenage years. His experience in both Chinese & UK schools gives him a unique perspective on how to teach English-speaking children to speak Chinese like a native.

Emily Li

Calligraphy Teacher

Emily moved to the UK to study law, but her passion for Traditional Chinese calligraphy and crafts led her to De Yin School. She teaches De Yin students how to write the characters properly and how to memorise the correct stroke sequence. She has an amazing talent in connecting with children, grabbing their attention while teaching them all the intricacies of Chinese language & writing.

Joy Duguid

Storyteller

Joy has a long teaching career in the UK. She loves traditional Chinese culture and its meaningful, thought-provoking stories. Through storytelling, she teaches children traditional values, captivating their imagination. She inspires them to apply those wonderful principles in daily life.
