Talented students from schools across the UK have shown off their linguistic skills in the grand final of the X Factor-style HSBC/British Council Mandarin Chinese speaking competition.

After more than 400 entries and two regional heats, the final 89 students competed at the British Museum on 10 March to win the trip of a lifetime to China.

The competition supports and promotes the teaching of Mandarin Chinese as a modern foreign language in UK schools.
