NCEA Level 2 Chinese

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Grounds

NCEA Level Two Mandarin. This course follows on from the NCEA Level One Mandarin course. Further skills are developed in listening, speaking, reading and writing Chinese. The Year 12 Chinese course focuses more on speaking than in Year 11. Whereas the NCEA Level One course focuses only on person information, ideas and opinions, the NCEA Level Two course adds the skills necessary to agree or disagree with the ideas and opinions of others.

Cultural knowledge in terms of how to communicate appropriately in Chinese society is also an important aspect of the course.

It is important to note that this course is designed for non-native students of Chinese. It is not designed for students who already have a high level of Chinese ability due to speaking the language at home.

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

There is a course contribution of $7 to cover learning resources.
Students are expected to supply their own stationary.
