Course Outline:

In Year 10, students will build on the work studied in Year 9. Topics used for conversation will include daily routines, homes, clothes, shopping, visiting, food and weather.

We will continue to learn to read and write characters and use conversational Chinese and learn to communicate in basic Chinese in everyday situations. We will learn more about China, Chinese people and their life, and practise writing of known characters. We will work in groups and pairs using audio, video, computer and character cards to help us.

Assessment:

Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and to assess their own work using charts, and "I can" sheets, graphs, etc. Tests will be little and often, with equal weighting on culture, speaking, reading, writing and listening skills. Students will study Level 3 and 4 of the Chinese curriculum.

Where Does It Lead:

NCEA Level 1 Chinese and beyond; on to full-time study at polytechnic, university or used in employment in a wide variety of situations.
