Year 10 Chinese

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms J. Fang

Y10 Chinese students will have four lessons per week in preparation for taking NCEA Level 1 in the following year. The course aims to develop students’ ability to use Chinese as a second language confidently and effectively in situations related to their daily life. It develops students’ reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in ways which are interesting and in which students can monitor their own progress. During the course students are introduced to both Pinyin and Chinese characters.  At the end of the course students will be able to hold conversations in Chinese on certain common topics, such as family and friends, sports and hobby, time and weather, school life and job, transport and travel etc., and will be able to read and write entirely in Chinese characters.

The course provides a foundation for NCEA Level 1, 2 and 3 Chinese.
