Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms J. Fang

LEARNING ACTIVITIES: The course covers the national curriculum at Level 8. A communicative approach is adopted which is activity based, interactive and learner-centred. Learners are encouraged to use the language for real, purposeful communication in a range of contexts. The development of the four language skills and Chinese-English translation skills is the key component of this course.

Chinese is a significant language for NZ because of the strong ties being developed with Chinesespeaking countries. Career opportunities exist in trade, tourism, education (teaching), diplomacy and technology amongst many others.
