Communication, Language Knowledge, and Cultural Knowledge, levels 1 and 2

At these levels, students can understand and use familiar expressions and everyday vocabulary. They can interact in a simple way in supported situations.

In selected linguistic and sociocultural contexts, students will: For example, students might:
  • receive and produce information;
  • role-play introductions;
  • produce and respond to questions and requests;
  • ask questions about another person;
  • show social awareness when interacting with others;
  • begin questions with polite expressions, e.g., 请问, and note expressions for older people, such as 您 and 你贵;
  • recognise that Chinese is organised in particular ways;
  • look at Chinese names - family name comes before personal name;
  • make connections with their own language(s);
  • compare English “What is your name?” with 你叫什么名字?;
  • recognise that Chinese culture is organised in particular ways;
  • compare the use of Mr, Mrs,and Ms with 李老师;
  • make connections with known culture(s).
  • note that it is more normal in Chinese to ask personal questions of adults about age and salary than it is in English.

Context:
A: A beginning student introduces herself in Chinese to students visiting from China or to other Chinese-speaking students.
B: A different student introduces herself, later in the year.

Variations:
This information can be added to as new information is learned, and could be revisited on a regular basis.
Students could introduce others (pets/friends), for example in a role play using puppets.
