Levels 3 and 4

Achievement Objectives and Examples

At these levels, students can understand and construct simple texts using their knowledge of Chinese. Students can describe aspects of their own background and immediate environment.

Communication at these levels means that, in selected linguistic and sociocultural contexts, students will:

  • understand and produce information and ideas;
  • express and respond to personal needs and interests;
  • use cultural knowledge to communicate appropriately.

Language Knowledge and Cultural Knowledge at these levels means that, in selected linguistic and sociocultural contexts, students will:

  • recognise and describe ways in which Chinese is organised;
  • compare and contrast languages;
  • recognise and describe ways in which Chinese cultures are organised;
  • compare and contrast cultural practices.

How to integrate the strands:

  • By ongoing integration of language and culture
  • By encouraging a strong awareness of self and belonging; providing opportunities for diverse learners to engage
  • By fostering beginnings of openness and curiosity for interacting in a widening range of genuine social context
  • By extending the range of opportunities for listening, speaking, presenting and performing Chinese
  • By viewing, reading and producing Chinese script in supported situations
  • By creating a supportive environment in which students can take risks
  • By encouraging students to use Chinese, focusing on communication rather than native speaker competency.
