Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms M. Lin

In Year 12 Chinese you learn more abstract and complex language in order to communicate information and ideas and justify your opinions. Topics include:

  • Study & Career Plans
  • Festivals & Customs
  • Leisure activities & Healthy living
  • Part-time work & Social network

We approach these topics through a blended text- and online-course and add to it Chinese history, myths, film, and other authentic resources. We continue to use computer programmes such as online interactive exercises and Education Perfect.
