  • Chinese NCEA Level 2

    Appendix for external assessment

    Texts for Achievement Standards 2.1 Demonstrate understanding of a variety of spoken Chinese texts on familiar matters 2.4 Demonstrate understanding of a variety of Chinese texts on familiar matters will reflect the achievement objectives for levels 7and 8 for Learning Languages:

    Communicate information, ideas, and opinions through increasingly complex and varied texts.

    Understand texts which explore the views of others, and which develop and share personal perspectives.

    Students will be expected to identify linguistic and cultural forms that guide interpretation of texts. This will involve understanding information, ideas and opinions through increasingly complex and varied texts. Level 2 Level 2 texts will be based on familiar matters, personal/community interest. This refers to regularly encountered information, ideas and opinions that will be expressed in clear standard language. The texts will reflect the relationship between language and culture and be adapted as appropriate. Note for internal assessments This appendix applies only to language used for the two end of year reading and listening external assessments. The language which students will use to communicate in internal assessment activities and associated learning opportunities throughout the year will necessarily reflect the Chinese teaching and learning that takes place within the context of each particular classroom and cannot and should not therefore be restricted to solely the language and useful expressions contained in this appendix. . NOTES TO TEACHER: Students are expected to be able to recognise:

    1. Where a noun, adverb or adjective can easily be constructed from the verb or vice versa; 2. Obvious cognates and loan words;
