Anti-requisite(s): 97103 Chinese Language and Culture 3 AND 97104 Chinese Language and Culture 4


This subject builds on skills developed in Chinese Reading and Writing Skills 1 and further develops the written proficiency in Modern Standard Chinese for students who have a good command of spoken Chinese. The subject emphasises skills in reading and writing, and to a lesser extent in listening and speaking. Students extend their written vocabulary by approximately 700 Chinese words and develop their literacy. The subject also facilitates a deeper understanding of and engagement with the sociocultural contexts in which the Chinese language is used. Students demonstrate intercultural understanding and engagement, by recognising, exploring, interpreting and moving between the languages and practices of two or more cultures. Students take an active part in collaborative learning activities to practise and consolidate their language skills.
