A-level Chinese Curriculum

 

During the Sixth Form, students who choose to do the A-level have the option to take Mandarin at different levels (ab initio, IB SL/HL). It is a challenging and effective programme that by the end of the two-year course, students will have a sound knowledge of Mandarin and a deeper intercultural understanding.

 

A-level Chinese is also offered as a steppingstone for the students who wish to take their study further. Most pupils who study A-level Chinese will go on to pursue a degree in Chinese Studies at the university or to take A level examinations.

This level of Mandarin Chinese learning will be leading to a strong command of the language at an advanced level. The course will focus on improving students’ creative, comparative, and critical speaking and writing abilities. Students will develop the skills necessary to carry on conversations in Chinese while expressing their opinions on issues related to current events, like Chinese society, politics, economics, education, and different aspects of the Chinese culture.

Learners gain an understanding of how to use the language in a variety of situations. They will be expected to handle texts and other source materials, extracting information to respond to specific tasks. Through their studies, learners can expect to achieve greater fluency, accuracy, and confidence in the language. They will also learn how to translate material from English into the Chinese. After studying A Level, students will have a more advanced conversational ability and will be able to progress either into business or further education using the language.

The full A-level is made up of 3 exams taken at the end of the second year of study. Paper 1: Listening, Reading and Translation, Paper 2: Written response to works and translation and Paper 3: Speaking. Therefore, we have designed an exclusive teaching syllabus that will assist the student who wishes to sit the A-level Chinese  examination and being able to provide them with large amount of exercises that enable them to achieve at least A result in the exam.
