For Excellence, the student needs to give an effective spoken presentation that communicates a personal response. There will be evidence that the student is able to communicate beyond the immediate context. 

Effective Chinese will be shown by capable selection and successful use of a range of language and language features that are fit for purpose and audience. There will be development of the information, ideas and opinions which is controlled and integrated.

Communication will not be hindered by inconsistencies.

The student has demonstrated an effective presentation by talking confidently and clearly about his school. There is capable selection and successful use of language covering a range of information, and some personalized information is given, for example 这是我第一次说汉语, 我家离学校 很远, 如果我忘坐第一个 公共汽车 and 我晚上学.

He talks about his future plan as well as the subjects he studied in the past, for example 今年 我学 汉语, 因为我明年 想 去 中国, 在北京的时候 and 我想去看一看故宫.
