For Excellence, the student needs to give a clear, effective spoken presentation in Chinese that communicates a critical response to stimulus material.

This involves explaining and justifying a viewpoint, in Chinese that is controlled and integrated. There will be capable selection and successful use of a range of language and language features. Critical response will include analysis, interpretation or evaluation.

Communication will not be hindered by inconsistencies.

The student provides a clear and convincing presentation on his trip to China. He explains his impressions before and after the trip and discusses the benefits of such trips. A recommendation is also given. The delivery is confident and fluent. There is clear evidence of the student’s ability to give a critical response in Chinese, e.g. 在中国我体验中国的文化, 现在我了解了中国的文化,所以我越来越喜欢学中文, 你有机会和中国人说话,你的中文一定会进步很快, 这次旅游很有意义 and让我记忆深刻and我期待下一次的中国之旅’.

For a more secure Excellence, the student could at times show more consistent evidence of integrated development, e.g. the comparison of cultures between China and New Zealand is partial and is not substantialised.

For Merit, the student needs to give a clear, convincing spoken presentation in Chinese that communicates a critical response to stimulus material.

This involves explaining and justifying a viewpoint, in Chinese that is credible and connected. There will be a range of language and language features. Critical response will include analysis, interpretation or evaluation.

Communication will not be significantly hindered by inconsistencies.

The student presents an analysis and evaluation of Chinese martial arts and sports played in New Zealand.  Some sophisticated language is used to justify his viewpoint, e.g. 越来多人学习中文和中国文化, 你在哪里都可以练习新西兰的运动 and 新西兰的运动讲究团体队合作’.

To reach Excellence, the student’s ideas need to be presented in a logical sequence to meet the criteria of integrated development.

Further, improved pronunciation would also lead to a clearer and more effective presentation. The mispronunciation of a few key words such as 武术 does impact on the communication of the message.
