Modern Foreign Languages - Chinese (Mandarin)
At Rooks Heath we follow the AQA GCSE Chinese specification, which has clear and accessible assessments. There is a wide range of topics which will expand students’ linguistic and cultural knowledge and awareness.
We aim to enable students of all abilities to develop their Chinese language skills to their full potential, equipping them with the knowledge to communicate in a variety of contexts with confidence. We are passionate about the benefits that learning a language can bring to enrich students’ lives and open up their world.
Students will be tested in the four language areas of speaking, listening, reading and writing and will develop transferable skills, relevant to further study and employment. There is a range of topics within the specification to inspire students who are interested in China’s history, culture, the people of China and those living in Chinese speaking countries.
The Chinese Department supports its students, and offers them help and encouragement through intervention and booster sessions.
