“…studying Chinese will open a world of opportunities for our future global citizens.”

Chinese as a Second Language is offered from Year 7 through to Year 12. It is compulsory to study Chinese (Mandarin) Language in Year 7 and Year 8 since 2019.

Students are strongly encouraged to communicate in Chinese within the school multi-cultural environment while improving their understanding of their own language. Furthermore, the course equips students with generic language – learning skills useful for the study of any language in the future.

The Chinese language (Mandarin), being one of the United Nation’s six official languages, is currently spoken by over 1 billion people around the world and studying Chinese will open a world of opportunities for our future global citizens.

The Chinese as a Second Language program at Aranmore Catholic College allows students to share the aspects of living in Chinese-speaking communities and popular culture. They begin to develop an understanding of what it is to be Chinese and can compare their own lives to those of others in Chinese-speaking communities with a focus on communication and understanding.

The course is designed to provide students with strong grounding in Chinese language and culture through a range of topics related to student’s daily lives by incorporating textbook learning, intercultural projects such as an excursion visiting Chinese radio station as well as Chinese Newspaper office in Perth, interaction with the Chung Wah Age Care Chinese speaking members, celebrating festivals and traditions, food tasting, and the use of ICT in class.
