VCE CHINESE SL & SLA Q&A THREAD

What is this thread for?
If you have general questions about the VCE Chinese SL & SLA course or how to improve in certain areas, this is the place to ask! 👌


Who can/will answer questions?
Everyone is welcome to contribute; even if you're unsure of yourself, providing different perspectives is incredibly valuable.

Please don't be dissuaded by the fact that you haven't finished Year 12, or didn't score as highly as others, or your advice contradicts something else you've seen on this thread, or whatever; none of this disqualifies you from helping others. And if you're worried you do have some sort of misconception, put it out there and someone else can clarify and modify your understanding! 

There'll be a whole bunch of other high-scoring students with their own wealths of wisdom to share with you, including TuteSmart tutors! So you may even get multiple answers from different people offering their insights - very cool.


To ask a question or make a post, you will first need an ATAR Notes account. You probably already have one, but if you don't, it takes about four seconds to sign up - and completely free!
One wug.

Are there any VCE Chinese SL/SLA Unit 1/2 Books? (Just for VCE)?
Like Cambridge Specialist Math 1/2 3/4 books?
Anyone know? And should schools be using them?

Thanks

Ok thanks! And last one, Did you find it at any use? Unsure if you've completed 3/4 or not but if so, was it any helpful? And did it impact your performance?

Sorry for all these questions ^.^

The book is good for increasing ur vocaubulary, as thereís 15 writing pieces(of different writing styles) in it, with some complex vocabulary at times. Iím completing chinese Sl unit 3/4 next year so I wouldnít be able to answer the next few questions.

Is this thread still active? I was wondering if anyone could give me some feedback for a persuasive essay I scored 13/20 on. I've re-written it with my teacher's feedback but I'm always open to more constructive criticism. Thanks.


你今年要参加高考,很喜欢看电视,每天早上和晚上都要看一会电视,为此你的父母对你很不满意。你要说服你的父母每天让你看至少半个小时的电视。

   爸爸妈妈,你们好。我知道最近我每天早晚看电视让你们不满意,觉得看电视打扰我的学习。不过我认为适当的看电视对我有利,因此我希望能征求你们的同意让我每天看至少半个小时的电视。

   首先,看电视对我学校的科目有帮助。今年年底我会考国际政治这门科目,因此我需要深入地了解世界各地发生的重大事件。政治天天都有变,所以我必须每天都看新闻,这样才能为年底的高考做最充分的准备。学校的政治老师也建议学生们天天关注新闻。

   其次,看电视也地问家庭的生活有帮助。每个周末电视台都会直播澳洲政治家之间的辩论。辩论中会讨论他们对这个国家的安排,想进行的变化等等。看这个节目会让我们更深刻的了解我们国家政治的各个方面,也对以后投票等有帮助。

   最后,看电视可以提高学习效率。学生不能每天学习学习再学习,这不仅让学生的学习效率不高,而且对学生的身体和心情也有坏处,让学生变成一个 Ď书呆子í。偶尔适当的看一些娱乐节目可以让学生放松、提神,因此再开始学习时,效率自然就高了。

   总而言之,适当的看电视有很多好处。它可以提高我的政治成绩,让家里了解澳洲的政治,也可以明显的提高学习效率。因此,我希望你们能允许我每天看至少半个小时的电视。

Any suggestions and/or criticism would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Hey guys, I am currently doing Chinese Second Language Unit 4, I'm aiming for a 35 or so raw study score but I haven't been doing too well lately : (
My average SAC scores are 80-89%. Assuming that I get 80-89 for my SAC and my exam, is it still possible for me to get a 35 (or at least above 30) raw study score? I am ranked second or third in my class

This seems fine to me, but it depends on your class of course. IF you pulled those scores for your exam though you'd be absolutely fine for 35.

Hey AN!
How early should I start preparing for my General Conversation and Detailed Study? I heard that there will not be such a big change with the study design other than the translation part being removed. Also, any rough idea of how long each should be?
Thanks!

People generally start writing their first drafts for their scripts as soon as they start 3/4 (some even earlier), and add to it throughout the year. There is of course no harm in starting a bit later (I started my scripts a month before the exam and still pulled a decent score).

Regarding length, the actual oral exam is really short (only 15 minutes), but as you have no idea what questions they could ask, it's best to prepare as many as possible. I did Chinese at XJS where we were recommended to have at least 50 questions for each.
