year 9 working towards chinese sl

Hey guys, I'm in year 9 this year and I've been looking into really starting to focus on my chinese level.

I feel like my level right now in chinese is pretty bad compared to my peers at school who are also sitting chinese sl. I'm hsk 4 level (mastered hsk 3) if that is any indication of my level. My listening skills are good, but I have lack of vocabulary (800~words) and my writing/reading need improvement.

I just came here to ask for any advice, whether it be study recommendations, or a guide to working up to vce, habits to start early etc. I'm glad that I still have a few years to brush up my chinese, so that I can take advice on board now and use it to get pretty good at chinese come vce.

Thanks in advance guys.

Chinese is getting really hard these days, not only because of the amount of competition and the curriculum is getting pretty harsh. So if you want to get a good score in SL, you probably need to have the language skill of a SLA student.

Sadly this is really true. A few of my friends are taking Chinese SL 3/4 accelerated as they have always spoken it at home however because they were raised in Australia qualify for SL. A tip from a fellow LOTE student is to immerse yourself in the language as much as possible from a younger age. Watch movies, listen to the news, read things even if you cannot fully understand them. If you work hard I can assure you that anything is possible :)

Thanks for the reply, besides from a general emergence in the language, are there any specific schedules or study programs that you follow? Whether it be vocab techniques, or what to prioritise etc. Any guidance is appreciated.
