The internal annual CAL group Chinese competition will happen in November, and this year we would like to encourage all the CAL students to use real-life scenarios and an authentic context to develop their listening and speaking skills in Chinese through cool conversations. The videos handed in are encouraged to showcase their Chinese communication skills in real-life situations, which can include, but are not limited to: Survival Chinese, Live broadcasting (i.e. restaurant tour/review), interviews, etc. Meanwhile, they are expected to explore Chinese culture and develop intercultural communication skills through this process, and eventually grow their thinking skills as they learn Chinese, which matches the Monthly Focus LP trait, Thinker.
- Eligibility: All Y7 – Y9 CAL students
“酷说中文Cool Conversation”- Videos that record the students using Chinese in real-life situations, interacting with others in Chinese.
(The Chinese teachers will lead the discussion in Chinese lesson and give the advice on selecting topics and recording the films.)
Type of works: 2-5 min videos, with bilingual subtitles.
- Submission Date: Before November 20
- Time of voting: November 20 – 26 (All the videos will be uploaded to the Chinese blog for all the students to access and watch at any available time)
- Awards assembly: December 20, during Chinese lesson
We hope all the students can join this competition and show how creatively they can make connections between class and real-life.
