“Cool Conversations” CAL Video Competition – For Lower Secondary | 初中部非母语组 “酷说中文“ 中文视频大赛

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.

Detailed Information:

  • Eligibility: All Y7 – Y9 CAL students
  • Requirements:
