Recommended Prior Learning

9 Credits NCEA Level 2 Japanese.

Year 13 is an integrated programme which provides a progressive development of language skills and cultural knowledge attained in Levels 1 to 8 of the Japanese curriculum (Years 9 to 13). Students will be encouraged to consolidate, extend and become more diverse in all four language skills, as well as deepening and extending their awareness of a variety of aspects of Japanese life. The vocabulary and grammar structures at this level of study will occur in extended conversations and written work based on Levels 7 to 8 of the Japanese curriculum. Through the study of four topics, and the revision of Level 2 topics, students will master the reading and writing of 200 basic kanji and grammar points for the Level 3 achievement standards examination. Standard AS 91555 is optional.
Students can enter the ALC Certificate Level 3 and enter the Education Prefect competitions.

This leads to tertiary study.

A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.
