This is a course for beginners new to the school which aims to develop the four macro skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. On familiar topics, students engage in real or simulated conversations, understand the main idea of texts presented orally, read and understand short passages and write, with assistance, a few sentences.
Content areas covered include: greetings, numbers, the home, family, colours, school, time, food and meal times.
Students entering this course during the year will also have the opportunity to reinforce the materials taught in the early chapters when they continue on to Year 9 at Timbertop.
