This course builds on the previous course, VIET1002. It deals with the question of tense, usage of conjunctions and more complex particles. The context of language use covers comparisons, directions, distances and modes of transport, the human body and basic health terms. Attention is given to the social and cultural context of language use.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Use an active vocabulary of around 800 items and a passive vocabulary of around 1,500 items.
  2. Recognise and produce contextually appropriate utterances in frequently occurring situations; read and write basic sentences on such topics as daily activities, habits, customs and surrounding environments.
  3. Communicate in routine contexts that require a simple and direct exchange of information with slow speech on such topics as personal preferences and immediate needs.
  4. Demonstrate an understanding of cultural communication practices when travelling to various localities in Vietnam and interact according to basic social etiquette.

Other Information

On successful completion of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to engage at an Introductory level of Vietnamese.

 

Students with native speaker proficiency (may include cognate languages and dialects) must review the placement test site and contact the CAP Student Centre for appropriate enrolment advice. Students with previous “language experience or exposure” are required to take a language placement test to ensure enrolment at the most appropriate level.

 

Relevant past experience includes:

-      Previous study of the language (both formal and informal, for example but not limited to, at school, or, home, or through online activities, etc.)

-      Being exposed to the language in childhood via a family member or friend

-      Travel or living in a country where the language is spoken

-      The language being spoken in your home (even if you do not speak it yourself)

 

Students who are not sure if they need to take a placement test should seek advice from the course or language convenor. Students who intentionally misrepresent their language proficiency level may be investigated under the Academic Misconduct Rule 2015 as having failed to comply with assessment directions and having sought unfair advantage. This may results in a penalty such as reduced grades or failure of the course.


Students are not permitted to enrol in a language course below one that they have already successfully completed, except with permission of the language and/or course convenor.

----

As language courses are sequential, this may mean that students can only commence their language course in the following semester.
