This course enables students to reach an intermediate level of Mongolian. It consolidates and builds on the skills learned in the two first year Mongolian courses. It focuses on active oral and writing skills and reading comprehension.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Use correctly all additional 680 vocabulary items introduced in the course textbook.
- Recognize and produce complex phrase and sentence structures enabling them to converse and write passages on a range of non-technical topics, and to read relatively long Mongolian text.
- Communicate in variety of contexts including discussion of employment, culture, education, human rights and religion.
- Use in communication regarding ethnic diversity, national unity, migration, mining, informal employment, foreign relationship, learning styles and religious beliefs.
This is a co-taught course. Any cap on enrolments in one course applies to both courses combined.
On successful completion of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to engage at an Advanced Beginner level of Mongolian.
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.
