All activities that form part of this course will be delivered remotely in Semester 2 2020.
In this course students will expand the competencies learning in Mongolian 1. Students will also use main cases and finite verb tenses, as well as some modals (converbs) and simple compound sentences. Students will also get to expand their experience of Mongolian culture by reading simple folk tales.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Use correctly all additional 550 vocabulary items introduced in the course textbook.
- Recognize and use grammatical features necessary for reading and understanding simple Mongolian folk stories and for composing short texts in a range of simple genres, such as letters. These grammatical features include: suffixes, including particles; personal pronouns; and the past tense.
- Conduct longer conversations and produce longer written descriptions of everyday events, such as transportation, colours; employ the basic registers of formal and informal language relevant to a range of social situations.
- Describe the history and mythology of the Mongolian peoples.
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 language proficiency assessment site and contact the CAP Student Centre for appropriate enrolment advice. Students with previous “language experience or exposure” are required to undertake a language proficiency assessment 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 undertake a language proficiency assessment 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.
