Appendix 4 Character list 23, The place of the Chinese culture and language in Australia and in the world. China s official language is Modern Standard Chinese or Putonghua the common or shared language in. Chinese The language is also referred to as Hanyu the spoken language of the Han people or Zhongwen. the written language of China In Taiwan it is more usually called Huayu Hwayu the spoken language of. people of Chinese ethnicity a term also used in Singapore A number of dialects remain in active use and. both forms of Chinese characters simplified and full form are regularly used in the media in education and. in environmental print advertisements shop signs Such diversity highlights the need for recognition of. spoken dialects and both writing systems in any Chinese language curriculum However the priority in. education should be Modern Standard Chinese and simplified characters as the internationally recognised. official form of Chinese, Communities of speakers beyond the geography of Greater China the mainland Hong Kong and Taiwan. can be found in almost every country of the world Many of these communities have a long tradition and are. well established in parts of South East Asia the Pacific coast of Canada and the USA and in Australia The. history of the Chinese community in Australia extends back to the mid 1800s and has been characterised by. rapid growth in numbers in the last few decades, The place of the Chinese language in Australian education. Chinese has been taught in Australian schools since the 1950s and experienced rapid growth in the 1980s as. China undertook a policy of open door and economic reform While Chinese has traditionally been taught. as a second language in schools recently there has been an increasing response to the needs and interests. of Australian born Chinese and overseas born Chinese speakers residing and attending school in Australia. Chinese is recognised as an important language for young Australians to have access to during their. schooling as Australia progresses towards a future of increased trade and engagement with Asia. The nature of Chinese language learning, English and Chinese have very different grammatical and vocabulary systems The Chinese spoken language. is characterised by a high number of homophones These homophones are tone syllables which are used to. represent more than one morpheme and each of which has its own particular Chinese character The range. of syllables in Chinese while limited in comparison to English does include some sounds unfamiliar to. English speakers Learning Chinese requires learning to interact orally supported by print materials in the. Pinyin Romanisation system and learning to read and write supported by texts and resources in Chinese. characters, Characters are logographs composed of a number of components organised into a particular sequence.
within a square parts of which are likely to suggest the sound and meaning of the whole character The. majority of characters are morpheme syllables each of which represents a syllable of sound and a unit of. meaning There are 3500 frequently used characters which are learned by native speaker children in primary. school in China These characters are composed of approximately 500 distinct components which are used. with varying degrees of frequency location and function An additional characteristic of Chinese writing is. the fact that texts in Chinese characters do not display word level spacing and texts may be written vertically. and read from right to left down the page, Chinese Background Language ATAR Year 11 and Year 12 syllabus. The character system has undergone significant evolution standardisation and simplification over time. There are two standard character sets of Chinese character systems simplified and traditional full form. Simplified character forms were created by decreasing the number of strokes and simplifying the forms of a. sizable proportion of traditional Chinese characters Simplified Chinese characters are officially used in the. People s Republic of China and Singapore while Traditional Chinese characters are currently used in Hong. Kong Macau and Republic of China Taiwan In recent times the need to create texts in Chinese in digital. format has resulted in an international effort to standardise character forms so that computer operating. systems internationally can generate and reproduce texts in Chinese in both simplified and traditional. characters In contemporary overseas Chinese media texts are commonly in either simplified or traditional. characters reflecting the diverse histories and preferences of these communities Consequently some. knowledge or awareness of both systems is an advantage to both Chinese speakers and Chinese learners. Different systems have been developed to reproduce the sounds of the Chinese language using the Roman. alphabet to assist learners who are already familiar with the Roman alphabet Today the Pinyin system is. recognised internationally as the principal means of representing the sounds of Chinese in alphabetic form. It plays an important role in oral language development and a supplementary role in developing skills in. reading and writing Pinyin assists students to learn and record the sounds of Chinese to access words via. their sounds in bilingual dictionaries and as an efficient means of text input when creating texts in. characters using digital media It is important to note that Pinyin is limited in its readability and is. considered a tool for learning rather than a valid alternative to written expression in characters. The diversity of learners of Chinese, Chinese language programs in Australian schools are offered to a range of learners Many are monolingual. English speakers for whom this represents a first experience of learning a second language Many others. have existing connections with Chinese either directly as background speakers of Chinese or as second or. third generation Chinese Australians or through professional personal or other forms of cultural. connection,The WACE Chinese courses, In Western Australia there are four Chinese courses The courses are differentiated each focusing on a. pathway that will meet the specific language learning needs of a particular group of senior secondary. students Within each of these groups there are differences in proficiency in using the Chinese language and. cultural systems,The following courses are available.
