Dear Chinese language teachers:                                                                                           

大家好!祝老师们鸡年大吉!

Hope you all have a good start at school in 2017,the year of roaster, and everything goes well with all of you!

We believe that everyone has been busy starting Term One and preparing for the school year!  Part of the plan for teachers with senior classes, it is time to plan for the year assessments in 2017 and mock exam papers are especially important. According to the requirement of NCEA schools are not allowed to use the old exam papers for their mock exam.

With the support from ILEP Chinese, the New Zealand Chinese Language Teachers Association, NZCLTA, has organized Chinese language teachers nationwide to write listening and reading mock exam papers for Chinese Level One, Level Two and Level Three in 2015 and 2016. In 2017, the Auckland branch is happy to continue the job by inviting a group of experienced NCEA teachers to write new mock exam papers under supervision of experts nationwide in New Zealand.

All the Reading exam papers include Resource Booklet, exam Question Papers and Schedule while all the Listening exam papers include a CD, CD Transcript, exam Question Papers and Schedule. The schedules could be adjusted according to the answer information from students.

The exam papers will be available in PDF via email or hard copy via courier at the beginning of Term Three in 2017

These exam papers include Level 1, 2 and 3, 6 standards in total. The price of each standard is $30 for NZCLTA member and $50 for non-member. To value the hard work of all people involved and to respect those teachers who have paid for the exam papers, a kind reminder here to all those teachers who are to purchase the exam papers, will you please not share the exam papers with others?

For any teachers who need the mock exam papers before Term three, you may also order the mock exams created in 2015 and 2016 and the price is the same as 2017.

Last but not the least, we encourage teachers to join NZCLTA and the annual fee is $30 per teacher. As a member you will enjoy free workshops and discounted price to purchase the mock exam papers It is really worthy of it!
