Final Year GCSE Study Centre

With the UK’s Specialist

Get exam ready!

Suitable for students sitting both Edexcel and AQA GCSE Chinese in 2019.

The AQA GCSE covers three distinct themes. These themes apply to all four question papers.

Students are expected to understand and provide information and opinions about these themes relating to their own experiences and those of other people, including people in countries/communities where Chinese is spoken.

At this final GCSE revision centre of the year, Dragons Teaching teachers will guide students through each of the Themes and look at keywords, phrases and ideas to support Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening.

Lessons are each morning from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm on the 8th – 11th April 2019. The cost of the course is £45+VAT per day. 


Monday

Theme 1: Identity and Culture

This session will focus on the key vocabulary and language structures relating to friends and family; technology in everyday life; free-time activities; and customs and festivals.

Equal emphasis will be given to all four skills to ensure that students are absolutely able to gain top marks in this theme that can sometimes lend itself to simpler language only.

Tuesday

Theme 2: Local, National, International and Global Areas of Interest

This session will focus on the key vocabulary and language structures relating to home neighbourhoods; social issues; global issues; and travel and tourism.

Equal emphasis will be given to all four skills to ensure that students are completely confident speaking and understanding the local and international contexts of language.

Wednesday

Theme 3: Current and Future Study and Employment

This session will focus on the key vocabulary and language structures relating to school studies; life at school; education post-16; jobs and ambitions.

Equal emphasis will be given to all four skills to ensure that students are completely confident with the present and future demands inherent in this theme.

Thursday

Mock examinations

We will round off the revision centre by doing full mock exams in all of the four skills: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. The purpose of this is for students to build confidence, and to remove the possibility of any nasty surprises in the upcoming exams. Students will also be able to see how much they have progressed over the week, and target their own personal areas for future revision.

Students’ Speaking mocks will be conducted by a teacher who has not taught them before, allowing them to benefit from different feedback to what they usually receive.
