This portfolio of student work shows that the student uses written and spoken Vietnamese to initiate and sustain interactions with teachers, peers and adults in familiar contexts (WS2, WS4, WS5). The student uses modelled and spontaneous language to engage in discussions, seeks clarification, offers opinions (WS1, WS4, WS5), compares experiences related to familiar, and expresses agreement or disagreement (WS2, WS4, WS5). The student interacts with others to carry out transactions and to plan and organise social or cultural events by negotiating options, and explaining and justifying opinions (WS2, WS4, WS5). The student applies appropriate pronunciation in spoken Vietnamese, including intonation patterns, tones and pauses (WS4, WS5). The student analyses information and ideas obtained from diverse sources, comparing and evaluating different perspectives related to common areas of interest and study (WS1, WS2). The student presents information and opinions using different text types and modes of presentation appropriate to a variety of audiences and to achieve different purposes (WS1, WS2, WS3, WS4, WS5). The student shares their responses to different imaginative texts by expressing preferences and describing key elements such as themes, values, plot, and representations of characters and events (WS1, WS2). The student creates imaginative texts for the purpose of self-expression and engagement, using cohesive devices such as conjunctions to communicate, link and extend ideas, and common Vietnamese idioms, proverbs or folk songs for illustration of cultural concepts or aspects (WS1, WS2, WS3, WS4, WS5). When writing, the student uses verbs to express modality, direct speech and indirect speech and applies Vietnamese spelling rules and tone markers to a range of words (WS1, WS2, WS3). The student translates and interprets texts using strategies to overcome challenges in translation, such as considering cultural expressions or representations, and explains differences in interpretation. The student creates a range of multimodal bilingual resources for the school and local community. The student explains the relationship between language, culture and identity, and modifies language and behaviours in intercultural interactions to enhance mutual understanding (WS6).
The student infers the meaning of unfamiliar words encountered in a range of familiar contexts by applying knowledge of grammatical elements and vocabulary. The student analyses the relationship between cultural representations, language choices, and the audience and purpose of different text types (WS1, WS4). The student identifies and analyses linguistic features of Vietnamese in a range of situations, explaining variations due to audience and purpose (WS1, WS6). The student explains the impact of social, cultural and intercultural influences on language, identifying and using Vietnamese words that have emerged from globalisation, migration, popular culture and technology (WS6). The student explains ways in which language and culture are interrelated and influence each other (WS6).
