Hua Wang delivered the speech titled as Based on Northern Australia, Rooting in Campus, Tripartite Cooperation produces a Beautiful Desert bloom of Chinese Culture——Reflections on the Experience of Integrating the Confucius Institute at Charles Darwin University into Partner Universities.

These speeches covered wide topics, such as roles of traditional and new media in promoting the brand image and visibility of CI, methods to integrate into the local communities, the forging of CI with business characteristics, and so forth.

As part of the programme, Mr. Andrew Everett and associate professor Hua Wang, together with other delegates, were invited to visit four local schools, Westlake Boys' High School, St Peter's College, Meadowbank School and Newmarket Primary School, three of them are Confucius Classrooms.

The First Seminar on Chinese Language Teaching in Northern Territory was successfully held at the Confucius Institute at Charles Darwin University

On 14 Oct. 2017, as an instant response to the 2017 Education Leader’s Forum held on 13 Oct. 2017, the first Seminar on Chinese language teaching was successfully held at the Confucius Institute at Charles Darwin University, to explore the effective and efficient acquisition strategy of Chinese as a second language.

At the seminar, based on the understanding of Northern Territory Education Outlook 2025, Australian experts in Chinese language teaching and the educators from China had a meaningful exchange on their ideas of education and proper methods of Chinese language teaching in Northern Territory. On the teaching design, approach and procedure of a specific text, language educators expressed their own opinions. Ms Marnie Foster, a leader responsible for the teaching of Chinese language in Northern Territory, said “teaching designs should be student-centred and are supposed to be timely adjusted according to the learning conditions of students at each class. To be more effective, a communicative approach should be taken to the content, which should be a small highlighted piece, rather than an unfocused mass to be crammed.” This was echoed by teachers at the seminar. Amy Yu, a Chinese language teacher from Charles Darwin University said that not too much stress should be laid on the tone of Chinese, but due attention should be given to the effectiveness of applying pictures to the teaching of Chinese characters since basically they are hieroglyphic. Dr. Zhi Gao, an associate professor from Hainan University, said “based on my personal teaching experience at Larrakeyah Primary School, students are very lovely and are keen learners of Chinese, and they are good at learning through games, teachers should employ various creative games to daily language teaching.”  These kindled people’s interest in games for daily teaching. Volunteers from the Confucius institute shared their teaching PPT, which were well appreciated by the educators from local schools in Darwin city.

Introduction to HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi) 汉语水平考试

The HSK test was launched by Hanban in an effort to better serve Chinese language learners. The test is the result of coordinated efforts by experts from different disciplines including Chinese language teaching, linguistics, psychology and educational measurement. The new exam combines the advantages of the original HSK while taking into consideration recent trends in Chinese language training by conducting surveys and making use of the latest findings in international language testing.

I. Test Structure

The new HSK is an international standardized exam that tests and rates Chinese language proficiency. It assesses non-native Chinese speakers’ abilities in using the Chinese language in their daily, academic and professional lives. The new HSK consists of a writing test and a speaking test, which are independent of each other. There are six levels of writing tests, namely the HSK (level I), HSK (level II), HSK (level III), HSK (level IV), HSK (level V), and HSK (level VI). There are three levels of speaking tests, namely the HSK (beginner level), HSK (intermediate level), and HSK (advanced level). During the speaking test, test takers’ speeches will be recorded.

II. Test Levels

The different levels of the new HSK are similar to some of the levels in the Chinese Language Proficiency Scales for Speakers of Other Languages (CLPS) and the Common European Framework of Reference (CEF); details are as follows:

Test takers who are able to pass the HSK (Level I) can understand and use very simple Chinese phrases, meet basic needs for communication and possess the ability to further their Chinese language studies.

Test takers who are able to pass the HSK (Level II) have an excellent grasp of basic Chinese and can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters.

Test takers who are able to pass the HSK (Level III) can communicate in Chinese at a basic level in their daily, academic and professional lives. They can manage most communication in Chinese when travelling in China.

Test takers who are able to pass the HSK (Level IV) can converse in Chinese on a wide range of topics and are able to communicate fluently with native Chinese speakers.

Test takers who are able to pass the HSK (Level V) can read Chinese newspapers and magazines, enjoy Chinese films and plays, and give a full-length speech in Chinese.

Test takers who are able to pass the HSK (Level VI) can easily comprehend written and spoken information in Chinese and can effectively express themselves in Chinese, both orally and on paper.

III. Test Principles

The new HSK follows the principle of “test-teaching correlation”, bases the design of the test on the current trends in international Chinese language training, and is closely related to textbooks. The purpose of the test is to “promote training through testing” and “promote learning through testing”.

The new HSK emphasizes the objectivity and accuracy of the evaluation and stresses the learners’ actual Chinese language abilities.

The new HSK sets clear test objectives to allow the test takers to be able to improve their Chinese language abilities in a systematic and efficient way.

IV. Testing Purposes

The new HSK retains the former HSK’s orientation as a general (or universal) Chinese language abilities test for adult learners. The results of the test can serve several purposes:

1. A reference for an educational institution’s decision-making concerning recruiting students, assigning students to different classes, allowing students to skip certain courses and giving students’ academic credits.

2. A reference for employers’ decision-making concerning the recruitment, training and promotion of test takers.

3. A method for Chinese language learners to assess and improve their proficiency in Chinese.

4. A method for Chinese language training institutions to evaluate training results.

5. A necessary item to apply for the Confucius Institute Scholarship to study in China.

V. Results Certificate

Test takers will receive the results on website: www.chinesetest.cn, issued by Hanban within four weeks after the test.

Confucius Institute heralds the year of the rooster

By Leanne Miles

Friends of Charles Darwin University gathered this month to sing, dance and play games as part of Chinese New Year celebrations to signify the beginning of the year of the rooster.

The Darwin community joined the celebrations at Casuarina campus, which were co-hosted by the Confucius Institute at CDU and the Australia China Friendship Society.

The event included dance performances, traditional Chinese food, games and cultural activities such as paper cutting and calligraphy.

Confucius Institute co-Director Professor Martin Jarvis said the event was a great opportunity for the community to celebrate and learn about Chinese language and culture.

“The Confucius Institute at CDU has become an important hub for engagement with Chinese culture over the past four years,” Professor Jarvis said. “CDU’s recognition of the cultural importance of the Chinese New Year festival has become very significant as we develop a closer relationship with our Chinese partner universities.”

The Chinese co-Director of the Confucius Institute, Associate Professor Hua Wang, said the rooster was one of 12 zodiac signs on the Chinese lunar calendar.

“The pronunciation is similar to Chinese words representing opportunity and being energetic,” Mr Wang said.

“It is also well known that the rooster helps people to know that the morning has arrived and to make the most of each day.”

He said celebrations were held by Chinese people in the hope of a prosperous year ahead.

“Through the Confucius Institute we hope to develop closer relationships and understanding with the community and local business,” he said.

He said the institute would hold a range of programs and cultural activities throughout the year including Chinese traditional art, music, film, language programs and Tai Chi to engage with the community.

The talk discussed the background and connotations of the Chinese Dream, the international reactions of Chinese Dream and how China could contribute to build a community of common destiny for mankind.

The Chinese Dream was put forward by Xi Jinping, the General Secretary of the Communist Party of China on 29 November 2012 when he visited  the National Museum of China . The connotations of Chinese Dream are: the country becoming rich and strong, the nation becoming revival and  the people becoming happy. The specific goals of Chinese Dream are to achieve the “Two 100s”: China will become a moderately prosperous society in all respects by the year 2021, the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party. China will become a moderately developed country by about 2049, the 100th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

By Leanne Miles

Charles Darwin University Vice-Chancellor Professor Simon Maddocks recently welcomed the Minister Counsellor for Education at the Chinese Embassy in Australia, Mr Xu Xiao, during his visit to the university’s Confucius Institute.

Confucius Institute Chinese Director Wang Hua said the visit by Mr Xu aimed to strengthen relations with the Northern Territory Government and expand linkages across the education sector.

While in Darwin, Mr Xu also visited Woodroffe Primary School to discuss the school’s participation in the Confucius Classroom Program.

“The CDU Confucius Institute currently has three off-campus Chinese language teaching points with a total of about 600 students at Larrakeyah Primary School, Leanyer Primary School and Nakara Primary School,” Mr Wang said.

“The Confucius Classroom Program is very popular all over the world, with more than 1000 Confucius Classrooms established in about 134 countries. We are hoping to establish the program in the Northern Territory.”

The Minister Counsellor also met with representatives from the Department of Education to discuss partnership and collaboration opportunities including the teaching of Chinese language in NT schools, development of the CDU Confucius Institute and avenues for school participation in the Confucius Classroom program.

The Confucius Institute at Charles Darwin University was established in 2011 as a partnership between CDU, Hainan University and Anhui Normal University.

New Year brings new Confucius Institute Co-Director

By Leanne Miles

The new Chinese Co-Director of Charles Darwin University's Confucius Institute has arrived from Hainan University, bringing well wishes for the Year of the Monkey.

Mr Wang Hua will work with CDU Confucius Institute Co-Director Professor Martin Jarvis to head the institute, which is a partnership between CDU and the Anhui Normal and Hainan universities in China that is designed to build cultural ties within the community.

Named after the Chinese educator and philosopher, the institute was opened in 2012, with a focus on teaching Chinese language and culture through innovative new media and creative arts technologies.

Mr Wang arrived this month with his family from Haikou in Hainan Province to take up residence for three years in Darwin, replacing former Chinese Co-Director Mr Donghe Liu, from Anhui Normal University.

He said he was excited to join the institute in Darwin and hoped to provide further opportunities for the NT community to learn about Chinese language and culture, and promote academic and cross-cultural exchanges for CDU staff and students with Chinese partner universities.

“The world is getting smaller; it is easier to travel and people want to learn and experience different cultures,” Mr Wang said. “The aim of the Confucius Institute is to enhance friendship and understanding within our universities and communities by offering opportunities to engage and share through cultural exchange.”

He said the institute would hold a range of programs and cultural activities throughout the year including Chinese traditional art, music, film, language programs and Tai Chi to engage with the community.

Mr Wang said he also hoped to engage the business community by offering courses in Chinese language and culture.

“We hope to talk to local companies to find out what their requirements are, so we can provide them with more training opportunities and services,” he said.

Mr Wang also said he hoped to establish a Confucius Institute Alumni Association and invited all alumni or anyone interested in the Confucius Institute to become involved in the range of programs on offer throughout the year.
