Level 2 Samoan

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. Sime

The Year 12 Samoan language programme is a 23 credit course (includes the Level 3 Presentation standard) which incorporates more cultural and respectful linguistic skills of speaking, reading, listening and writing. Students are exposed to a variety of texts in the target language from media clips, music and literary resources. Students who enrol into Level 2 Samoan should be fluent and communicate with ease. With these standards, students will be required to contribute evidence of work to a portfolio over the course of the programme.

Recommended Prior Learning

It is highly recommended that you already have the conversational language in both writing and speaking to ensure you get the best out of the course. This may have been achieved by speaking and communicating in Gagana Samoa at home with your 'aiga regularly or completing the Level 1 Gagana Samoa course. 

If you are unsure if this course is for you please see Mrs Sime for support.
