ExpertTrack Learning Journey

Understand the ExpertTrack learning journey.

Welcome to the YCT Standard Course 2: Part B and the follow-up of your learning journey on the YCT Standard Course 2 brought to you by Chinese Plus.

Throughout these two courses, you’ll improve your Chinese language skills with the approaches of colorful pictures, wonderful stories, catchy songs, interesting videos and practical quizzes, and fully prepare yourself for the YCT Level 2 Test in the future.

This ExpertTrack has been carefully designed and the courses within are organised in sequence. For the best learning experience we suggest you work through in this order:

COURSE 1: YCT Standard Course 1: Part A
COURSE 2: YCT Standard Course 1: Part B

We expect the entire ExpertTrack should take at least twelve amount of weeks to complete. That said, everyone’s different, and you may find yourself working at a different pace, and that’s fine – one of the benefits of online learning is you can work at a pace that suits you.

You need to mark over 90%+ of steps as complete across the entire ExpertTrack, attempt every test and assessment question, and score an average of at least 70% across all your assessments, to be eligible to gain certificates at both individual course level, and overall ExpertTrack level.

Assessment in YCT Standard Course 2: Part B

In this course, you will see 11 quizzes. Quizzes are for practice. They do not contribute to your final score. They’re a fantastic opportunity for you to check your progress and understanding.

Throughout the entire course, there are also 5 self-assessments which based on the YCT Level 2 Test papers. They also do not contribute to your final score. But you give it a try and prepare yourself for the real YCT Level 2 Test in the future.

Tests at the end of this course are part of your final score. You can retake tests as often as you need but it is important to complete them as they count towards your overall score.

You need to mark over 90%+ of steps as complete across the entire ExpertTrack, attempt every test and assessment question, and score an average of at least 70% across all your assessments, to be eligible to gain certificates at both individual course levels, and overall ExpertTrack level.

Finally, you do not have to take any tests until you’re ready. To help you prepare you might wish to spend some time reviewing and revising.

Deepen your learning

But there’s more to engagement than gaining certificates: we are confident that if you engage fully in all parts of this ExpertTrack you’ll likely maximise your learning, encounter other perspectives and ideas, and have a richer learning experience. Full engagement includes:

● Working through the component courses in the suggested order – they’re arranged for a reason, and each course has been designed with a logical sequence. Jumping ahead without completing what came before may give you a disjointed learning experience.

● Reading, watching and listening across a variety of steps – some of which are text-based, some with rich media.

● Sharing and discussing your learning with course peers – keep an eye out for the prompts which follow many steps, and get ready to spend a little more time on the Discussion steps.

● Developing your ideas through conversation – Educators will not be able to respond directly to comments in this ExpertTrack. We encourage learners to support one another, share personal experiences, and see new perspectives through the comments.

● Concept-checking and assessing your progress by completing quiz steps – they’re just for practice, and the scores don’t count towards your certificate of achievement.

● Attempt the mock test of YCT Level 2 and get ready for the real test in the future.

● Completing an overall test across each course in the entire ExpertTrack.
