2023 OzChin Quiz Bowl
Chinese Background and Second Language Learners
The OzChin Quiz Bowl for Chinese language students is a fun and engaging event that aims to foster intellectual curiosity and academic achievement. Covering topics related to the Chinese language and general knowledge, this quiz night encourages critical thinking, problem-solving, and effective communication. By participating in the OzChin Quiz Bowl, students have the opportunity to showcase their skills, learn new things, and build their confidence in a friendly and competitive environment.
All schools that are members of CLTASA are invited to participate in this competition, regardless of their location. We also encourage teachers and students from country schools to join this OZCHIN Bowl Quiz through Zoom online. As there will be no provision of dinner or other services, student registration is free. The Zoom login information will be provided to the school teachers after registration.
Students who have an interest in the Chinese language and culture and attend a South Australian Public, Independent, Catholic, or Community school are eligible to take part in this quiz night. It is open to Years 8-12 Second Language Learners and/or Background Language Learners (Chinese Second Language Learners with a cultural or linguistic background in Chinese).

To ensure a fair competition, the same topics will be set for Years 8-12 Second Language Learners and Years 8-12 Background Language Learners (Chinese Second Language Learners with a cultural or linguistic background in Chinese), but with different levels of difficulty. This allows each language pathway to showcase their abilities. Therefore, we kindly request teachers to register their students under the correct learner pathway.
The quiz will include a combination of paper and pen questions as well as online questions, with both individual and collaborative components. A detailed program for the evening will be provided to participants closer to the event date.
A buffet with soft drinks and snacks will be provided to all participants.
