The Years 9 & 10 Conversational Textbook contains the three major languages
spoken in Fiji, namely the English, Vosa VakaViti and Fiji Hindi. By the end of the
course, students will be able to learn, understand and speak Conversational Vosa
VakaViti or Fiji Hindi independently.
The Conversational subject shall not be examined. Teachers can conduct Oral
Presentation, Speech, Group work, Dialogue and Role Play to gauge the level of
students’ understanding and the abilities of students who are non-speakers of the
Vosa VakaViti language to speak basic Vosa VakaViti sentences and vice versa
for students who are non-speakers of Fiji Hindi.
The Years 9 & 10 Conversational Textbook has 24 lessons. The lessons are designed
purely for oral communication on subjects related to everyday life situation.
Teachers need to distribute the themes per school term. Consistent coverage
within a time frame is not required in Conversational subject as lessons can be
repeated until the students are able to speak independently in Conversational
Vosa VakaViti or Fiji Hindi. Teachers need to consider the school context, time
allocation for Conversational Languages and students’ learning needs whilst
planning and delivering the Conversational lessons.
Teachers are also encouraged to provide assistance in the appropriate
pronunciation and clarification of any Vosa VakaViti or Fiji Hindi words that the
students might have difficulties with. The content and activities provided will
enhance children’s learning and understanding of the Vosa VakaViti and Fiji Hindi.
We believe that when you learn to communicate in each other’s language, you
are helping the Fiji multiracial communities to understand each other better and
help build a better Fiji where we can all live in harmony.
