Active knowledge/use: vocabulary, structures and language items which are introduced in a specific context and
practised in a controlled manner to the extent that students should be able to understand meaning and possibly
produce verbal and nonverbal responses in an exam setting which mirrors the learning experience.

Passive knowledge/use (shaded items): additional vocabulary, structures and language items which may be found in
textbooks or used in class and although students may be able to recognize them and understand their meaning, they
will not be tested on these language items for the present level.

Vocabulary is cumulative across levels and passive items are counted as part of the level they are listed in. For
example, a passive word in the primary 1 new word list (i.e., hamster) will not be repeated in the primary 2 new word
list. The general vocabulary list contains items from all 5 levels, Primary 1, Primary 2, EC 1, EC 2, ED First.
