MANDARIN CHINESE. UNITS 1-6.
BODMAN, NICHOLAS C.; AND OTHERS
THE LESSON MATERIAL OF THIS TEXT COMPRISES THE FIRST UNITS, ABOUT ONE-THIRD, OF A NEW COURSE IN ELEMENTARY CHINESE. THE CHIEF AIM OF THE MATERIAL IS TO PROVIDE DRILLS TO ENABLE A STUDENT TO ACQUIRE AN ACTIVE FACILITY IN SPOKEN CHINESE. EACH LESSON UNIT CONTAINS (1) CONVERSATIONAL PHRASES AND DIALOGS, (2) SUPPLEMENTARY VOCABULARY, AND (3) PRONUNCIATION DRILLS. EMPHASIS IS ON THE LEARNING OF SENTENCE PATTERNS, THAT IS, LEARNING WHAT SUBSTITUTIONS ARE POSSIBLE WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE LINGUISTIC STRUCTURE WHEREVER CULTURALLY PERMISSIBLE. THE VOCABULARY USED IS SMALL, BUT SPECIALLY CHOSEN FOR ITS HIGH-FREQUENCY USAGE. (GC)
