MODERN CHINESE FOR THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, FIRST YEAR.
WANG, LUCY Y.L.
THIS BEGINNING CHINESE TEXT IS THE OUTGROWTH OF THE AUTHOR'S EXPERIENCE IN TEACHING CHINESE TO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN WHO HAVE NOT HAD A CHINESE LINGUISTIC OR CULTURAL BACKGROUND. THE FORMAT AND ILLUSTRATIONS ARE SPECIALLY DESIGNED TO BE ATTRACTIVE TO CHILDREN. BASED ON THE AUDIO-LINGUAL APPROACH, THIS VOLUME PRESENTS A PROGRESSIVELY GRADED INTRODUCTION TO THE SOUNDS, STRUCTURE, AND VOCABULARY OF MANDARIN CHINESE AS IT IS SPOKEN IN TAIWAN AND MAINLAND CHINA. THE CHINESE IS WRITTEN IN YALE ROMANIZATION BECAUSE THIS SYSTEM WAS FELT TO CORRESPOND CLOSELY TO THE ENGLISH PHONIC RULES USED IN AMERICAN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. (CHINESE CHARACTERS ARE INTRODUCED IN THE SECOND VOLUME.) EACH OF THE 20 LESSONS BEGINS WITH A DIALOG, FOLLOWED BY PRONUNCIATION AND TONE PRACTICE, VOCABULARY, PATTERN PRACTICE, AND QUESTION-ANSWER PRACTICE. FOUR REVIEW LESSONS AND INDEXED ENGLISH-CHINESE AND CHINESE-ENGLISH VOCABULARIES COMPLETE THE VOLUME. TAPES TO ACCOMPANY THE LESSONS ARE IN PREPARATION. SINGLE COPIES OF THIS 276-PAGE TEXT ARE AVAILABLE FOR $2.40 FROM ASCENSION ACADEMY, 4401 WEST BRADDOCK ROAD, ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA 22304. THE ACCOMPANYING TEACHER'S MANUAL IS ALSO AVAILABLE AT NO CHARGE. (AMM)
