Cantonese for Foreign Children.
This text in beginning Cantonese is designed especially for children. Each lesson begins with a listing of new vocabulary, followed by the introduction of two simple Chinese characters and a step-by-step illustration of the strokes. Basic sentence patterns are introduced in simple substitution drills using the new vocabulary. The tenth, and final, lesson consists of a conversational dialog, a song ("Jesus Loves the Little Children"), and a review of the sentence patterns and the 20 characters introduced in the text. All Cantonese appears in Yale romanization, with English equivalents. The Chinese characters for the numbers 1-10, the names of the months, and the words of the song are also given. (AMM)
