Chinese for the English-Speaking Student, An Approach through English Grammar.
Chu, Show-chih Rai
This textbook presents the study of Chinese through the use of English grammar in the hopes of moderating the extremes of the direct method and of structural analysis. It is intended to cover a one-year course, or six semester hours of introductory Chinese. The book contains 16 lessons, of which the first seven use romanized phonetic forms and emphasize oral communication. The next seven lessons, with Chinese characters, develop reading and writing skills. Two review lessons complete the text. The language is contemporary and is presented in the form of sentences, letters, conversation, and stories which are culturally oriented and reflect the experience of daily college life. Three vocabularies are included: Romanized script, Chinese, English; Chinese, Romanized script, English; and English, Chinese, Romanized script. (Author/AM)
