Spoken Chinese. Books One and Two.
Hockett, Charles F.; Fang, Chaoying
This is one of a series of self-teaching textbooks initially prepared for the Armed Forces and now offered to the public. Book 1 is divided into two main sections, each consisting of five lessons and a review lesson. Each lesson is divided into several sections: basic sentences, word study, pronunciation practice, grammar and conversational situations. Each of the two main sections is followed by a check list containing all the vocabulary introduced in the lessons. The first twelve units, which comprise Book 1, are designed to be used with a native speaker of Chinese or with the accompanying recordings, or with both. Book 2 is divided into three main sections, each consisting of five learning units and one review unit. Each unit deals with some particular grammar point or area of vocabulary. The format of the units is similar to that of Book 1. A "finder list" follows each unit, containing the vocabulary introduced in the unit. Lessons in both books deal with practical aspects of daily life. The text concludes with an English-Chinese reminder list for vocabulary and a Chinese-English glossary. (CLK)
