Practical Cantonese for Teachers. Level 1.
Kwok, Irene; Sung, Robert
This handbook, the first of two levels, is designed to help teachers refine and expand their language skills in spoken Cantonese. The handbook is written in spoken Cantonese form, which means that many Chinese characters are included that represent Cantonese expressions not found in standard written Chinese. The handbook is divided into 15 units, each containing pattern drills, practice of common terms and expressions, and conversations. The contents include vocabulary items and dialogues useful in a school setting; the principal topics are names, the school building, classroom items, directions, colors, the playground, parent-teacher conferences, and Parts of the body. An outline of Cantonese phonetic symbols is provided. The appendix includes a list of classifiers, a list of the titles of school staff and officials, and a sample Progress report for evaluating individual students. (CLK)
