Standard Chinese: A Modular Approach. Resource Modules: Pronunciation and Romanization, Numbers, Classroom Expressions, Time and Dates.
Defense Language Inst., Monterey, CA.
Texts in spoken Standard Chinese were developed to improve and update Chinese materials to reflect current usage in Beijing and Taipei. The focus is on communicating in Chinese in practical situations. The overall course is organized into 10 situational modules, student workbooks for each module, and resource modules. This text contains resource modules in pronunciation, romanization, numbers, classroom expressions, and times and dates. The resource modules are designed to supplement the texts. The pronunciation and romanization module provides a brief, systematic introduction of the sound system of Standard Chinese and its written representation in "Pinyin" romanization. The numbers module introduces the Chinese numbers from zero through 99,999 and ordinal numbers, and the time and dates resource module summarizes and supplements core module presentations concerning years, days of the week, and clock time. Tapes and workshop displays and exercises are designed to accompany the resource modules. (SW)
