Standard Chinese: A Modular Approach. Student Text. Module 3: Money; Module 4: Directions.
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 practical situations, and the texts summarize and supplement tapes. The overall course is organized into 10 situational modules, student workbooks, and resource modules. This text covers the money and directions modules. The money module provides skill training needed to exchange money, make simple purchases, and discuss purchases in Chinese. A criterion test on biographic information must be passed before beginning this module. The directions module provides skill training needed to ask for and understand directions to any place indoors or outdoors, to give simple directions, to understand and give addresses, and to describe relative locations. The money criterion test must be passed as a prerequisite. Drills, reference lists, vocabulary, and notes accompany each of the 11 units of this text. (SW)
