Description

The Huanying Volume 1 textbook is designed for learners who have no prior knowledge of Chinese. The Textbook is designed as a full-year course. There are six units, each with a specific communication theme and learning objectives, five lessons, a unit review, and an end-of-unit self-assessment. Each lesson within the unit has two dialogues or texts, a new word list, language notes, cultural notes, knowledge-related language activities, and either Pronunciation Practice (Units 1-3), or a more extensive glimpse into Chinese culture (Units 4-6). In Volume 1, the first few lessons introduce the fundamentals of the spoken and written language, with guided practice in pronunciation and character writing. Indices of vocabulary, proper nouns, and language notes are included, as well as three helpful appendices of pinyin tone and spelling rules, character strokes and radicals, and each lesson's dialogues and texts written in traditional characters. Huanying’s lessons are in simplified characters, with English and pinyin included as well. Traditional characters are included in vocabulary lists and indexes.

About the Series

Huanying, Cheng & Tsui’s Chinese curriculum designed for secondary schools, was developed in accordance with ACTFL National Standards to meet the growing need for high-school materials. Set in an international school in Shanghai, Huanying's storyline follows the lives of a diverse group of students, both at school and at home to embed extensive language practice in a meaningful context. Huanying engages students in interactive and integrated language practice through fun and meaningful activities, contemporary topics that appeal to secondary school students, a full-color textbook design, and additional resources that will reduce teacher preparation time and allow teachers to focus on teaching.  The four-volume series covers four years of instruction at the secondary school level, and is perfect for pre-AP* and AP* Preparation.

Huanying is organized around topics that are essential to everyday communication, such as greetings, family, common items, dates and times, transportation, food and drink, and school. Volumes 1 and 2 each contain six units; Volumes 3 and 4 have four units. Each unit has five new lessons and one review lesson. Volumes 1 and 2 introduce approximately 500 essential vocabulary terms each, while Volume 3 introduces over 400 words. In addition, Volume 1 includes about 150 supplementary words and Volume 2 includes about 300 supplementary words. Volumes 3 and 4 have around 200 supplementary words each. Huanying’s simple, yet systematic, language notes introduce students to accurate and natural use of the language. Activities in the corresponding Huanying workbooks are skill-integrated, meaning nearly all exercises involve two or more language skills; this structure mirrors real-life usage and helps improve students’ overall language proficiency.

 Huanying contains the perfect mix of ingredients to ensure that the students’ learning experience is continuously intertwined with the “5-Cs” of foreign language learning—communication, culture, connections, comparisons, and communities—as established by the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning. The Huanying series contains a wealth of cultural information, exposing students to modern Chinese life while giving them an important grounding in Chinese idioms, legends, and traditions. By starting with a communicative approach and combining it with carefully crafted activities that embed repetitive language practice in a meaningful context, the authors of Huanying have created a practical and fun learner-centered experience for secondary school students.
