There are four lessons in Volume 4, each with four sub-topics, followed by example sentences, vocabulary, and character lists.

Ni Hao, Volume 4 introduces more than 440 words and phrases and 140 written characters. Appendices with Chinese-English and English-Chinese “Words and Expressions” contain pinyin, English, and traditional and simplified character listings for words learned in the text. All characters learned from Ni Hao 1 to Ni Hao 4 are listed in the last appendix, arranged by the number of strokes. Students can look in the appendix to recap the pinyin and check the meaning of a particular character. This textbook includes the Ni Hao Language Lab Textbook Edition software doenload and is in simplified characters.
