Ni Hao, 2nd Ed., Volume 1 Textbook (Traditional)

by Shumang Fredlein, Paul Fredlein
ISBN:
9780887273636
Description

Ni Hao Volume 1 is the first level of the Ni Hao series, designed for students in upper elementary or lower secondary school who have no prior knowledge of Mandarin Chinese.

The text uses Chinese characters extensively, accompanied by pinyin as a pronunciation guide. As the student becomes familiar with the characters and vocabulary, the pinyin is gradually omitted. Each chapter includes a variety of engaging activities to develop reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. “Something to Know” sections explore relevant Chinese cultural, historical, and geographical topics, enriching cultural understanding and enhancing students' interest in learning the language.

Volume 1 introduces more than 280 words and phrases and 84 written characters. Chinese-English and English-Chinese appendices contain pinyin, English, and simplified and traditional character listings for words and expressions learned in the text. This textbook is in simplified characters.

About the Series

The Ni Hao textbooks feature a wide range of situational settings and vocabulary to encourage students to practice Chinese in everyday activities. Each lesson presents conversations as illustrated scripts that facilitate role-playing and help students put their communicative skills into action. Engaging additional sections clearly explain new vocabulary and language usage, character stroke order, and Chinese culture. Songs, rhymes, tongue twisters, cartoons, stories, and interesting features of Chinese characters tie the lessons together and make learning fun.

The Ni Hao series includes textbooks, workbooks, and teacher's handbooks as well as great supplements like audio CDs and games software.
