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. 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. This textbook is in simplified characters.
