Ni Hao, Volume 4 Textbook (Traditional)

Ni Hao, Volume 4 Textbook (Traditional)

ISBN:
9780887274022
Description

Ni Hao, Volume 4 is the fourth level of the Ni Hao series and is designed for students who have completed Ni Hao, Volumes 1-3. This level is ideally suited for students in high school. Topics include relationships, dating, fashion, part-time jobs, school events, and social issues.

As in other levels, Chinese characters are used extensively throughout the text and are accompanied by pinyin, which acts as a guide to pronunciation. Pinyin is gradually omitted as the student becomes familiar with the characters and vocabulary. 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 is in traditional 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.

Each Ni Hao textbook includes a free download of the Ni Hao Language Lab Textbook Edition (Lab TE). The software includes recordings of the pronunciation practice, dialogues and readings, vocabulary, and common phrases sections from each lesson in the textbook. Students can also record their own voice to compare pronunciation.

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