$42.99

The Chinese Odyssey, Volume 1 textbook lays the groundwork for solid Chinese language acquisition. Lessons emphasize pronunciation and the use of colloquial expressions, to put students on the right track to speaking Chinese accurately and fluently. Written Chinese is also introduced, but at a slower pace than the spoken language.

Volume 1 focuses especially on phonetics to teach students to distinguish tones and sounds, as well as sight reading for pinyin mastery.

The volume’s ten lessons contain dialogues and texts, clear and detailed explanations of basic grammar rules and language usage, coordinated grammar and communication exercises, and cultural material. Intended to cover the first semester of Chinese for students in high school or college, Chinese Odyssey, Volume 1 is the first in a series of flexible courseware that can accommodate different learning styles and teaching environments. This textbook is in traditional characters; for simplified characters click here.

Reviews

I was particularly impressed with the way [the CD-ROM] enables students efficiently to acquire accurate pronunciation and character-writing skills, arguably the two most difficult aspects in learning Chinese.
