HUANYING 1 TXT HC
The Huanying Volume 1 textbook is designed for learners who have no prior knowledge of Chinese. The Textbook is designed as a full-year course. There are six units, each with a specific communication theme and learning objectives, five lessons, a unit review, and an end-of-unit self-assessment. Each lesson within the unit has two dialogues or texts, a new word list, language notes, cultural notes, knowledge-related language activities, and either Pronunciation Practice (Units 1-3), or a more extensive glimpse into Chinese culture (Units 4-6). In Volume 1, the first few lessons introduce the fundamentals of the spoken and written language, with guided practice in pronunciation and character writing. Indices of vocabulary, proper nouns, and language notes are included, as well as three helpful appendices of pinyin tone and spelling rules, character strokes and radicals, and each lesson’s dialogues and texts written in traditional characters. Huanying lessons are in simplified characters, with English and pinyin included as well. Traditional characters are included in vocabulary lists and indexes.
