Description:
A rapidly growing group of Chinese language students are known as 'advanced beginners' or 'heritage students' - those who were raised in the United States in Chinese-speaking homes and can speak the language but cannot read or write it. Liu and Wang's primer is addressed to meet the needs of this rapidly expanding population of Chinese language students. This text takes the approach of a culture-based primer with lessons organised around readings on Chinese history, culture, geography, literature, folktales and mythology, customs and cuisine. The focus is not on sentence grammar but rather on reading strategies and the teaching of 'discourse grammar', a new, more authentic approach to the study of languages.
