My First Chinese Reader series is for the beginning young student with no prior exposure to Chinese. Based on a communicative approach, this student-centric 4-volume, 48 lesson,
curriculum builds Chinese language and culture skills in a spiral-up
approach. High-quality illustrations, fun and relevant context, and
motivational design empower students with knowledge and confidence to
explore Chinese language and culture!
My First Chinese Reader series has been adopted by schools
throughout the United States and abroad. It was also awarded the
highest recognition from Hanban as the best CFL (Chinese as a Foreign Language) curriculum for its target group.
Pinyin with Traditional or Simplified Characters
The My First Chinese Reader Workbooks are a great way for children in non-native speaking environments to practice Chinese and learn the fundamentals of Chinese writing. These two workbooks help children reinforce and practice the material from Volume 1 of My First Chinese Reader. Volume A focuses on character writing and shows the evolution of the most commonly used radicals, the building blocks of Chinese writing. It also includes tear-out word cards and side-by-side comparisons of traditional and simplified characters to emphasize character learning and recognition. Volume B is filled with fun exercises and games that help kids practice and build on the language they have learned.
