Kuaile Hanyu Textbook 1 - Information Video Below

Summary - Kuaile Hanyu
The Kuaile Hanyu (Happy Chinese) Program teaches beginning Chinese through lively animation, videos that depict real-life situations, and fun and motivating games. It is designed for middle-school students learning Chinese as a foreign language from the beginner level. Other products in the series include 3 levels with textbooks, workbooks, flashcards and DVD. Kuaile Hanyu was developed with a partnership of schools in England and the Chinese Government.


The Kauaile Hanyu Learning Chinese Software uses a spiral approach that reinforces and builds upon materials from previous lessons, and emphasizes speaking and comprehension. The situational video follows the experience of two foreign students during their stay with their host families in Beijing, as they make new friends, conduct daily activities and learn about cultural similarities and differences, Chinese etiquette and customs. Each video segment presents the Chinese vocabulary and structures from each lesson in context; it is a great way for students to gain practical knowledge of the Chinese language and culture. A variety of carefully developed game types incorporating vivid graphics, dynamic animation and sound effects makes language learning a positive and exciting experience.


This delightful CD-ROM set is suitable for both individual home study and computer classroom instruction. It is great on its own or as a supplement to the Kuaile Hanyu Textbook series published by the People’s Education Press. For ages 7 and up!

Key Features:
  • Systematic introduction and reinforcement of vocabulary and structures through multimedia features such as animated dialogues, videos, stroke-order animation, Pinyin pronunciation, and captivating games.
  • Highly relevant and age-appropriate topics with immediately useful language models, covering school, family, food, sports etc.
  • Comprehensive selection of Chinese characters and sentence pattern

    Excerpt - Foreword in the Book

    Language is the most direct way for mankind to communicate information and exchange ideas, and it serves as a bridge between different people and cultures. Chinese language, along with eh rapid development of China's economy, is becoming increasingly popular in the world. Chinese language courses are offered as early as primary school of junior middle school in many countries. To meet the needs for Chinese textbooks suitable for primary and junior middle school. Students, a project was founded by the National Office for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language (NOCFL) of China and we were entrusted with the work of compiling KUAILE HANYU, a series of Chinese textbooks for junior middle school students of English speaking countries.

    In the process of compiling, NOCFL acted in close coordination with the British Council. The textbooks were tried out in some junior middle schools in UK under the organization of the British Council. After soliciting opinions from the experts concerned and with the permission of NOCFL, the textbooks have been published in the UK by the British Council with the title Chinese for GCSE.

    KUAILE HANYU consists of six books with three levels, with both a student's book and teacher's book at each level. From the design, the compiling to the publishing, we have made every effort to accord with learner's psychological conditions and needs of the student from 11 to 16 years old, and with the requirements of foreign language curricula of certain countries. KUAILE HANYU focuses on the training of Chinese communicative competence, and also on motivating the learners. It is devoted to forming a solid foundation for the learners' further study.

    It is our hope that KUAILE HANYU will increase every learner's interest in Chinese, that KUAILE HANYU will let the learners know learning Chinese is very happy and easy rather than boring and difficult, that KUAILE HANYU will help the learners improve their Chinese, and thus get the key to the Chinese culture. We also hope that our colleagues in other countries will like KUAILE HANYU, and have a stronger connection with us.

    We wish great success to all Chinese learners.

    Great sized flashcards and cheap too! February 24, 2012
    Reviewer: Mei Xiao the la from Auburn WA  
    I love these flashcards for myself as well as for the kids that I teach Mandarin too.  They are perfectly sized for a small class and to prop on my cycle bar so I can exercise my brain and my body.  These cards are the cheapest around and they have color and for the most part is self-explanatory.  There is pin-yin on the picture side which you can use to look up the english meaning if need be.

    Great when used with DVD October 21, 2011
    Reviewer: I Heart Asia from Diamond Bar CA  
    I'm an adult trying to learn Mandarin. Frustrated over the lack of adult language learning schools and the expense of private tutors I picked up the Kuaile Hanyu Textbook.  It is a great learning tool especially when used with the DVD. The textbook reviews what you have learned and I love the writing exercises.  Get the DVD it's fun educational and a must for pronunciation.

    Effective learning for Adults too! September 8, 2010
    Reviewer: N2travels from Seattle WA  
    I have almost completed Book 1 and am amazed at the number of words I can understand read and even write the characters.  This system builds upon itself and you are soon able to structure full sentences and engage in conversation.  The CD-Rom is easy to use and while the graphics are very high tech the games and pronounciations are very helpful.  Also I enjoy using the flash cards to reinforce
