Since New Practical Chinese Reader was published in 2002, it has been well received by teachers and learners of Chinese around the world. For users’ convenience, in this new edition, we have revised those we found improper, but have not revised the framework, the texts and the main language points of the textbook. In contrast to its first edition, the explanations of the text are designed right after each text to facilitate student learning. Users can visit www.blcup.com/resource.blcup.com and download the traditional Chinese version of the texts for free. All the reading materials and illustrations in the accompanying workbook are updated.
This is the instructor’s manual accompanying the textbook and workbook of New Practical Chinese Reader 4 (2nd Edition), which can be consulted by Chinese language teachers to prepare lessons. It provides the teaching purposes, tips of teaching steps, content descriptions, the notes and grammar in the textbook as well as the knowledge about the Chinese characters and words. For teachers’ reference, there is also the knowledge about grammar, vocabulary and Chinese characters as well as the answers to some exercises and listening scripts in the workbook. In addition, it also provides the unit tests (in written and oral forms) of Lesson 39 ~ Lesson 44 and Lesson 45 ~ Lesson 50 and the reference answers to the tests.
A CD of MP3 file is attached to the book, with the listening comprehension parts of the two unit tests recorded in it.
