Details
This is a reference book aiming to help students learn the tones of Chinese words and the rhythm of unstressed and stressed tones. The 11,092 words included herein, being wide-ranging and scientifically graded, come from The Graded Chinese Syllables, Characters and Words for the Application of Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages, the first globally-oriented national standard for TCSOL. In this book, there are two vocabulary lists: a total list organized in alphabetical order and a list ordered by word level, number of syllables, tone combination, and tone pattern. All the words are provided with recording in standard pronunciation to facilitate students' intensive practice. This book can be used as a pronunciation teaching material for non-Chinese speakers, or as a reference book for the computer-based HKC test, for Chinese ethnic minorities to learn Chinese and Putonghua, or for the overall design, textbook compilation and teaching research of TCSOL.
