Primary School, Adults

Chinese Now! is a set of Chinese textbooks for students of the immersion program in North America. This book is a parents' manual for primary school Chinese, which contains both Chinese and English, which is convenient for parents to guide their children to learn Chinese.

Chinese Now! is tailored for primary school Chinese immersion courses in the United States; it is also a choice for other types of primary school Chinese language programs. The series aims to achieve the following goals:
1. To fit the general curriculum of Chinese immersion programs in primary schools, which means 50% immersion, five days a week, and 1-1.5 hours a day.
2. To observe the characteristics of primary school Chinese immersion programs, the general rules of foreign Ianguage learning as well as the features of Chinese language learning, and to combine implicit Iearning with explicit learning, which means implicit acquisition of language elements (pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, and Chinese characters) and cultivation of communicative skills through explicit presentation in such forms as stories, narrations, and picture talks.
3. To meet the actual teaching situation and integrate Chinese learning into stories, activities and games, ensuring that students have enough listening, speaking, reading and writing work to do, helping them accumulate the knowledge of Chinese Ianguage and steadily improve language skills, and preventing any halt that may occur in a stage of learning due to weak foundation.
4. To address the problems related to Chinese characters learning and reading skills development. There are plenty of learning contents in the book focusing on Chinese characters, with games, activities, and writing tasks of characters that show the basic rules to help students understand and remember Chinese characters. The repeated occurrence of the characters in different contexts may deepen students' memory and help build up their bank of Chinese characters. The reading practice, large in amount, may improve students' ability to recognize Chinese characters as well as their reading skills.
5. To provide teachers with enough teaching materials. Besides texts, this book also provides teachers with abundant Chinese teaching resources and instructional and activity tips, such as comprehension questions, vocabulary exercises, sentence pattern exercises, Chinese character exercises, glossaries, verses and rhymes, etc., which may save teachers' time in preparing these materials and also provide some guidance for novice teachers.
6. To supply teachers and students with enough pictures (word cards and teaching flashcards, etc.), with ready situations for students to practice listening, speaking, reading and writing, helping students understand the Iearning content and stimulating their desire for learning and expression.
