In addition to the annotations in pinyin, English, Korean and Japanese for the new words, the corresponding pinyin is also provided for each story. Three columns are designed after the story. In the first part, "Have you understood it"?, four questions are raised to check how well the learners read; in the second part, "Can you use it?", two sample sentences on how to use this idiom are given, the purpose of which is to help learners master the usage of the idiom. The third part, "Synonym idioms", helps students to learn by associating this word with other words.
