Level: Chinese Teachers (TCSL)

This is the accompanying book of the textbook. Grammar and sentence structures of each lesson in this book are explained to help the teachers make comparisons between Chinese and English when they teach sentence structures. Particular attention is paid to survey and explain the pronunciation and grammar of Chinese from an English speaker’s perspective. Grammar is explained so that teachers can provide sentence structures for students and help the students understand others and express themselves. Furthermore, games are designed in each lesson to make the children have fun in their study.
