Since children are good at imitating and acquiring new things, New Concept Chinese starts from character teaching that helps students form the learning habit centering on character study, while pinyin is not introduced until the 4th volume is taught (the 2nd grade) and the teaching won't take much time since the focus is on pronunciation and reading aloud. Features: 1. The systematically organized 24 volumes, together with the complete accompanying products, meet the needs of learners from children to high school students. 2. Centering on the unique characteristics of Chinese language, it adopts the most natural way that Chinese children acquire the language. 3. Most of the texts are children's songs which are full of rhymes and easy for learning and teaching. A wealth of reading materials in the forms of children's song, riddle, tongue twister, etc. is also provided. Especially the Humorous Stories section is tailored to the reading habit of learners in western countries. 4. The workbook has two separate sheets of exercises for each lesson, so after one sheet is handed in, the other one can be used. 5. The exercises include making sentences with the help of parents, listen to parents telling stories, etc, which enables the interaction between the child and the parents. 6. Useful accompanying products are provided, such as CD, flash cards for students, flash cards for teachers, final exam papers, etc.
