With the final video lesson of Chinese Reading and Writing 6 uploaded, all the ground work is finished, and the Complete Beginner’s Chinese Reading and Writing Course Kit now entered its final development stage. We’re excited!
This Complete Course Kit has always been my goal for the past year. Once it’s available, I believe it’ll offer tremendous help for beginner students to learn how to read and write Chinese, to build solid Chinese reading and writing skills, and the most importantly, to enjoy the delight of reading and writing Chinese. The best part is, it only costs a fraction of what people usually pay for the equivalent amount of lessons. It’s going to be a game changer!
The essentials included in the Complete Course Kit are: the entire Chinese Reading and Writing series, 112 animated video lessons, and the full recordings done by native Chinese speakers. All effort is concentrated on building reading and writing skills. Anything that does not contribute directly to the development of Chinese reading and writing skills is avoided. Three major aspects that are favoured in a conventional approach are therefore not covered on purpose, including: 1) the connections between pictures and characters, 2) Chinese character radicals and components, 3) a second line of pinyin next to the characters.
By the way, for students who are interested in learning about pictures or radicals, there are many resources available. I’ve published quite a few articles here.
The methodology used in the Course Kit is to allocate the majority of the lesson time and nearly all of the book pages to expand words and combinations, to comprehend sentences and narratives, and to understand words or characters within a given context. These are the crucial activities that beginner students genuinely need in order to develop their Chinese reading and writing skills. It is definitely not a conventional approach. And that’s why it’s going to work beautifully, just like the outstanding results that my students have achieved, who have worked through the entire series with me.
As for now, the engineers are taking over. They are going to produce a few prototypes, and then test them vigorously. Once everything is done and all the tests are passed, pre-order starts.
We’re indeed quite thrilled! And an exciting offer is created to welcome anyone who’d love to join the excitement at this stage! Just register your name with us, the earlier, the better! Find out all the details here.
