Course Description (课程介绍):

“My First Chinese Reader” is a set of textbooks specially designed to teach Chinese language skills to children of non-native Chinese families and those living in non-Chinese speaking communities. In this Bilingual 4 class, we will use volume 3 of the My First Chinese Reader Book series. Volume 3 contains 14 lessons that combine the following teaching methods: an easy step-by-step approach; a comprehensive selection of characters and sentence patterns; highly relevant scenarios covering school, family, daily life, sports, etc; and a stroke-by-stroke approach to writing Chinese characters. Illustrated with simplified Chinese characters, Pinyin, and colorful pictures, this book introduces little readers to basic Chinese sentences in a daily living environment. There are also sections on Vocabulary, Drills, and Reading and Writing at the end of each lesson, along with English translations for each vocabulary word and sentence.
