Chinese Characters: Building Blocks Character-Based Learning Method BLP332

US$16.95

The structure of Chinese characters has been studied and analyzed since ancient times, for example according to Chinese dictionary from two-thousand years ago Shuowen Jiezi ( "Explaining and Analyzing Characters"), the character "休" is described as "person (亻) leans on tree (木)", thus explaining its "stop to rest" meaning. On the contrary, when Shuowen Jiezi explains the character "止", it says "Base. Grasses and trees have roots. Ancestors used stop to mean foot." Not so easy to understand, right? As times change, so does the language. Modern language education does not need to rigidly adhere to the teaching methods of the past generations, for it is only when new knowledge is referenced to the things that students come into contact in their life, that meaningful communication becomes possible. Bearing this in mind, Professor Chen Hsueh-Chih with his team of colleagues in education and technology fields, jointly wrote two Chinese language textbooks. The first one is called "Learning Chinese Characters with Drawings", and is focused on character structure, using association method to assist students in memorizing character structure and meaning, at the same time expanding from characters to words, making character study a practical part of learning the Chinese language. The second book is called "Chinese Characters: Building Blocks", and just like building a house with building blocks, it leads learners from characters to words, and from words to complete usable sentences, as a result, proving wrong the misconception that characters and vocabulary should be taught separately.

本書特色: 強調漢字為學習本位,以字系詞,以詞領句,提升華語學習力。
漢字與西方的拼音文字有所不同,是由圖像演變而來的文字,而漢字教學一直是華語教學上重要的課題。目前大多數的華語教材是以「詞本位教學法」編寫,採用「分散識字」模式,以詞彙為識字基本單位,因此學習基礎的漢字量需較長的時間。而「字本位教學法」強調「漢字」是華語的基本單位,透過「集中識字」模式,集中學習部件相同的詞彙,可強化華語學習者對漢字形音義的理解,以增進學習效率。
目前已出版的字本位教材,為了將所選取的漢字安排在課文中,往往無法兼顧教材的情境與趣味性。本教材為避免現有教材的缺失,在內容編寫方面強調情境與趣味融合,讓學習者更能體驗實際生活情境。
