China in Movies: Chinese History (5 DVDs) BLO205


This multi-media series introduces China and Chinese language through movies. These movies are:
Bilingual: All movie lines and teaching materials are translated to make the relatively difficulty movie language more manageable and friendlier to a learning environment. This enables learners to focus on comprehension of Chinese culture and comparisons with their own cultures. It also facilitates self-study.
Thematic highlights: The selection of “culture points” is highly focused on each module’s theme. The aim is to lead the student from depth to breadth, from the specific to the general towards a more comprehensive understanding of Chinese culture.
Comparing cultures: Flexible teaching methods are used to inspire learners to compare and contrast Chinese culture with their own cultures, given that people are more likely to be open-minded towards a different culture and different ways of thinking when they have points of comparison.
Abundant resources: each thematic module is a learning package containing 
a. Four representative movies: complete version, in high quality DVDs
b. One movie appreciation guide: bilingual, colorful print, includes background information, critiques of certain episodes, introduction and discussion of “culture points”, “knowledge link” and interactive exercises. Also suitable for self learners.
c. One multi-media interactive teaching DVD: includes classic episodes with bilingual scripts; may serves as teaching guides, role play guides, etc.     
d. One set of theme cards: each module contains a set of 8 cards with exquisite pictures and classic catchphrases; may be used as postcards or bookmarks. For example, the theme cards in the Chinese History module feature classic Chinese relics, paintings and calligraphy, and classic philosophic sayings.

China in Movies can be used as “culture readers” by the general public interested in Chinese culture and movies, or as textbooks by teachers of Chinese language and culture at the intermediary level and above, in or outside the classroom. In the classroom, teachers can use it to organize movie appreciation or discussion sessions, or to supplement language study and diversify language input.
