Item description for Teaching And Learning Chinese As a Foreign Language: A Pedagogical Grammar by Janet Zhiqun Xing...

This book provides a research-based account of how to teach and learn Chinese as a foreign language. In addition to the discussion of relevant second/foreign language research, this volume gives detailed information on ways to develop a pedagogical model that is uniquely suited to teaching Chinese in five key areas: pronunciation (tones and pinyin), characters and words, sentences (when and why different sentence structures are used), discourse and pragmatic competence (coherence and genre), and cultural competence. Specially written for Chinese language teachers, student teachers and applied linguists, this is the first book written in English that systematically addresses all major aspects involved in teaching and learning Chinese as a foreign language. This book covers all the fundamental grammar elements in Chinese, explains their functions in discourse and communication, and explores different strategies for teaching and engaging students in learning the language.

Reviews - What do customers think about Teaching And Learning Chinese As a Foreign Language: A Pedagogical Grammar?

Disappointing  Mar 11, 2008
I'm not sure for whom this grammar is written. It has a usful review of the history and current state of chinese teaching in the US, but it has very little practical information for the teacher. The grammar explanations and examples are overly complex and have almost no pedagological function. The sample sylabi at the back, however, are invaluable.
