Item description for Harsh Words: English Words for Chinese Learners by Monica Hill...

Harsh Words provides a theoretical background explaining how words are learned, and then focuses on the Chinese learner in particular. It covers vocabulary learning strategies, learning words in isolation as well as in context, testing vocabulary, common Chinese errors with words, and vocabulary activities to use in class. One chapter deals with the use of IT in vocabulary development and suggests web sites and software that teachers may want to use with their students. Each chapter contains tasks and revision questions while an answer key is provided at the end.

The book is written for teachers, whether training to be English teachers or taking refresher courses, postgraduate diplomas or masters. While much of the content is applicable to all levels of learners, teachers in secondary schools and universities will find it most useful.

No other vocabulary book focuses so closely on the unique challenges faced by the Chinese learner: from characters to letters, awareness of pronunciation in dictionaries, to meanings and multiple uses of words. Many vocabulary books are either theoretical or practical and few combine the two, with additional exercises and advice.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!
