The Huanying, Volume 1 textbook is designed for learners who have no prior knowledge of Chinese. The textbook contains enough material to cover a full-year course and includes six units, each with a specific communication theme and each containing learning objectives, five lessons, a unit review, and end-of-unit self-assessment. Each lesson has two dialogues or texts, a new word list, language notes, cultural notes, Pronunciation Practice (Units 1-3), a more extensive glimpse into Chinese culture (Units 4-6), and some knowledge-related language activities. In Volume 1, the first few lessons introduce the fundamentals of the spoken and written language, with guided practice in pronunciation and character writing. Three indexes (vocabulary, proper nouns and language notes) are included, as well as three helpful appendixes (pinyin tone & spelling rules, character strokes & radicals, and each lesson's dialogues & texts in traditional characters). The lessons in this book are in simplified characters, with English and pinyin. Traditional characters are included in vocabulary lists and indexes.
