The Chinese Odyssey, Volume 6 textbook solidifies students’ competence in modern Chinese communication. In year three of Chinese Odyssey, students will carry on more sophisticated discussions in Chinese and learn to express themselves in writing. The book’s five lessons contain dialogues and texts, clear and detailed explanations of grammar rules and language usage, coordinated grammar and communication exercises, and cultural material. Lesson topics in Volumes 5 & 6 range from traditional Chinese marriage customs, to the Chinese political system and its administrative structure, to the state of environmental protection and pollution in China. This book is intended to cover the second semester of third-year Chinese for students in high school or college. This book includes practice exercises integrated throughout each section of the textbook, eliminating the need for a separate workbook. At the end of each lesson, Comprehensive Exercises integrate listening, speaking, reading, writing, and grammar practice. These exercises are the same as the exercises in the multimedia CD-ROM. Exercises and quizzes in all volumes are modeled after the HSK, China’s standardized test of Chinese for foreign learners, making Chinese Odyssey the ideal series for anyone who plans to study or work in China. This book presents traditional and simplified characters on facing pages, to encourage fluency in students who wish to study and compare the two forms.

Image of Handbook of Korean Vocabulary: A Resource for Word Recognition and Comprehension (English and Korean Edition)
Author: William O'Grady, Miho Choo
Publisher: University of Hawaii Press (1996)
Binding: Paperback, 387 pages
Summary:
Vocabulary learning is the single most important component of second-language acquisition. In cases where the second language is unrelated to the learner's native tongue, this task presents special challenges because there are typically few clues in a word's form to assist in learning and remembering its meaning. This book offers a solution to this problem for students of Korean. The Handbook is the first ever "root dictionary" of Korean designed for second-language learners. Useful for students at all levels, it contains more than 1,500 vocabulary lists consisting of words built from a shared root. These lists offer a unique and efficient way for students to acquire new words. Upon encountering a word, students can consult the lists for its component roots and discover many other semantically related words built from the same elements.

Speech Acts in Japanese

Summary:
We perform speech acts when we offer an apology, greeting, request, complaint, invitation, compliment, or refusal. A speech act is an utterance that serves a function in communication. A speech act might contain just one word, as in "Sorry!" to perform an apology, or several words or sentences: "I’m sorry I forgot your birthday. I just let it slip my mind." Speech acts include real-life interactions and require not only knowledge of the language but also appropriate use of that language within a given culture. Below is a list of speech acts that are being researched a CARLA. Within each category you will find basic information about the speech act, as well as teaching tips, sample exercises, and past research findings.
