Japanese: The Spoken Language Part 3, Supplement: Japanese Typescript

Image of Japanese: The Spoken Language, Part 3 - Supplement: Japanese Typescript
Author: Eleanor Harz Jorden
Publisher: Yale University Press (1990)
Binding: Paperback, 58 pages
Summary:
Japanese: The Spoken Language has been written by Eleanor Harz Jorden, with collaboration by Mari Noda, to replace her widely used Beginning Japanese in introductory and intermediate courses. Extensive changes and innovations are incorporated into this three-volume textbook to improve it as a teaching tool. Stressing Japanese as it is spoken today in Japan, the books introduce the language in a totally systematic fashion and in manageable segments, so that students who have mastered the full thirty lessons can handle the spoken language with considerable facility. The core conversations—all brief and natural—cover situations in which foreigners typically find themselves interacting with Japanese. They include topics ranging from asking directions and ordering a meal to more challenging discussions on how to refuse, criticize, disagree, and complain. Hundreds of drills—incorporating thousands of exchanges—are all in a response format, so that each exchange constitutes a mini-conversation. Explanations, presented in the detail and depth that a newcomer to the Japanese language urgently requires, offers not only linguistic analysis but also careful descriptions of how the language is used within Japanese society. They include such important topics as hierarchy, in-group/out-group differentiation, and avoidance of confrontation. Supplementary material provides outlines for the utilization of what has been introduced, check-ups on structure, and comprehension checks based on accompanying audiotapes.

Author: Hai-tao Tang, Yih-jian Tai, Perry Link, Ta-tuan Ch'en
Publisher: Princeton University Press (1994)
Binding: Paperback, 204 pages
Summary:
"Four experienced teachers of beginning Chinese have developed this introductory textbook. A pilot edition has been tested widely in classrooms and refined over a period of years. Among its salient features are lessons that are lively, amusing, and relevant to everyday life: concentrated training of ear and tongue in the sound system of Chinese; extensive grammar notes, clearly presented, with attention to mistakes English-speakers are likely to make; a carefully sequenced character workbook embodying a new and effective approach to the learning of Chinese characters; and audiovisual reinforcement via a complete set of audiotapes and two videotapes, one of which offers entertaining dramatizations of the lesson dialogues. The Chinese Primer is available in two versions, one using the GR system of romanization, which employs different spellings instead of diacritical marks for different tones, the other using Pinyin romanization. The contents of the four volumes are as follows: (1) Blue Book [Lessons]: Introduction; foundation work on pronunciation; lesson dialogues in romanized Chinese and English; appendices; glossary-index. (2) Red Book [Notes and Exercises]: Vocabularies; grammar notes and culture notes keyed to the lessons; exercises. (3) Yellow Book [Character Workbook]: workbook. (4) Green Book [Pinyin Character Text]: Texts of the lessons in both traditional and simplified Chinese characters, and a Chinese introduction for teachers."
