Kuaile Hanyu Level 2 CD-ROM

Chinese (Mandarin) Software


SKU: 9789814232746 Cengage

Kuaile Hanyu Level 2 CD-ROM set introduces beginning Chinese through lively animation, videos that depict real-life situations, and fun and motivating games. It is designed for upper elementary to middle-school students learning Chinese as a foreign language from the beginner level.

The multimedia program uses a spiral approach that reinforces and builds upon materials from previous lessons, and emphasizes speaking and comprehension. The situational video follows the experience of two foreign students during their stay with their host families in Beijing, as they make new friends, conduct daily activities and learn about cultural similarities and differences, Chinese etiquette and customs. Each video segment presents the vocabulary and structures from each lesson in context; it is a great way for students to gain practical knowledge of the Chinese language and culture. A variety of carefully developed game types incorporating vivid graphics, dynamic animation and sound effects makes language learning a positive and exciting experience.

The CD-ROM set comes in three graded levels (Level 1, 2 and 3) - but the software has been discontinued and we no longer have any copies of Level 3. Each level consists of 8 units with 3 lessons per unit. It features Simplified Chinese characters, native Chinese speaker pronunciation, Pinyin and English explanation. The user-interface is intuitive and easy for young learners to master.
