About This Book

The Enhanced Edition (2020) of Chinese Reading and Writing 4 is a continuation of Chinese Reading and Writing 3. This book introduces 50 new Chinese characters, which are selected based on their places in Chinese character occurring frequency, and their places in Mandarin Express series. 

An expanded list of 222 vocabularies is created with these new characters, enabling students to read and write longer Chinese texts. At this level, the practice of reading and writing can also make a positive impact on students’ listening and speaking abilities. 

On top of that, 4 grammar points are introduced. And two old Chinese characters are reintroduced for their second pronunciations and meanings. The exercise sections includes 217 sentences, 14 conversations, and 6 narratives.  

19 online video lessons are produced for this book, teaching how to read and write characters, their meanings, words and combinations, and also explaining the grammar points. These online lessons can be accessed by scanning the QR codes on the pages or be watched at here.

This book supports Chinese Learning Pen, which is a digital device to bring out the audio output from the pages. It is the perfect tool to accelerate the character recognitions and to improve Chinese pronunciations. 

On completing this book, students will have thoroughly studied 220 Chinese characters and have practiced how to use them extensively in sentences and paragraphs, conversations and narratives. Their abilities in reading and writing Chinese will go up to a new level.

Structure of the book

This book includes:

  • Five Lesson Chapters: Lesson 16 to Lesson 20
  • One Review Chapter: Review 4
  • Book 1-4 Total Character Count
  • Stroke Order Chart

The structure of the book follows the pattern of Awareness - Expansion - Practice - Consolidation,  which has proved to be very effective to learn how to read and write Chinese while placing learning individual characters as the first step. 

The stroke order chart at the end of the book is for references only. Whether or not following these particular orders is not the most critical thing to learn Chinese. Read more about this topic here.
