Paperback: $27.02

The usual approach to expanding vocabulary is to use a topic /situation based technique. This works well if the topics/situations are ones that the student may use, or is interested in them. However... More > it is by its nature random in the choice of words it introduces and furthermore the problem of how the student can quickly learn how to write all these different characters is never seriously addressed. There are however, other approaches that could be used, that could offer the student a better investment on the time they spend, but up to now they have not been explored by Teachers, This book introduces one such approach, by looking at and understanding repetition in Mandarin Chinese. This book will not be looking at repetition as in 爸爸 妈妈 or in phrases such as 多多少少 etc What we will be focusing on is repetition of meaning in a word that uses two different characters in Chinese. We think this could open up new ways of thinking about the language for students studying Chinese.< Less
Dame Wang and Other Chinese Folk Songs By Keith Robinson & Wang Lingli
Paperback: $18.76

In 1872 George Carter Stent published five Chinese folk tunes with the melody and lyrics in an article called “ Chinese Lyrics” . I think they are quite significant examples of a genre of... More > Chinese folk song that is now less popular. With the help of Wang lingli 王玲利 we have translated the traditional Chinese into Simplified Chinese and provided fresh English translations. I have created new original piano accompaniments for each song. My aim is to try and make the melodies more accessible to western audiences and singers. The songs are published in Chinese with the pinyin above. In addition there is a complete version of the Chinese lyrics with tones and pinyin and an English translation to explain what each song is about. My dream is that one day I will go to a song recital and hear Chinese songs sung in Chinese, just as we listen to Schubert’s lieder sung in German, or Faure songs sung in French, and it will seem completely normal.< Less
