Chinese Biographies: Jeremy Lin

Chinese Biographies: Jeremy Lin is the forthcoming and fifth title in Cheng & Tsui’s award-winning Chinese Biographies series. The latest title in this award-winning series tells the story of overnight sensation Jeremy Lin, from his childhood, his time at Harvard, to his meteoric rise as a bench player for the New York Knicks, and then as a starter for the Houston Rockets.

Chronicling the life of contemporary cultural icons with connection to the Chinese speaking world, the Chinese Biographies series combines compelling biographies and a unique approach to pinyin annotation that enhances reading comprehension and students’ knowledge of Chinese word patterns and sentence structures.
Chinese Biographies’ resource-rich companion website contains free mp3 audio downloads, comprehension exercises, vocabulary lists, grammar notes, sentence pattern exercises, and English translations that aid both classroom and independent learning.


About the Series:

Pinyin Annotated Readers to Improve Chinese Reading Comprehension

Chinese Biographies chronicles the lives of pop culture icons with connections to the Chinese-speaking world. Learning about world-renowned personalities from fields such as sports, music, and fashion helps engage student interest, while reading practice will boost their confidence and enjoyment of the language.

Targeted at North American high school and college language learners, this award-winning series of readers focuses on international celebrities like Jay Chao, Lang Lang, Ang Lee, Yao Ming, Jeremy Lin, and Vera Wang to maintain a cultural context relevant to American students.

Pinyin annotation accompanies the simplified Chinese characters so beginning-to intermediate-level students can read without the aid of a dictionary for pronunciation. Unlike other readers at this level, the pinyin is separated by word rather than syllable, giving students a better understanding of how Chinese characters come together to form words and sentences.

These engaging biographies are designed for students who have mastered 1000-1200 vocabulary words. Each chapter is preceded and followed by comprehension questions to facilitate dialogue between teachers and students. The Chinese Biographies Companion Website includes additional exercises to improve students’ grammar and vocabulary as well as providing access to mp3 audios, class handouts, and vocabulary lists. Chinese Biographies are ideal readers for both classroom instruction and independent learning.

Online resources include:
•Audio Downloads
•Comprehension Exercises
•Grammar Notes
•English Translations
•Sentence Pattern Exercises
•Vocabulary Lists

Features:

•Accessible language, ideal for beginning and intermediate students
•Pinyin annotation is separated by word rather than character
•Pre- and post-reading comprehension questions
•For high school and college students with mastery of 1000-1200 vocabulary words
•Free companion website with audio, vocabulary lists, and multimedia

Reviews:

"...providing simplified readers with phonetic transcriptions directly associated with the words is a very good and pedagogically valid step. Such readers are scarce in Chinese. Ms Wu used technology as an enabler to both create and share the material online, setting an excellent example." - Dr. Eleni Miltsakaki, Institute of Research in Cognitive Science, University of Pennsylvania

Learning how to read Chinese involves learning, literally, thousands of characters whose correspondence to sounds is not as neat as in western languages, i.e., it would be hard to "sound out" word that you haven't seen before in writing. Simplifying the task by providing simplified readers with phonetic transcriptions directly associated with the words is a very good and pedagogically valid step. Such readers are scarce in Chinese. Ms Wu used technology as an enabler to both create and share the material online, setting an excellent example. It would be great if Ms Wu utilized a linguistic and conceptual model for controlling the readability level of the text. That would be especially useful not only for heritage speakers but also for speakers learning Chinese as a foreign language.
