The Huanying, Volume 2 Part 1 student workbook accompanies the Volume 2 textbook in the first semester and contains a variety of engaging activities that integrate listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Communicative activities for pairs and small groups are provided as ready-to-use student worksheets with clear instructions, requiring minimal preparation time for teachers. Activities progress from structured (such as vocabulary matching and “How do you say it in Chinese?”) to open-ended (such as pair or group interviews), building accuracy and fluency in a cultural context and encouraging critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making.
In Volume 2, students can create an invitation to a Moon Festival party, interview classmates about their cell phone usage, make travel suggestions to a pen pal who will visit from China, and more. Games such as bingo, crossword puzzles, and word searches provide fun and meaningful learning activities. Listening practice exercises are marked with an icon to indicate corresponding audio tracks available online (free with textbook purchase). Character-practice exercises, suitable for homework assignments, provide step-by-step guidance on how to write the new Chinese characters learned in each lesson. This workbook is in simplified characters, with English and pinyin.
About the series
Ideal for: grades 9–12 and also recommended for grades 7–8
Huanying: An Invitation to Chinese is the first comprehensive secondary-school series written by experienced teachers in North American schools specifically for the North American classroom based on the "5-Cs". Huanying 欢迎, which means "welcome" in Chinese, will take students to the exciting world of Chinese language and culture, where they’ll explore how, when, and why to say what to whom in Chinese.
Demand for Chinese curricular materials at the secondary school level has never been greater, and Cheng & Tsui is pleased to respond with Huanying. Developed in accordance with ACTFL National Content Standards, Huanying engages students in interactive and integrated language practice through fun and meaningful activities, contemporary topics that appeal to secondary school students, a full-color textbook design, and additional resources that will reduce teacher preparation time and allow teachers to focus on teaching. The four-volume series will cover four years of instruction at the secondary school level. Volumes 1-3 are now available.
The textbooks are organized around topics that are essential to everyday communication, such as greetings, family, everyday items, dates and times, transportation, food and drink, and school. Volumes 1 and 2 consist of six units, Volume 3 has four units. Each unit contains five lessons and a review lesson. Volumes 1 and 2 introduce approximately 500 essential vocabulary terms each. Volume 3 features over 300 words. In addition, Volume 1 includes about 150 supplementary words and Volume 2 includes about 300 supplementary words. Accurate language use is introduced through simple yet systematic language notes. Activities in the corresponding workbooks are skill-integrated, meaning nearly all exercises involve two or more language skills; this mirrors real-life use and helps improve students’ overall language proficiency.
Huanying contains the perfect mix of ingredients to ensure that the students’ learning experience is continuously intertwined with the “5-Cs” of foreign language learning—communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities—as established by the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning. By starting with a communicative approach and combining it with carefully crafted activities that embed repetitive language practice in a meaningful context, the authors of Huanying have created a practical and learner-centered fun experience for secondary school students.
