Just as children gain literacy in their native language by reading, learners of a foreign language must read large amounts of level-appropriate books and material to attain fluency in their target language. Tales and Traditions was specially created to help learners of Chinese achieve that goal, by collecting adaptations and selections from the most well-known works in the Chinese literary and folk canon in a series of convenient supplementary readers.
Perfect for class instruction or pleasure reading outside of class, Tales and Traditions exposes students to a wealth of information essential for the development of cultural fluency in Chinese. This series of graded readings will be especially welcomed as the Advanced Placement exam and other standardized tests of Chinese require knowledge of China’s literary, cultural, and historical traditions.
Each reading appears in simplified and traditional characters (on facing pages), followed by a vocabulary list and questions for discussion in both Chinese and English. English abstracts are provided in an appendix, to assist student comprehension. Volume 1 also contains an appendix of the texts in simplified characters with pinyin for readers still learning Chinese pronunciation.
About the Readings in Chinese Literature Series
Each of the four volumes of Tales and Traditions was written using language appropriate for learners at different levels of Chinese proficiency: from advanced-beginning in Volume 1 through advanced in Volume 4 (forthcoming). The first volume for beginning learners contains fables and literary quotations, sayings from classical philosophers, and myths and legends. Volume 2, for intermediate learners, contains love stories, fantasies, folk stories, and more fables and literary quotations. Volumes 3 and 4 will present more difficult stories for upper-intermediate and advanced level students. With this series students will be well on their way to becoming avid, lifelong readers in Chinese.
