Item Description...

The Kung Fu series, a set of learning material on the Chinese language, is the product of collaborative efforts of experts from mainland China, Hong Kong and the U.S. It aims at providing texts and exercises that will have fresh and accurate language, communicate effectively with an international audience, have clear and orderly structural explanations, and contain a good number of contextual, task-based exercises for stimulating students to higher levels of fluency.

Kung Fu (I) is the first volume in the series and is meant to satisfy the requirements of an elementary Chinese program. There are twenty-two lessons in total, each including: lesson text in Chinese characters; vocabulary, with contextual examples for selected entries; supplementary vocabulary; grammar notes: points of structure are explained fully, with adequate contextual examples as reinforcement; phrases and sentences, a series of phrases and complete declarative, imperative, interrogative, or exclamatory sentences for drill reinforcement of new material; lesson text in pinyin romanization; lesson text in English translation; task-based classroom activities; and reading comprehension for selected lessons.

These twenty-two lessons are preceded by eight that systematically cover the sound structure of Putonghua and introduce expressions routinely used in class.

A separate Student Exercise Manual is also available for use by students outside class. The manual is designed to be used in conjunction with the Kung Fu textbook. It contains two types of material for use by students outside class: (1) Chinese script introduction and practice and (2) exercises on material introduced in each lesson of the Kung Fu (I)text.

The Kung Fu exercises are self-explanatory. Chinese writing material includes: the standard simplified version of characters introduced in each lesson; stroke-by-stroke break down of each newly introduced character; the radical, or indicator, of each character; the traditional form of the character in the far right column, should it differ from the simplified; and a gridded page for writing practice once correct stroke order has been learned.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent Mandarin textbook!  Jun 27, 2006
Kung Fu (I): An Elementary Chinese Text is a wonderful resource for Mandarin instruction and learning. Material is graded for intermediate level students, but will be appreciated by beginners as well. Lessons utilize English, Pinyin and both Simplified and Traditional characters. I highly recommend Kung Fu (I): An Elementary Chinese Text to any serious Mandarin student.
Very Good  Aug 31, 2004
Excellent book for anyone interested in learning Mandarin Chinese. Its texts are fresh, interesting and up-to-date. (Unlike the outdated/boring topics used in many other Chinese text books). Even though Kung Fu (I) is meant to be used for classes in universities, it is also very suitable for self-study.
Superficial book  Aug 28, 2003
I like Chinese kung-fu very much. But this book isn't the sort of stuff that will appeal to me, for it's very superifical, without touching on the deep and varied tradition of the martial arts.
