Chinese Teaching Textbook and the Interactive Whiteboard Software Based on HSK is a series of multimedia textbooks designed and compiled by Confucius Institute at Alfred University in the U.S. and the School of Media and Communication of China University of Geosciences (Wuhan) in China.
It is targeted at the overseas Chinese teachers and learners, especially at American classrooms where Interactive Whiteboard system is widely used. From the framework design to the selection and arrangement of the language content, the compilers have taken into consideration the daily life, study habit and mentality of the American students. The learning materials, from the situational conversations and grammar to Chinese culture, are presented by means of flashes, cartoons, videos and interactive games. In addition, various interactive lesson plans, classroom exercises and activities are added for teachers’ convenience. Above all, most of the content in the textbook can be displayed and operated in Whiteboard system.
The entire series is composed of 4 textbooks from Level 1 to Level 4, perfectly matching the level requirements of New Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK). The vocabulary, grammar and sentence patterns listed on HSK syllabus are covered in the textbook so that students can get familiar with HSK as they learn and get prepared for the test.
Hopefully, Explore Chinese can be of great help for the study of Chinese learners in North America and for the promotion of HSK as well. We are grateful for the support from Hanban/Confucius Institute Headquarters, and for the hard work of the compilers and the software developers.
