TCI/TPRS with Chinese Characteristics


by Terry Waltz


A short, to-the-point introduction about practical methods of teaching ALL languages — not just Chinese — through TPRS/CI. Special attention is paid to the “LOUF” languages (languages of unusual features) and their literacy and other challenges. Great for any teacher considering or practicing TCI or TPRS®.



Have you read or heard about TPRS, but don’t quite know where to begin? A little hesitant about teaching a “hard” language like Chinese using Comprehensible Input? TPRS with Chinese Characteristics summarizes fifteen years of teaching Chinese using TPRS/CI. Focused on classroom practice, the book presents tested, effective strategies and skills that will allow you to leave the myth of Chinese as a “difficult” language far behind your students. From tones, Pinyin, and reading instruction to writing prompts and output, TPRS with Chinese Characteristics fills in the gap between “traditional” Spanish- and French-focused TPRS training and the special challenges faced by students of Chinese.


(This edition is in Chinese only. There is no English content. However, the Chinese translation which was done by a Mandarin teacher and edited by the author parallels the English content of the 2015 edition exactly, for ease of bilingual reference.)
