9780692442906: TPRS with Chinese Characteristics

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.

About the Author:

Terry Waltz holds a Ph.D in Foreign Language Education (Mandarin Chinese) and is a NYS-certified teacher of Mandarin Chinese and a internationally-recognized presenter on teaching Chinese through TPRS and Comprehensible Input methodologies. She is the author of "Anna mei Banfa!", "Susan you mafan", "Josh Duyiwuer", "Tom Buhaoyisi!", the PandaRiffic reader series and numerous illustrated storybooks for emergent readers of Chinese, as well as the "Zhongwen Bu Mafan!" curriculum. Her original contributions to Mandarin pedagogy include the cold character reading method of teaching Chinese literacy, the TOP (Tonally Orthographic Pinyin) system of tonal spelling, and directional gestures for teaching Chinese tones. A qualified conference interpreter, Dr. Waltz lived in Taiwan for a decade, where she earned a second MA in Conference Interpreting at Fujen University and taught languages and interpreting at schools and government agencies around the island. She now lives in upstate New York, dividing her time between developing Chinese materials for learners and teachers, creating educational games for Squid For Brains, and continuing her longtime interpreting and translation practice in Mandarin and Spanish.
