Chinese Wonderland Level 1~6 with the topics based on ACTFL 5C3M for children whose first language is not Chinese. These teaching designs completely cultivate children's language skills. Level 1 includes 7 units with 21 lessons building basic language inputs such as self introduction, school terms, concepts of time, activity skills, numbers and amounts, descriptions of daily activities, and thoughts and emotions.
Chinese Wonderland is exclusively designed for young students learning Chinese as a foreign language. A complete set of the Chinese Wonderland consists of the textbook, workbook, and teacher's manual. The integration of the Backward Design is comprehensively applied to Chinese Wonderland so it helps students demonstrate their understanding and skills required on the assessment and parents can clearly see their child's progress. Each situation-based topic within the different educational materials can strengthen children’s motivation to learn. Features of Chinese Wonderland include the Chinese Wonderland six-volume text designed for young students learning Chinese in a Foreign Language class. The concept and content both comply with the standard of ACTFL and the World Language Content Standard for California Public Schools.
Chinese Wonderland Volume 1 consists of seven units including twenty-one lessons. The units include: dialogue, sentence structure, classroom terms, reading, and culture.
Dialogue - Everyday conversations with clear communicative functions and presented in conversational tone.
Sentence Structure - Spiraled and recycled sentence structures fitting with situations and listed for helping students to expend and connect. Classroom Register - Most commonly used phrases in a Chinese classroom setting.
Reading - Pieces of writing based on vocabulary and sentence structures used in the dialogues and expanded upon in every unit.
