    《新意中文》是一套专门为海外学生编写的“海外本土化教材”,适合四岁儿童到高中生使用。教材是由美国加州执照儿童教育主管、资深中文老师陈健与中国专家学者共同研发,以她十五年全职海外中文教学经验编写而成。目前由北京语言大学出版社出版,2006年9月起向全球发行。教材的学习形式包括识字、拼音、句型、阅读、写作、中英文互译。课文内容包含中国文学、地理、历史、哲学等中国文化的丰富知识。

一、独特的教材形式

   《新意中文》全套教材共24册,课程设置为十年(1-3册为学前班,4-6册为一年级),总课时为600小时,期望达成的教学目标是识字量2500个。有简体和繁体两个版本。每册教材包括:1) 教材一本;2) 作业两本;3) 学生用字卡一份(第1册至第9册);4) 教学用大词卡一份(第1册至第9册);5) 教学用中文笔画和偏旁部首卡(第1册至第3册);6) 毛笔描字帖一本 (第1册至第15册)。《新意中文》系列中文教材还有: 8册幼儿识字中英双语教材,中英双语初级会话教材,新意汉语拼音教材和《三字经》中英双语教材。

二、新颖的启蒙识字

    科学证明,幼、少儿是用右脑整体模式识别方式来认字的。因此,从幼儿阶段开始学习汉字正有利于右脑的开发。三至五岁是儿童大脑发育最快的阶段,也是开发智力的黄金时间。如果儿童从五岁开始学汉字到入学前一年,智商可达110;要是从四岁起开始,学习两年,智商可达120;若是从三岁起开始学,学习三年,智商就能达到130左右。

《新意中文》幼儿识字中英双语教材8册以及1-3册是专为启蒙班2-5岁的学生而编写,采用独特的“涂色识字法”和“游戏识字法”。我们启蒙识字教学中将采用孩子们非常喜欢的涂色形式,让孩子们在涂涂画画中学会中文字。然后再把中文字的偏旁部首拆编成小巧的“零件”,让方块字活起来。通过拼字“积木”来激发孩子们的识字兴趣。引入美国幼儿园教学模式,让孩子们通过手工、剪贴和拼图的方式,从儿歌、韵文、小故事切入,孩子们唱着儿歌,摆着中文字的“积木”,轻轻松松学中文。同时进行组词和说话的训练。试验教学后,效果显著。本教材编排的听爸爸妈妈讲故事非常受家长和孩子们的喜爱。

三、集中认字、拼音字符教学并行

    我们从别的中文学校集中教拼音的弊端中总结经验,过于集中教拼音对学生来说是一种负担,掌握不牢,不能应用自如。《新意中文》一年级 (4-6册) 课文内容不加注拼音,韵文朗读内容加注拼音。在教新课认字的同时,每次单独教2个拼音字符认读,不强调拼读,而是让他们在以后的反复朗读、认字的过程中轻松自然地学会拼读。并尽早学习汉语拼音韵母四声的知识,以增强阅读时的语感。经过我们的教学实验证明,课文内容以认字为主,韵文朗读内容作为拼音练习,汉字和拼音字符并行的教学形式完全能达到轻松学会拼音和集中识字的要求。

四、高频字教学先行,阅读能力跟进

    经过教学实践证明,学生在认识300多个高频字时即可进入最初步的阅读状态;认识1000 个高频字就可以读懂一般书报的90%以上的内容;认识1500个高频字,就可以读懂一般书报96%以上的内容。因此,先认高频字是儿童识字提高阅读能力的快捷方式。

    本教材从一年级至四年级,先让学生认识300个常用字后,在教材中再编入阅读材料。这个阶段学生可认读1500个高频字,会写750个常用字,并进行组词、造句及初级写作训练。四年级起加强训练学生的写作能力,加大阅读量,并进行中英文互译训练。

五、词组是阅读理解的重要根基

    本教材重点字和词组有英文解释,帮助学生理解全文。

六、强调汉字形的教学

    笔画是学习汉字的基本功,本教材是让学生通过学习26种笔画和常见的44个偏旁部首来掌握汉字的形,以达到触类旁通的效果。

七、集写字与书法艺术于一体

    书法是汉字的书写艺术,是中华民族的文化瑰宝。《新意中文》教材富有创意地将学生学过的字按册印制成毛笔描字帖,可以使学生做到练书法、写字、温习生字一举三得。

八、以激发儿童学中文兴趣为依据,以传播中华文化为依托

    本教材取材来源非常之广,并参照了两岸三地各种小学课本以及各种儿童读物,内容有儿歌、故事、童话、寓言、成语故事、幽默、谜语、笑话、中国民间传说、中国神话故事、中国历史故事、中国历史名城、中国名山名水、名人轶事、文学经典名著等,从古到今,应有尽有。本教材图文并茂,课文、阅读材料、汉语拼音中均配有形象生动的插图。

Preface

Jian Chen, Founder & Principal of New Concept Chinese School

The New Concept Textbook is a Chinese language textbook that has many unique characteristics specifically and locally tailored for students from youth to teenage years. This book is completed based on the advice and approval of Chinese language specialists in addition to New Concept’s many years of overseas Chinese educational experience. After eight years of preparation for publication, this book has been tailored to students through New Concept’s research of the Chinese American lifestyle, culture, and educational environment. In doing this, the book meets the specific needs of Chinese American students and children whose families are not native to the Chinese language. 

The following describes the unique characteristics and features of the New Concept Textbook.

1. Textbook Format:

This book has three different series, a total of 36 textbooks, and workbooks for each textbook. Each Chinese character a student learns can also be learned by a unique brush calligraphy coloring/tracing section and flashcards. 

2. Textbooks for younger children (2-5 years old):

New Concept uses innovative ideas to teach younger children Chinese. Such ideas include coloring, games, music, story-telling, and hands on activities to captivate interest levels and keep up the motivation to learn Chinese. 

3. Learning Characters and Phonetics separately:

When learning Chinese Characters, Pin-Yin (Chinese phonetics) is not used. Pin-Yin is taught by learning two phonics letters per lesson and is used alongside a Chinese children’s poem. 

4. Most frequently used words are learned first:

After learning 300 Characters, short essays/stories are added for the students to read. After learning 1500 characters, students are able to read up to 90% of Chinese newspapers, books, magazines, etc. This way, a student’s reading and comprehension skills are developed faster. 

5. Important words have English translations:

This feature helps students understand the text they are reading more efficiently.

6. Emphasis of character strokes pattern:

New Concept Textbook teaches 26 types of strokes and 43 common character parts. This helps the student to efficiently memorize Chinese characters.

7. Different approaches of practicing Chinese character writing:

For example, the textbook includes sections for students to trace Chinese characters and brush calligraphy.

8. The content is based on Chinese culture as well as student interest.

There is a broad range of subjects and topics in the readings including children songs, stories, fairy tales, humorous jokes, riddles, Chinese myths, history, famous sites, etc. The content is also supported by a wide variety of pictures, illustrations, etc.

9. This textbook will be published by a famous public company in China (September, 2006) and is working to be published on the web in an online version.

We hope this textbook will become an effective tool for your children by broadening their understanding of the Chinese language and further development and success for the future.
