Abstract When learning any language-especially one as different from English as Chinese is-it's always good to start with the basics. From "Hello" and "Goodbye" to "Happy holiday!" and the best ways to identify one's self by name, this program introduces beginning Chinese speakers to practical vocabulary and phrasing techniques. Cultural topics include: how Chinese children learn to speak and write their language, how the average Chinese citizen's passion for fitness relates to ancient beliefs, and how the Chinese celebrate their national identity.
