Ni Hao, Volume 2 is the second level of the Ni Hao series and is ideally suited to students in middle school or high school.
As in Ni Hao, Volume 1, Chinese characters are used extensively throughout the text and are accompanied by pinyin which acts as a guide to pronunciation. Pinyin is gradually omitted as the student becomes familiar with the characters and vocabulary. Chinese culture related to the content of each lesson is introduced in the “Something to know” section, designed to enrich cultural understanding and generate interest in learning the language.
Ni Hao, Volume 2 introduces more than 440 words and phrases and 140 written characters. Appendices with Chinese-English and English-Chinese “Words and Expressions” contain pinyin, English, and traditional and simplified character listings for words learned in the text. This textbook is in traditional characters.
