5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Good Companion for Self-Study Programs 24 décembre 2011
Par Ronald - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have taken the slowest possible way to learning spoken and written Chinese language, i.e. the self-study approach. In doing this, I have needed the best possible tools to help me organize a program and to keep on track with a steady sense of progress. One of the tools that I have found most helpful is this short 120-page book written by a husband-and-wife team, Qin Xue Herzberg and Larry Herzberg, both of whom teach college level Chinese language courses at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

What does one want from a grammar book for self-study? For me, it's a combination of clarity and challenge. I want to be able to understand the principles that are being laid out without needing to enroll in a time-consuming and expensive course at the same time that I want to have the sense that nothing is being given to me in too simple a way. I want a challenge; I want to feel that I have to work for what I am getting. Not because I am a masochist, but because in my experience the effort reinforces the learning. I want to feel that I am confronting new but useful structures all the time, and I want as much Chinese language as possible included in the lessons so that I am not getting everything second hand through English instruction. In this way, I can work on important language structures and also pick up important vocabulary along the way.

The Herzbergs have produced just the right book for someone who is taking my approach. In thirteen compact chapters they lay out important principles relating to word order, parts of speech, special particles, special word choice issues, and even some letter-writing formalities (though I think one would be hard-pressed to find real letter writers anymore). Each chapter covers basic issues and refinements of those issues in ways that will produce not mere parrots of the usual textbook dialogues but sophisticated users of the language tuned in to the distinctions between the various shades of meaning of the word "can," for example, or between various words and structures for expressing the concept "to be."

The whole book is laid out clearly, is written in a plain and straight-forward style, and includes at times a sense of humor. The chapter covering the word "can," for instance, is sub-titled "A Huge Can of Worms." The lessons include correct Chinese structures and word choices, as one would expect, but the authors have also drawn on their combined teaching experience to provide us with what are probably the most common mistakes that English-language students make by trying to translate native expressions verbatim into Chinese. This is a valuable addition to the text because it helps one understand important differences in conceptual patterns between second-language learners and native speakers.

All-in-all this is a very useful book, whether you are learning on your own or in a classroom setting. I do wish the book might have a second part (keyed somehow to the first) that contained short readings (maybe a half-page in length) drawing on the patterns and vocabulary presented in the book. And it might be time to convert that last chapter on letter-writing into a chapter on emailing and blogging!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Encourages you to think in Chinese 22 avril 2012
Par Colin McLarty - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book goes directly to the basic differences between Chinese and English grammar. Textbooks tend to favor Chinese sentences close to English grammar. Sentences like "Ta yangle haizi"/"He raised children." I take this example from a textbook I will not name since it is no worse than most. They mean to be helpful but they obscure the intriguing differences and they appeal to English-language intuitions. This book encourages you to think in Chinese.

It is all too natural for English speakers to read "Ta yangle haizi" as if the Chinese "yangle" is the past tense "raised." Textbooks rely on this to make students comfortable. But it is wrong. Verbs in Chinese do not have tenses, rather the sentences convey tense information. It is misleading to treat "yangle" as one word in the first place. Rather "yang le" is two words expressing "raise" and the idea of completing.

The Herzbergs explain this by clear examples of sentence tense and of different uses of "le." For example, "Ta chi le" can mean either "He just ate" or "He wants to eat." This is unnatural to English speakers since in English those are opposites. It is natural in Chinese because "he eat complete" can name either an existing state of affairs or a desired one, depending on context.

The particle "le" by itself has no natural meaning in English. It is natural Chinese.

This book gives numerous examples of patterns not natural in English which are natural in Chinese. The ease and clarity of presentation make these patterns natural to US students.

As other reviewers have said, the Herzbergs are one native speaker of Standard Chinese and one of English, both accomplished teachers of Chinese to American students. Their China Survival Guide: How To Avoid Travel Troubles and Mortifying Mishaps, Revised Edition shows their skill at describing and enjoying cultural differences. I bought this book because of that one.

For a quick start at learning Chinese-language grammatical intuitions, for English speakers, this is the book.

I am a student in my second year of taking Chinese in college. Since finishing my first year of Chinese, I have begun to wish that I could have the basic grammar patterns of Chinese written down for me, to help me apply my knowledge outside of the classroom. Sure, I can understand the patterns in class, but outside of class I am often lost. This book is an amazing learning tool to have. It's easy to follow along and it's incredibly helpful. It's the perfect size for carrying around and pulling out when the homework gets tough. '''''''

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Extremely helpful review tool 24 juillet 2011

Having studied Chinese formally for two years, this book serves as the perfect review tool to refresh my knowledge and help me retain what I studied in class years ago. As I continue to study on my own, I am constantly turning to this book for easy and clear reference--it is a beautifully succinct collection of the important and essential grammar that I learned over the two years, neatly condensed into a handy tool I can take with me as I live and travel in China. Definitely recommended to anyone considering study of Chinese or anyone who wants a great way to help them remember what they've already learned.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very helpful, well-written and understandable Chinese guide 21 décembre 2010
Par Cal Jen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
In their recent book, "Basic Patterns of Chinese Grammar", husband and wife team of Chinese language professors Larry and Qin Xue Herzberg have written a very helpful and understandable Chinese language guide for beginning and intermediate Chinese language students, and can also be used by anyone wanting to learn some of the basics of Chinese grammar. They provide clear examples of correct approaches along with typical incorrect approaches in Chinese characters and in pinyin spelling to make it easy to read and understand. They write with a clear passion for not only teaching the Chinese language, but also have a passion for China and the Chinese people and culture along with a passion for cross cultural understanding and relationships. They have a heart for teaching the language and culture with historical and contemporary notes and applications, and always maintain their kind and cheerful sense of humor throughout. I would highly recommend this easy to read book on learning the basics of Chinese grammar to any student, visitor, or business person, or government representative. It's both insightful and delightful.
