Update changes to existing Primary Chinese textbooks P1 - P4

Postby snowcloud » Fri Nov 30, 2012 3:50 pm

Hi all,

went to popular bookstore just now to check on the revised Chinese textbooks. I found some minor changes to the existing books unless I overlook something when I checkthrough. Pls see below for the changes:

P1A
there are 2 pages whereby the position of the Chinese character has changed. Page 87 and page 101. same page anyway so not to worry.

the only added portion is behind the word list. They have additional chinese-english word list behind the usual chinese word list.


P2A
no changes to the chapters. only added in the chinese-english word list behind the usual chinese word list.

P3A(normal Chinese)
last chapter which is chapter 11 大水灾has been removed.
additional chinese-english word list behind the usual chinese word list.

P3A(Higher Chinese)
last chapter which is chapter 11 大水灾has been removed.
No additional chinese-english word list.

P4A
last chapter which is chapter 11 我是什么 has been removed.
additional chinese-english word list behind the usual chinese word list.

P5
No revised edition

P6
No revised edition

Btw, all primary Chinese textbooks are available at popular Nex. For P3 and P4, only book A available cos book B will only release in Jun 2013.

Hope the above info helps.

Thanks!

Seems like minor revision only. Perhaps no need to buy new edition textbooks :idea:

I was captured by the "new yellow" cover of this Handbook. Take out the copy I have at home which is the 2009 edition. Do a quick comparison and found minor changes on page 1:-

Hi,
I only managed to find this differences in the 2A Normal Chinese textbook; not sure about other pages nor the 2B textbook.

I was at Popular just now and brought the 2A 手册 with me so did a quick comparison with the revised edition. In the end found quite substantial changes so decided to get the revised edition 2A & 2B for my DD2.

Hi,
I don't have the books with me now so try to recall what I seen yesterday and this only apply to the 2A book that I compare. There are more words under the 识读词语 column for a few chapters that I browsed thru.

Thanks Champion. :smile: For myself, I am more concern with any added new chapters and new vocabulary words to the existing books. I will drop by popular on of these few days to see if there is any more changes to it.
