PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This file has ready-to-print,large 120-pt font question words in Chinese (simplified script) with their English meanings. No pinyin is displayed. For example: 什么 what 谁 who 几点 at what time

The page format is for printing on 11 by 17 inch "ledger" sized paper. If you do not have access to a printer for 11x17, you may resize the page and may need to adjust some of the spacing to optimize printing.

My rationale for not showing pinyin: I will be saying the word aloud and pointing to its meaning as I say it. Over time, students pick up the sound and meaning of the words. I also occasionally ask students to spell the words to make sure they can type them. I have used colors Terry Waltz assigns to each tone (see http://www.terrywaltz.com/terry-waltz-tprs-tonally-orthographic-pinyin.php for information about the colors).

Several useful words for building stories are also included: 以前 before、如果 if、然后 and then... etc.

Teaching these question and structural words happens over the course of the school year in asking students questions and discussing topics. I print these words, cut them out, and post them at the front of the classroom. As I talk with students in class, I pause and point to the question words to clarify meaning as needed. Helpful especially for TPRS and Comprehensible Input teachers of Mandarin Chinese.
