Authorized by Hanban, HSK Standard Course is developed under the joint efforts of Beijing Language and Culture University Press and Chinese Testing International (CTI). With HSK test papers as its primary source, HSK Standard Course is characterized by a humorous style, familiar topics and a scientific course design. Matching the HSK test in all aspects, from the content, form to the levels, it is a series of new-type course books embodying the idea of “combining testing and teaching, and promoting learning and teaching by testing”. It is suitable for the Confucius Institutes in different countries as well as other Chinese teaching institutions and self-taught learners.
The whole series is divided into six levels matching the HSK test, with one volume for each of Levels 1-3 and two volumes for each of Levels 4-6, totaling nine volumes. With a textbook, a workbook and a teacher’s book in each volume, there will be altogether 27 books.
This is Teacher’s Book 4A, with altogether 10 lessons. Each lesson includes a specification of the instructional contents and objectives, an elaboration of teaching steps, and the listening scripts and reference answers for the Workbook as well. It provides teachers with all-round guidance and effective support in regard to how to use the textbook and workbook of the corresponding level.
