How was designed?

Chinese Idioms Literacy COOL had compiled the commonly used Chinese idioms where every pair of idioms is connected with the last character of the 1st idiom rhyming with the first character of the second idiom, and every four idioms follow a similar rhythm. The rhythmic pattern of the full text makes it easy for recitation and memorization. At the same time, an unfamiliar character of an appropriate difficulty level would appear in every 3 characters on average. This helps the student to learn new words easily in a relaxed manner. Such intensive and extensive word recognition and reading helps the student to progress to understanding and comprehending the meaning of the idioms much better. The integrated training also utilizes a variety of methods and questioning styles to help the student learn repetitively and apply the idioms in different situations, be it verbal communication or essay writing.

Chinese Idioms Literacy COOL is authored by Principal and Founder of Yuquan Language School Ms Song Yuhong who, with more than ten years of overseas teaching experience, specially tailored this system for those staying outside of China but has a great interest in learning the Chinese language. There is no prerequisite to learning. Regardless of whatever one’s foundation in the Chinese language or one’s age, the learning is made fun and easy. It does not matter whether one has a conducive environment for learning Chinese. The learning effectiveness of this program is high and definitely beneficial for life.

Chinese idioms are specialized vocabularies and have been used by people since ancient times. They are usually made up of four Chinese characters and each of them has a specific and unique meaning, some of which is generated from famous Chinese ancient anecdotes. Every one who learn Chinese language will have to learn Chinese idioms and many of them eventually falls in love with them and desires to express their ideas in Chinese idioms. The reason is that it is rather stylish to utilize since it condenses a long expression into just four characters. However, learning Chinese idioms sometimes can be a daunting task as it requires sheer good memory and a certain proficiency level of Chinese as well as some fine understanding of the Chinese culture. Therefore, Chinese Idioms Literacy COOL manages to solve those problems and makes learning Chinese idioms much easier and more fun.
