ABSTRACT

This current study surveys teachers and learners of advanced Chinese to explore the perception on learning advanced Chinese, and analyzes advanced Chinese textbooks in Korea. Based on this investigation, this current study suggests practical contents required for the learner in categories of conversation, pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar to explore an effective textbook development direction for advanced Chinese to satisfy the demands at the advanced learning level. Major findings are as follows. First, to fulfill the high demand in listening and speaking, textbooks should provide sufficient practice in listening and speaking based on texts that allow the learner to understand the context of the Chinese culture. Second, to alleviate the vague fear from dialog with a native speaker, the textbook should provide dialogs and interviews conducted by native speakers as much close as real situations, with practice sessions at different speeds. Third, vocabulary at the advanced Chinese level should be included in texts to allow comprehensive understanding together with the context, and frequently used words should be selected allowing practice to their usage and expansion. Forth, to satisfy the high demand in systematic vocabulary grammar education, the textbook should provide natural education and practice of grammar and actual dialog. Providing practice of the contextual feature will enhance the learner‘s Chinese language ability. Fifth, many learners find the necessity of pronunciation practice even at the advanced level, however the majority of advanced Chinese textbooks do not weigh on pronunciation practice, leaving the learner with insufficient practice in intonation, accent, or natural pronunciation. Therefore, the textbook should provide reading sessions allowing the learner to practice tone, accent, modality, pause, and stress. This current study is expected to be reference in developing advanced Chinese textbooks.
