Doubt regarding "New Practical Chinese Reading" series

Recommended Posts

hoshinoumi

I know that the first two volumes of the series have a cultural point at the end of the lesson but what about the rest of the volumes? Do volumes 4, 5 and 6 still have the cultural notes?

Thank you!

If you can take a picture of one cultural aspect of book 4, 5 or 6 I'd appreciate it, since I do not have any of those volumes to see how cultural aspects are treated.

@hoshinoumi I have some of the older NPCR books, and it looks like the "Cultural Note 文化知识" section is something new with the 2nd edition NPCR books.  I do see this section in the table of contents for book 4 (scroll down to the table of 目录 section ).  As far as I know, there is no 2nd edition of book 5 and 6.  And so no "Cultural Note" section in those books.

Yes , in 3 and 4 for sure.

5 and 6 no as far as I can remember but the whole series is written with a cultural view in mind.

Yes they were never written. They are a great well written series but people often forget it's primarily a reader , not a spoken language book. There is a natural overlap anyway .
