TOCFL A 級華語文能力測驗能力說明（閱讀）
敬祝利用本書的學習者們都能掌握 A 級的中文語法點，並順利通過考試！
All basic grammar points were collected and included in The Ultimate Illustrated Chinese Grammar Guide, making it an excellent reference guide for entry and basic level students and their teachers. It is also ideal for individuals preparing for the TOCFL Band A and Chinese language learners who wish to study basic Chinese grammar on their own. It includes systematic exercises, drills, and self-evaluation tests. It can be used by teachers as a reference book when teaching Chinese.
This book is designed to be dynamic and engaging to make studying Chinese more interesting and to increase student motivation. The exercises and content are designed to make preparing for the TOCFL Band A easier and to give Chinese language learners a better overall understanding of Chinese grammar.
Grammar points are arranged according to level and difficulty. Sentence patterns are introduced gradually. More advanced grammar points do not appear in the text “before their time,” making learning more enjoyable and less stressful. In addition, grammar points are integrated into topics that deal with daily life and that match with the TOCFL vocabulary found in Band A. Learners that practice the sentences patterns frequently will find it easy to apply them to their daily lives. The principles used in this book correspond to the language learning ability index.
TOCFL Band A (Reading)
Level 1: With the help of visual aids, the Level 1 test taker is able to understand the most basic numerals, characters or phrases, and make a gist of a sentence.
Level 2: The Level 2 test taker can understand very short, simple texts with everyday or job-related vocabulary items.
In addition to illustrations and example sentences, each grammar point includes structure explanations and exercises. Learners can take the tests included in the book to determine whether they have absorbed the relevant grammar points. Three mock tests are included at the end of the book to help students get a better grasp of grammar points and build up confidence as they prepare for their test.
I wish you the best of luck as you prepare for the TOCFL Band A.
