My Pri.2 Chinese Textbook

How many of you still keep your Chinese or Mother Tongue textbook of more than 35 years ago? I still have mine and it’s still in rather good condition – no “dog-ear”!

This is the front cover of the 3 textbooks (A,B and C). Note that the first Chinese character (Red box) of the word Singapore then – there were 2 ways of writing it!

See the other way of writing it (Red circled – the publisher printed on the same book at the back page);

One was written as “New” and the other was “Star”. Now we use the character “New”.

    Thanks for sharing. Huayu not so cool those days eh? Reminds me of our very fierce Chinese teacher in Pr 6. We called him Mao Tze Tung.

    Wonderful. A great site. It brought back memories of my days spent learning Han Yu Pin Ying and also the wonderful times roaming along railroad track looking for spiders and guppies. I even remember the cover of the text books.
