    About this book

Pinyin Practice Books: Initials and Finals are supplementary materials of Chinese Treasure Chest Volumes 1, 2, and 3.
With a focus on introducing the initial and final sounds, they provide useful pinyin and vocabulary practices for young
learners and beginners of all ages. Pinyin Practice Book: Initials contains 63 worksheets and Pinyin Practice Book: Finals
contains 68 worksheets. These fun activities will keep learners engaged as they develop literacy skills. The words
and illustrations for each sound will appeal to the interest of young learners. The activities are designed to enable
language learners to read words, identify sounds, and acquire substantial knowledge of the new language system. In
time, they will be able to consolidate this information into patterns that lead to fluency in listening, speaking, reading,
and writing in Chinese.
