Ten Stories for Increasing Chinese Reading Fluency (Simplified Characters, download & print)
These ten stories are designed for novice-proficiency readers of Modern Standard (Mandarin) Chinese to increase reading fluency. Reading fluency here means the reader's ability to keep track of meaning in the text and to do so more quickly with more practice. Each story follows a repetitive design using only common words from a Chinese frequency dictionary. The stories are downloadable in PDF format, and are designed to be printed on plain paper, folded in half, and placed on display in a classroom library for self-selected reading. Additional audio files become available for $2 after purchase of this PDF file.
