For all beginning-level learners of Chinese and beyond, this new set of BuilderCards includes all essential vocabulary found in Level 1 of the best-selling series, Integrated Chinese, with both simplified and traditional characters on each card.

Much more than a set of flashcards, BuilderCards are uniquely designed to help students build their Chinese vocabulary by understanding how groups of words are related.

Research on second-language acquisition has proven that learning groups of associated words is the fastest way to build vocabulary. Using a carefully sequenced order, students will learn about 700 headwords plus more than 2,000 associated words that are linguistically, semantically, and pedagogically related to the headwords, and build mnemonic connections that will help them recall definitions and interpret unfamiliar words from context.

The format of BuilderCards allows for a wealth of information, including part of speech, English definition, and pinyin, plus information on radicals and numbers of strokes. This thoroughly designed set will give students confidence as they prepare to take the HSK, SAT II Chinese, AP Chinese, or other Chinese proficiency tests.
