The Study of Materials Used for Teaching Novices Rapid Mastery of Spoken Chinese Abstract Excellent teaching material is key to successfully learning a language. What would the ideal teaching materials be? Typically, the materials used for teaching a language must account for covering all aspects of language learning. For example, Practical Audio-Visual Chinese, the book currently used by most universities in Taiwan, utilizes a step by step approach. It starts by teaching pronunciation and, then, adds grammar as students learn to read and write characters; however, the rapid mastery course is a short term approach; therefore, the materials should be specially designed to meet the students' needs. This dissertation sets forth the method for designing the ideal short-term, rapid-mastery course. The "Survival Chinese" program I have designed concentrates only on speaking and listening skills, and it employs the Han Yu pinyin system of Romanization. The first step is to determine the students' needs through the use of interviews and a questionnaire. Next, the currently available materials and teaching methods are researched. Once this is done, the previous material is reviewed and updated as necessary to better meet the students' needs. Finally, the material is evaluated through in-class use to see if it is interesting, practical, and easy to learn.
