This brand-new intermediate level textbook for modern Chinese, in two volumes, is designed for those studying on their own or for class use. Part One is task-based while Part Two is more culture based. The materials have been thoroughly class tested at Columbia (where they were developed), Yale, Indiana and MIT, all schools with strong programs in Chinese. Each lesson is fully supported by many forms of exercises as wells as cultural notes. Sketches enliven the text. The goal of the text is to advance not only listening and speaking but also reading and writing, so audios and CDs are an essential part of the course. The book has been well-received by reviewers. Primarily in traditional characters but simplified characters also noted. A version in simplified characters is also in the works.
We recommend this text as the best choice for intermediate level study.
