"This is a very good approach in terms of presenting vivid dialogues and tasks to engage students who may never be given such chances by traditional textbooks. The task-based approach will put language learning back into its lively context where conversations happen as an exchange of minds, not sounds. It definitely will capture students' interest and encourage them to imitate what they watch."
"This is a pioneering textbook. . . . It provides useful teaching materials and advanced approaches."
"Comparatively authentic language, rich cultural information, real-world characters, and realistic settings in China serve to capture students' attention, stimulate them in learning Chinese, and encourage them to study abroad."
"This proposal supports a balanced pedagogical focus that employs both performance-based and tasked-based approaches, using multimedia as the main platform to deliver content that involves an ongoing story line."
"This is one of the most thorough and tightly knit course materials I've come across."
