· Additional mini-stories challenge students' abilities of cultural interpretation.

· Includes a total of twenty-seven stories familiar to every educated Chinese person that will prepare students for meaningful communication and understanding.

· Each lesson includes more than ten sections of exercises intertwined with culture, including vocabulary and idioms, historical information, linguistic points, translation exercises, and online research required for debate, composition, and storytelling.
