"I like the scope and sequence, a good balance between aspects of personal, social life and those of important Chinese culture and traditions...I like the general structure of "Warm-up", "Pre-reading", "Main text (with narratives and dialogs)", Practice (vocabulary, grammar, communication)", and "Listen & Speak". It flows well and should be easy for teachers to use because the arrangement itself presents a good pedagogical sequencing."--Dr. Chao-mei Shen, Rice University, Texas
"The very first groundbreaking project in the development of instructional materials in Chinese! The program well reflects ACTFL's five National Standards and corresponds to cutting-edge pedagogy. I'm truly heartened by such a wise move towards the development of instructional materials. I look forward to its great success!"--Dr. Miao-fen TsengUniversity of Virginia, VA
"With one unit that I reviewed, I already sense the direction of the textbook meeting our needs in preparing our AP Chinese students for their AP Exam. Hopefully, the whole book will follow the same spirit and I would like to be the first one to recommend this series to our school district and teachers in other districts for adoption."--Baocai Paul Jia, Cupertino High School, CA
"[The book design and layout] are very attractive in comparison with the books I have used. The combination of the clear illustrations and interesting page layouts attract student's attention...The unit [I reviewed] provides students with interesting cultural information. My students love it!"--Xing King,The Bishop's School, CA
"I really like this part [supplementary culture notes in the Instructor's Resource Manual]. Not every Chinese teacher knows all the culture aspects. For a teacher, who's been abroad for a long time, the notes on the recent culture not only provide information but also some new vocabulary words (such as proper nouns)."--Yangyang Daniell,The Lawrence School, NJ
