Elementary and Continuing Mandarin Chinese Textbook BLL231


Elementary Mandarin Chinese Textbook is a new beginner Mandarin Chinese course which enables you to quickly learn the basics of the language. The 24 lessons in this book are meant to be used in 3 hours per week of class instruction over one academic year. Students will need another 2–3 hours of outside practice and review for every hour of class time, using the materials in the accompanying Elementary Mandarin Chinese Workbook.

Continuing Mandarin Chinese Textbook is a new intermediate-level course in Mandarin which enables you to quickly learn the next level of the language—following the first book in the series, Elementary Mandarin Chinese Textbook.
These books can also be used by self-study learners due to the extensive explanations and free supplementary materials available — including online audio and video recordings and flash cards.
The entire course can be completed in 25 to 35 weeks and teaches you the basic skills of speaking, reading and writing Mandarin Chinese at a conversational level. Each lesson starts with a dialogue and includes a list of new and supplementary Chinese vocabulary along with questions and grammar notes about the dialogue, a reading section and extensive exercises (that are in the Workbook).

Elementary and Continuing Mandarin Chinese Textbook offers the following significant advantages over other similar textbooks:

  • Common, everyday Chinese dialogues are used—complete with vocabulary lists and questions and storylines based on actual everyday experiences in China
  • Chinese grammar is explained in simple, non-technical terms with useful notes and tips given
  • Reading exercises are provided for all new words and phrases in each lesson
  • Free online audio recordings by native speakers from different regions of China help you not only acquire correct pronunciation, but also to understand Chinese speakers who have different accents
  • Illustrations and supplementary video clips add authenticity to the materials in the book
  • A Chinese-English dictionary, downloadable flash cards and supplementary exercises are all provided
  • Free online audio & video recordings and printable PDFs
