Beginning and Intermediate Mandarin Chinese

Chinese: Communicating in the Culture

Chinese: Communicating in the Culture(ChineseC3) is a program designed to permit learners with no previous experience in Chinese  to communicate in cultural contexts.  It is suitable for high school and college age learners. As a learner-friendly program, it includes performance textbooks, audio programs, and an interactive multimedia program presented by numerous audio and video clips, illustrations, and vocabulary games and exercises. Students will learn to perform roles in conversations and to practice spoken expressions and cultural moves in realistic communication events. It consists of four volumes of performance textbooks (Units 0 to 5, 60 lessons) and a comprehensive set of interactive multimedia materials.
