"This workbook to accompany Level 1 of Startup Business Chinese contains exercises for improving students’ listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in business-related situations. Units 1-6 begin with listening practice, and present a range of exercises testing students’ mastery of the vocabulary, phrases, and situations introduced in the textbook. Units 7-12 continue with exercises that boost students’ conversation and translation skills, and reinforce proper use of the vocabulary and sentence patterns in the textbook. A separate “Listening Comprehension” section at the back of the workbook presents at least two additional spoken dialogues related to the topics in the textbook units 2-12, followed by questions to test students’ understanding of the conversations. This workbook includes an audio CD containing over 110 minutes of recordings in Windows Media Player (WMA) format to accompany the listening exercises in Units 1-6 and the conversations in the “Listening Conversations” section. All the recordings are spoken by native Chinese speakers in standard Mandarin Chinese. Exercises are in simplified Chinese characters with pinyin romanization and English throughout, so students can choose to complete the exercises using either Chinese characters or pinyin. "
