The Chinese Odyssey, Volume 6 textbook solidifies students’ competence in modern Chinese communication. In year three of Chinese Odyssey, students will carry on more sophisticated discussions in Chinese and learn to express themselves in writing. The book’s five lessons contain dialogues and texts, clear and detailed explanations of grammar rules and language usage, coordinated grammar and communication exercises, and cultural material. Lesson topics in Volumes 5 & 6 range from traditional Chinese marriage customs, to the Chinese political system and its administrative structure, to the state of environmental protection and pollution in China. This book is intended to cover the second semester of third-year Chinese for students in high school or college. This book includes practice exercises integrated throughout each section of the textbook, eliminating the need for a separate workbook. At the end of each lesson, Comprehensive Exercises integrate listening, speaking, reading, writing, and grammar practice. These exercises are the same as the exercises in the multimedia CD-ROM. Exercises and quizzes in all volumes are modeled after the HSK, China’s standardized test of Chinese for foreign learners, making Chinese Odyssey the ideal series for anyone who plans to study or work in China. This book presents traditional and simplified characters on facing pages, to encourage fluency in students who wish to study and compare the two forms.
