New Century Chinese is, as the title indicates, for students of Mandarin Chinese in the new century. It is a complete beginner's college-level Chinese program. To accommodate the needs of the students from different linguistic backgrounds, both the simplified and traditional versions of the Chinese characters have been employed side by side. Well-chosen topics for varied oral activities, most basic structures of modern Chinese, carefully selected reading materials and approximately 1200 useful words will provide the students with ample opportunities for practicing Chinese in communicative and interactive contexts.
