Binding: Paperback, 408 pages
CHINESE LINK: Zhongwen Tiandi Level 2 provides a practical, learner-centered, and enjoyable language and culture learning experience for intermediate level Chinese learners, as well as an efficient and comprehensive teaching resource for instructors. The intermediate level in the Chinese Link: program, this series systematically emphasizes and integrates the “5Cs” principles of the National Standards for Foreign Language Education—Communication, Cultures, Comparisons, Connections, and Communities—throughout the program. While learners of Chinese at the intermediate level need to continue to build their mastery of commonly used vocabulary and grammatical structures, they also need to begin to train for advanced level language usage: Chinese Link Level 2 supports these two needs. Chinese Link Level 2 continues to systematically build learners’ abilities in the four skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing so that they can reach the intermediate level of competence. The content and exercises in the intermediate level program build upon what has been studied in the introductory level program, gradually adding more sophisticated vocabulary and grammatical structures. Frequent consolidation and review exercises are included. Chinese Link Level 2 also helps learners get ready for advanced Chinese study by introducing formal and written expressions and increasing students’ “media literacy.” This is accomplished by providing exposure to common Chinese idioms and the stories behind them, and by including texts written in the style of newspaper, magazines, and Internet news articles. Chinese Link Level 2 / Part 1 is comprised of 10 lessons, presenting traditional and simplified character versions side-by-side, allowing students to focus on one or the other, or to see the variations between the characters. Chinese Link Level 2 Parts 1 and 2 are designed to be completed in an academic year of college-level study.
