Mandarin Express

Intermediate Level A

Student's Book

About This Book

This book starts a new level, and a new stage, of learning Mandarin, where students are expected to contribute greatly to their own learning. At this level, learning Mandarin is more than leaning the meaning of a word or a new sentence structure. Speaking and writing Mandarin is definitely more than daily social activities.

There are four major themes in this book, Chinese history, business, science & technology, and life. Each theme is developed through four long readings, covering historical events, world issues, and exchanges of abstract ideas. This is an effective outline for students to engage in active learning and to do self motivated research in related or similar subjects. Realistic discussions in the class actively require the students' full involvement.

Not only will this book bring outstanding achievement to students' Mandarin skills, but also broaden students' mind through great conversations and exchanges of views.

Teachers must give students more room to explore, especially when learning Mandarin is more than learning a language.
