Within the framework of Mandarin Express series and Chinese Reading and Writing series, the learning process can be divided into four stages: Introduction, Foundation, Development and Acculturation. Each stage has its own objectives and requires different kinds of participation from students. Teacher's Manual specifies each unit's topics and learning objectives, and suggests a series of word games and class activities for teachers to help students meet these objectives effectively.

Mandarin Express Pre-Intermediate Level B is the second phase of the Development stage, where ten contemporary topics are covered. At this stage, students' input and participation are actively sought after. The objectives include improving language skills, presentation skills, sharing knowledge and boosting critical thinking. Moreover, peer support and correction are explicitly encouraged both inside and outside of classrooms.
