Mandarin Express

Pre-Intermediate Level A

Work Book

About This Book

This book is written within the framework of Mandarin Express Pre-Intermediate Level A Student's Book. There are ten exercises for each lesson and ten more for each review. Targeted drills are in place for the newly acquired words and structures. There are also longer reading exercises designed to challenge students and move them forward.

In the stage of a rapid expanding of Chinese characters, students will inevitably encounter unknown characters in the exercises, especially in the readings, even though they have probably come across the words in pinyin before. It is therefore acceptable for students to use APP or other tools to look for meanings of the unknown characters.

Targeted words, phrases and patterns also appear in listening exercises of various forms. The recordings are all in natural speed of native Mandarin speakers. Students must learn to adapt to this speed and practice to follow and understand Mandarin speakers as they speak.
