Mandarin Express

Basic Level A

Student's Book

About This Book

This book starts the second level of Mandarin Express series. It is designed for the students with some experience in Mandarin. If students have completed Chinese Reading and Writing 2, their increased knowledge on Chinese characters and Chinese texts will help them have a better grasp of this book's content. Especially, starting from Lesson six of this book, one short reading is incorporated into each lesson to enhance the students' overall comprehension. Knowing 120 Chinese characters and their usage is a terrific tool in understanding these short readings.

Basic Level A focuses on 10 important topics and provides the students with useful words and phrases to further their ability to carry on meaningful conversations, such as music and neighbourhoods. Each topic is dealt thoroughly in each lesson. There are one review for every five lessons, so that students can go over the previous lessons and link them together coherently.

Materials dealing with day-to-day business are at centre of the first two lessons, providing practical language which can be easily applied in a Mandarin speaking environment.
