How Does It Work

This Chinese writing course is the fifth in the series, teaching non-Chinese speakers how to read and write Chinese texts. This series is also suitable for heritage learners and for those who have learned many individual Chinese characters but have not gone through any serious trainings on how to use them coherently. 

With 50 new Chinese characters taught in the book, and combined with the previous 220 characters taught, this course brings an exponential growth of words and combinations of a total of 270 characters, which enable students to read and to enjoy long and engaging stories. 

The length of the Chinese texts in this course is unprecedented and dazzling. At the same time, students find that these texts are all easy, interesting and fun reads. 

Additional worksheets are provided for more reading and writing exercises, targeting the usage of words, sentence constructions, and understanding of the texts.

Chinese Learning Pen is an audio tool which allow students to play any part of the texts in the book. It is instrumental in accelerating their character recognition process and improving their pronunciations. 

On completing this course, students’ Chinese reading and writing abilities will be brought to a new and enjoyable level.
