Mandarin Express

Pre-Intermediate Level B

Student's Book

About This Book

This book is a continuation of Mandarin Express Pre-Intermediate Level A, and continues to engage students with ten advanced topics, such as pollution, health, crimes and economy, which are more current and more controversial. Topics are selected for their quality to inspire great discussions in the class. Debates and presentations are necessary tools to develop students Chinese language abilities, and to cultivate their critical thinking and analysing skills.

The structure of the book includes ten chapters with each addressing one advanced topic, two reviews to strength students’ learnings, and a section of key vocabularies for quick references. Each chapter starts with a speaking and writing exercise related to the topic to be discussed, followed by Chinese texts introducing new words and structures. Concise and in-depth analyses are incorporated to improve the students' Chinese reading comprehension. Questions presented in the reviews simulate students to give more in-depth thinking about the world we live in, and to use Chinese to phrase their ideas adequately.
