About the book: CHINESE LINK: Zhongwen Tiandi Level 2 provides a practical, learner-centered, and enjoyable language and culture learning experience for intermediate level Chinese learners, as well as an efficient and comprehensive teaching resource for instructors. 

The intermediate level in the Chinese Link: program, this series systematically emphasises and integrates the “5Cs” principles of the National Standards for Foreign Language Education–Communication, Cultures, Comparisons, Connections, and Communities–throughout the program.  While learners of Chinese at the intermediate level need to continue to build their mastery of commonly used vocabulary and grammatical structures, they also need to begin to train for advanced level language usage: Chinese Link Level 2 supports these two needs. 

Chinese Link Level 2 continues to systematically build learners’ abilities in the four skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing so that they can reach the intermediate level of competence. The content and exercises in the intermediate level program build upon what has been studied in the introductory level program, gradually adding more sophisticated vocabulary and grammatical structures. Frequent consolidation and review exercises are included.  Chinese Link Level 2 also helps learners get ready for advanced Chinese study by introducing formal and written expressions and increasing students’ “media literacy.” This is accomplished by providing exposure to common Chinese idioms and the stories behind them, and by including texts written in the style of newspaper, magazines, and Internet news articles.

Chinese Link Level 2 / Part 1 is comprised of 10 lessons, presenting traditional and simplified character versions side-by-side, allowing students to focus on one or the other, or to see the variations between the characters.  Chinese Link Level 2 Parts 1 and 2 are designed to be completed in an academic year of college-level study.

Features & benefits
  • The 5Cs (National Standards) are addressed consistently throughout the content, exercises, and homework in the intermediate level program.
  • Clearly and systematically linked to the introductory level program. This helps Chinese learners recycle and review what they have learned, as well as continue to develop their skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing for daily communication.
  • Topics are selected to be interesting and practical from the students’ point of view. Topics in the intermediate level program are expanded to more abstract and more societal phenomena to help learners better understand current Chinese society and be able to discuss, compare, and analyze cultural differences. Learners will also be exposed to various communicative situations that require them to develop and use skills such as basic summary, description, discussion, debate, and report.
  • While equal emphasis is still given to both vocabulary and grammatical structures, students are guided to write longer and more cohesive essays in Chinese.
  • Students learn to build from words and phrases, to sentences and cohesive passages, and then to application in communicative tasks.
  • The grammar points and core vocabulary are presented naturally in the main texts. The main texts, in turn, provide model situations in which the grammar and vocabulary for each lesson are integrated into realistic communicative situations.
  • Care has been taken to indicate regional differences in Chinese societies in expressions, pronunciation, and culture notes, pronunciation, and culture notes.
