A New China - An Intermediate Reader of Modern Chinese (Revised Edition)

Chih-P'ing Chou, Joanne Chiang, Jianna Eager , Princeton University Press , 2011
Originally published in 1999, A New China has become a standard textbook for intermediate Chinese language learning. This completely revised edition reflects China's dramatic developments in the last decade and consolidates the previous two-volume set into one volume for easy student use. Written from the perspective of a foreign student who has just arrived in China, the textbook provides the most up-to-date lessons and learning materials about the changing face of China. The first half of the book follows the life of an exchange student experiencing Beijing for the first time. Chinese language students are guided step-by-step through the stages of arriving at the airport, going through customs, and adjusting to Chinese university dormitories. The revised edition includes new lessons on daily life, such as doing laundry and getting a haircut, as well as visiting the zoo, night markets, and the Great Wall. Later lessons discuss recent social and political issues in China, including divorce, Beijing traffic, and the college entrance examination. A New China provides detailed grammar explanations, extensive vocabulary lists, and homework exercises.

Boya Chinese 1

Xiaoqi L , Peking University Press , 2010
Volume 1 of the elementary level of the Boya Chinese series, which comes with 9 books distributed as follows: - Elementary (two volumes) - Pre-intermediate (two volumes) - Intermediate (two volumes) - Advanced (three volumes) These textbooks have been developed by experienced teachers of the University of Pekin, the most renowned university in China. The current volume focuses on beginner-level students, which, together with the second volume on elementary level, covers aproximately 1000 words. Once this level is finished, the student will be ready to pass the HSK level 3 exam. It´s especially recommended for intensive courses, since the student will be able to advance very quickly with it; teaching characters has a secondary role in this book. Contrary to other textbooks, the dialogues in each lesson written in Chinese characters are separated from their Pinyin (phonetic transcriptions) versions, a very positive feature which avoids getting too used to the latter. An MP3 format audio CD will read all the texts in Chinese, as well as the new words in each lesson. The book covers much ground, and includes a great deal of exercises for each lesson. All grammar explanations, introductions to new words and instructions to the exercises come in English. Furthermore, at the end of the book you can even find translations of the texts in English as well.
