Level 2 LIVING IN CHINA
1. Student's Book
The textbook is divided into 10 units and each unit is subdivided into 3 lessons. Approximately 450 Chinese words are taught by providing images and by breaking each character/word into its parts to help students remember it more easily. In the level two text, about 50 sentence patterns with the most common structural functions are presented in daily-life situations. One of the most outstanding features of this book is the storyline: Mark (the American boy who traveled to China in the level one text) now returns to China as an exchange student to live and to attend school in Guangzhou. Various cultural topics are introduced to enrich students' knowledge about China. Exercises on the four skills are well designed in a systematic scheme and integrated into each lesson.
Each Student's Book comes with an audio CD program. It enables the students to hear native speakers as they learn and practice words, sentences and paragraphs or dialogues. We also provide audio at our website for students and teachers to download for homework.
The workbook provides additional practice for the students to develop their language skills. It aligns with the units of the student book.
3. Teacher's Manual
The Teacher's Manual provides the teachers with an outline of our program, a concise explanation on how to use our materials, a survey of our teaching content, suggestions for class activities and cultural notes. The accompanying CD includes the assessment program with quizzes, tests, mid-term and final exams, answer keys and audio scripts.
