    With topics ranging from festivals to travel and technology, each unit is based around one authentic Mandarin Chinese text and audio recording. This mix of content helps students engage with the subject and develop their ability to handle real language materials. Audio recordings (available online) help students practise the new listening aspect of the course, while ‘Culture boxes’ provide interesting insights into Chinese culture. Students will work collaboratively with others – sometimes in pairs and other times in groups – to develop language skills through communication. Answers to the coursebook questions are in the digital teacher’s resource.

  • Contents

    • 'Culture boxes' provide interesting insights into Chinese cultures and provide talking points for students to practise language in the classroom.
