Product description

Review

It is rare to find a Chinese language textbook that is linguistically accurate, culturally rich, and pedagogically sound.... The attention paid to the principles of character formation makes Chinese character learning an unexpected pleasure. The emphasis on culture and literacy addresses most directly the needs of heritage language learners. The ample opportunities for reading and writing and the varied and flexible exercises make teaching and learning a truly productive and creative experience. Agnes Weiyun He, SUNY-Stony Brook
