Following the main principles and guidelines of the successful Chinese Link: Zhongwen Tiandi series, this intermediate level program systematically emphasizes and integrates the “5Cs” principles of the National Standards for Foreign Language Education — Communication, Cultures, Comparisons, Connections, and Communities — within every lesson. As with elementary level (Level 1) materials, this intermediate level (Level 2) program continues to provide a practical, learner-centered, and enjoyable language and culture learning experience for students studying Chinese, as well as an efficient and comprehensive teaching resource for instructors.

You will notice the following in Level 2 of the Chinese Link series:

  • The texts and examples are provided in both traditional and simplified characters in order to accommodate different users’ needs and preferences.
  • The Pinyin has been removed from below the characters in the core lesson texts in order to help the learners become accustomed to reading Chinese characters without phonetic transliteration.
  • Each lesson introduces a Chinese Idiom Story that is carefully chosen and written to consolidate the core grammar points of that lesson. Its purpose is to introduce students to the rich Chinese cultural and literary tradition while reviewing what they have learned in another interesting way.
  • Media Literacy is promoted in Part 2 through the various channels such as idiom stories and articles from newspapers, magazines, and the World Wide Web.
