Cultural immersion--learning all the facets of what "Chinese" means--is an integral part of language learning for serious students of Chinese. Shifting Tides presents intermediate students with a winning combination: the language skills they need, presented within the cultural context that will enable them to establish a solid foundation for interaction and communication with Chinese people. The topics and settings that are included here are drawn from the actual experiences of hundreds of students who studied abroad in China, and from professors who taught and lived with students in China. After working through Shifting Tides' authentic materials and task-based activities and exercises, students will better understand some of the important ideas and perspectives underlying Chinese society.
