When students are not making progress in their Chinese study, we usually find causes elsewhere.
Too many books teach only individual characters which students do not know how to use. Too many books teach overwhelmingly large quantity of characters in each chapter. Too many books waste space on irrelevant pictures or radicals. Our solution to these problems is Chinese Reading and Writing series.
Too many books replace in-depth Chinese historical and cultural representations with simplified versions of Chinese festivals. Rarely any books include Classical Chinese as part of the overall curriculum. Moreover, many textbooks do not provide sufficient listening exercises, especially for beginner students who need the listening trainings the most. Our solution to these problems is Mandarin Express series.
Nowadays, students are distracted more than ever by all kinds of notifications on their smartphones. Our solution to this new problem is Learning Chinese Well Organised, which is a journal and a tool to help students stay focused and find time and space for their Chinese study.
The complete series includes six books, introducing 320 Chinese characters and combinations formed by these 320 characters. Students get sufficient Chinese texts, such as conversations and narratives, as exercises to build concrete skills in reading and writing Chinese.
This series is supported by online video lessons and Chinese Learning Pen. Supplementary worksheets (PDF) are also available for additional practices.
This is a communication based series of Chinese textbooks, providing four levels of comprehensive instruction ranging from daily activities to world issues. It focuses on practical task-based learning with a wide variety of text presentations. Targeted words and structures are re-enforced through interactive exercises and adequate listening drills.
Chinese Learning Pen
Chinese Learning Pen is a digital tool which brings out high quality audio from the book pages, accelerating the learning process in many key areas. It is an excellent addition to the Chinese Reading and Writing series, allowing students to listen to any part of the texts at will and at ease, as if books are coming alive under the touch of a Pen.
Online Video Lessons
A series of animated video lessons are produced based on the Chinese Reading and Writing series, making it easier to learn Chinese remotely. These lessons can be accessed by scanning the QR codes imbedded on the pages or be watched directly at our website. Lessons explain characters, words and expressions, how to grasp the exact meaning of a character in a context, important grammar points, and more.
Learning Chinese Well Organised
Technologies are important to learn Chinese, but no technology can substitute the act of people sitting down and doing some writing exercises. Learning Chinese Well Organised, the latest addition to our portfolio, is a journal and tool to help students find some tech-free moments for their Chinese study in the midst of all kinds of distractions in this digitised world.
Chinese Reading and Writing series and the first three levels of Mandarin Express series come with complementary Teacher’s Manual (Trial Version) for teachers, helping teacher bring in adequate exercises, diverse roles and structures to the class, and create a good learning environment for students both inside and outside of classroom.
