The Enhanced Edition (2020) of Chinese Reading and Writing 4 is a continuation of Chinese Reading and Writing 3. This book introduces 50 new Chinese characters, which are selected based on their places in Chinese character occurring frequency, and their places in Mandarin Express series.
An expanded list of 222 vocabularies is created with these new characters, enabling students to read and write longer Chinese texts. At this level, the practice of reading and writing can also make a positive impact on students’ listening and speaking abilities.
On top of that, 4 grammar points are introduced. And two old Chinese characters are reintroduced for their second pronunciations and meanings. The exercise sections includes 217 sentences, 14 conversations, and 6 narratives.
