Title: Routledge Course in Modern Mandarin Chinese Level 2 Traditional Textbook
Written By: Claudia Ross

Description:

Textbook Level 2 incorporates the innovative features of Level 1 including the
separation of vocabulary from characters, a "basic to complex" introduction
of grammatical structures, a comprehensive companion workbook with
extensive practice in all language skills and functions, and a Teachers’
Manual.

Level 2 adds a "Narrative" Component to support the learner as they move
from spoken Mandarin to formal written Chinese, and from the comprehension
and production of short sentences to paragraphs and essays. Level 2 of this
Course in Modern Mandarin bridges the gap that characterizes the transition
between basic level Chinese courses and more advanced work. The Narrative
Component includes:

-Model narratives that introduce formal written Chinese with explanations of
the features of each narrative.

-Focus on narrative function including description, comparison, explanation,
persuasion, and hypothesis.

-Reading and writing assignments that guide students to internalize model
structures, to read for information, and to compose original essays for
specific purposes.

The course is also fully supported by an interactive companion website
(http://cw.routledge.com/textbooks/9780415472500/ ) which contains a wealth
of additional resources for both teachers and students.

-Teachers will find lesson plans in both English and Mandarin, providing a
weekly schedule and overall syllabus for fall and spring, as well as activities
for each lesson and answer keys.

-Students will be able to access downloadable character practice worksheets
along with interactive pronunciation, vocabulary and character practice
exercises. All the audio material necessary for the course is also available
online and conveniently linked on screen to the relevant exercises for ease-
of-use.
