Description

Studying in China is a one-of-a-kind experience, and this textbook and audio CD set helps students make the most of it. The topics and settings are drawn from the actual experiences of hundreds of students and professors who have lived and studied abroad in China. After working through these authentic materials and task-based activities, students will have a much easier time dealing with the challenges of daily life in a foreign country. Texts are based on real-life conversations, and notes clearly explain how to use new vocabulary, idioms, and grammar patterns. For advanced-beginner level students (second-year college Chinese), Crossing Paths may be followed by Shifting Tides: Culture in Contemporary China. Simplified characters, with explanations/examples in English and vocabulary examples in characters with pinyin.
