Description

Masterworks Chinese Companion meets the needs of students from Chinese-speaking families or advanced non-native speakers who have mastered basic oral communication in Chinese but seek further development of their reading and writing skills. Anderson presents students with twelve short works that are emblematic of superlative writing styles, primarily from the Chinese canon of modern literature. By selecting short stories that reflect human emotions and relationships, the author of Masterworks has provided learners with the vocabulary and patterns they need to express their thoughts and feelings in writing. Lessons are given in both traditional and simplified characters. Audio recordings of the lessons are available as free online downloads.
