Go Far with Chinese is a comprehensive, proficiency-based Chinese language program for middle school and high school students. The series provides age-appropriate content to meet the specific needs and interests of teenage language learners, while building articulation to college-level programs, including our internationally acclaimed Integrated Chinese series. 

Students follow Martin and Isabella Lopez, two American teenagers whose mother receives a work assignment in Beijing. Each chapter brings a new episode in the lives of the Lopezes, allowing students to experience the excitement and challenges of adapting to life in China. 

Thoughtful vocabulary control and contextual grammar instruction help students achieve intermediate-low level proficiency in Chinese. Engaging cultural features jam-packed with up-to-date information about the lives of young Chinese people also help students connect to and apply the content. The series' robust teacher resources, developed in collaboration with a team of experienced educators, make it easy to create an effective, enjoyable, and flexible learning experience.
