Chinese Without Tears [intermediate]

Intermediate Level

Chinese Without Tears [intermediate]

Chinese without Tears, intermediate level follows the story of an overseas student, Emily, through the course of her life in China. Her story is told through a series of 17 dialogues that become progressively sophisticated and challenging from one lesson to the next. The dialogues show scenarios anyone is likely to encounter when coming to China for the first time, whether to study, to work, or to visit.

Each dialogue is accompanied by detailed instructional notes on grammar and usage. Additional informational notes also make each lesson a beginner’s guide to a single topic, like banking, shopping, dining, commuting and making reservations. Supplementary vocabulary and facts help learners go beyond the dialogues to manage daily situations in greater depth and talk about common topics with greater flexibility.

Chinese without Tears, intermediate level is the second volume of the Chinese without Tears series. It is recommended for intermediate beginners; either those who have studied Chinese without Tears for Beginners or with one semester’s study in Mandarin Chinese program or those with equivalent experience (in part-time courses or through self-study).
