Endorsements

China has experienced rapid changes in the past two decades. A New China, written from the perspective of a foreign student who has just arrived in China, has been designed to provide up-to-date material on the changing face of China. The text compares contemporary China with its pre-reform era and emphasizes improvements in Chinese society. As in previous textbooks, A New China aims to provide a solid foundation in grammar and pronunciation rather than teach vocabulary geared toward specific usage. As a new feature, the textbook includes vocabulary words on the same page as the lesson text, making comprehension of new reading passages easier for students. A New China is appropriate for intermediate-level students and includes both traditional and simplified characters.

Endorsement:

"The contents of A New China cover topics ranging from student's daily life to actual situations they may encounter in China, from economic and social situations to people's conceptual changes in contemporary China. The cultural elements and information of today's China are rich and abundant.... A very well-written and thoughtfully compiled intermediate-level Chinese language textbook."--Baozhang He, Director Chinese Language Program, EALC Harvard University

"The content of the book is designed specifically to help students get ready to go to China.... A New China emphasizes changes that have occurred in China over the last decade, making it more up to date."--James M. Hargett, State University of New York, Albany
