• Developing Chinese Fluency - Textbook


Developing Chinese Fluency is a rigorous communication skill training program that seeks to systematically expand the intermediate learners’ vocabulary, and help them achieve advanced level proficiency in the oral and written use of the language -- particularly in the areas of description, comparison and introduction -- in a relatively short period of time. 

This text is intended for intermediate to low-advanced college-level students. It is also appropriate for heritage learners and accelerated high school programs. Its modular design allows the text to be used as a standalone one-year program, or use of individual module content as a supplement to an existing course.
