Reading Chinese This Way

“Reading Chinese This Way” is a 6-part progressive series published by Higher Education Press. Targeted at Chinese learners with intermediate reading skills, each volume contains 10-15 topics which build student’s skills in areas such as newspaper reading and engaging with Chinese websites, as well as providing a range of relevant information related to Chinese culture and history. This practical approach is designed with short, practical topics with diagrams and illustrations, reading texts, vocabulary, and language comprehension and grammar exercises.
Common Knowledge About Series

Published by Higher Education Press, this series is split into three distinct volumes: "Chinese Geography", "Chinese Culture", and "Chinese History". Accompanied with photos and Chinese-English text, the clear focus of each of the volumes allows the reader not only to learn factual information about China, but also to pick up a range of specialised vocabulary related to the topic. It would serve as an excellent supplementary reader for Chinese learners of an intermediate-advanced level.
