    About this book

Watching the Clouds Go By invites students to investigate the rich textures of traditional and contemporary Chinese culture while sharpening their reading skills. The fifth in the five-volume Readings in Chinese Culture series, this collection of ten original essays is ideal for advanced students in their second semester of third-year Chinese, or at the “Advanced Mid” level, as designated by ACTFL proficiency guidelines.
A suitable supplement for any advanced Mandarin Chinese textbook, or as reading material for independent learners, Watching the Clouds Go By reinforces students’ grasp of Chinese vocabulary and grammar while also strengthening their understanding of Chinese culture. This cultural focus makes the Readings in Chinese Culture series an ideal tool in preparing for the AP* and other standardized exams. Each 500-700 character essay is printed in simplified and traditional characters on facing pages. A vocabulary list, related words and expressions, and an optional exercise section accompany each lesson. Pinyin versions of each essay can be found in the appendix.
For students who prefer to read pinyin along with Chinese characters, an appendix including each essay with pinyin is included.
