About this book
This series of textbooks is adapted from a CCTV documentary program of the same name, including two volumes and altogether 16 lessons.
It tells the stories about more than 20 Chinese people from all walks of life, ranging from taxi driver, retiree and fitness coach to fashion designer, collector and archaeologist, etc. The accompanying DVD videos present the authentic life, work and spirit of modern Chinese people in an audio-visual and lively way. Through an innovative combination of audiovisual and reading materials, the series turns “reading” texts into “watching” texts and integrates Chinese language learning into the learning of China’s conditions and culture, therefore can largely enhance the instructive effect and deepen the students’ understanding of China.
About the author
This audiovisual reading course book, first of a two volumes set, with a perfect colourful layout, is of great interest. Each of the eight lessons contains a text, which can be watched or listened to through the DVD and CD provided (with vocabulary in margin), many bilingual cultural notes, and one bilingual vocabulary & grammar section. Lessons deal with both modern and traditional Chinese society.
