Go! Chinese now comes with a second edition offering new and improved content! As a multi-level, fully integrated Chinese language program, it is specially designed for students in elementary schools with little or no Chinese background. Students will develop all four language skills across the three modes of communication (interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational) while gaining an appreciation of Chinese culture. They will also have opportunities to compare different cultures, make connections with other discipline areas, and extend their learning experiences to their homes and communities. Go! Chinese Textbook 1 offers 10 beautifully illustrated lessons focusing on topics relevant to the everyday life. Each lesson introduces basic vocabulary and simple sentence structures with emphasis on listening and speaking. Activities such as role play, interviews, games, pair work, and language exchanges are incorporated to allow students to communicate in meaningful contexts. Go! Chinese Workbook 1 offers 10 lessons and two review units featuring a wide variety of practices with emphasis on reading and writing.
