Book Description

1 Oct 2011 1907838104 978-1907838101 3
Chinese in Steps is a series of textbooks designed for English-speaking adults who learn Chinese either as part of their degree study at university, or simply as part of their professional or self-development programme for practical purposes. While aiming to deliver an effective result and an enriching Chinese language learning experience, it has also taken into consideration the needs of those who seek externally validated qualifications. Chinese in Steps differs from many other textbooks in its approach to language teaching, and in its conscious effort to make use of adult learners' own experiences in learning Chinese. Its approach is based upon how English-speaking adults learn Chinese and aims to deliver language instruction through a method that integrates a communicative teaching approach, contrastive analyses and cultural awareness. We are very happy to be able to present this brand new edition of Chinese in Steps with Sinolingua London. This is the first new edition of the series since its initial publication in 2005 with Cypress Book. We are also most delighted that with the dedication and support from our users, this series was a recent recipient of the Award for Outstanding International Chinese Language Teaching Materials at the Fifth Confucius Institute Conference in December 2010.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Chinese.. In... Steps... 21 Feb 2012
Just started a Chinese course and made the mistake of flicking all the way through this book when I first got it and instantly feeling a bit sick about what I'd signed myself up for!

I'm glad to say the reality is very different. The course, much helped by this book, is a good mix of speaking, listening, reading AND writing! The text in this book is very clear and understandable, with a good introduction to some Chinese cultural references too. The CD's that come with it are an essential addition which gives you a chance to practice practice practice away fromthe classroom!

While I've already scared myself (again - I'll never learn) by looking at the second volume of this book, this volume doesn't seem quite so scary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality material 21 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Chinese is the 4th foreign language I am learning, so I know what I expect from a good book. I have been learning chinese for 7 months but without learning characters. Chinese in steps is brilliant for learning characters with the correct stroke order, this is better in the new edition, and to consolidate the vocabulary from the lessons before.
I can't tell how it is to start learning with this book at absolute beginners level.
