For the second course in the beginning Chinese sequence. For learning Mandarin Chinese.  

Recognizing that the world is becoming increasingly interlinked and globalized, the goal of the Chinese Link: project is  to integrate the "5Cs" principles of the National Standards for Foreign Language Education - Communication, Cultures, Comparisons, Connections and Communities - throughout the program. 

By incorporating the "5Cs," Chinese Link, 2e provides a much needed new approach for the teaching and learning of Chinese language in the 21st century. The program aims to help beginners develop their communicative competence in the four basic skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing, while gaining competence in Chinese culture, exercising their ability to compare aspects of different cultures, making connections to their daily life and building links among communities.  Chinese Link, 2e is available in two volumes (Level 1 / Part 1 and Level 1 / Part 2) in both traditional and simplified character editions.
