The Modern Chinese series is designed for college students and adult learners. This unique program adopts a story-based approach that follows the lives of six college students and the daily events they encounter. The scenarios are designed to provide students with the vocabulary and context to engage in real life conversations.
The multi-cultural background of the characters reflects today's globalized world. The Modern Chinese program includes textbooks, workbooks (online or print), and teacher's guide.
