Discovering Chinese series is for the beginning young adult with no prior exposure to Chinese.
Discovering Chinese is designed for middle to high school students at the beginner level. The spiral-up approach allows students to review past lessons as they advance through the volumes in the series! (Lessons in Discovering Chinese parallel the lesson progress in My First Chinese Reader, so students who began their Chinese learning with the My First Chinese Reader series can easily switch to Discovering Chinese once they enter middle school. ) Discovering Chinese is currently used in 200+ schools.
For daily lessons/sessions (1-hour per session): Educators are recommended to teach 1 lesson per school week. Each volume contains 12 lessons. We recommend middle school students to complete each volume in 1 academic year (approximately 32 weeks) with teachers supplementing additional cultural and extracurricular learning, such as Chinese Festivals, Chinese Yo-Yo, Chinese Hockey Sack, etc. For high school students, we recommend students to complete each volume in 1 academic semester with additional cultural activities and learning.
For fewer than 2 weekly sessions: In learning environments in which students have 2 or less sessions per week, teachers are recommended to complete 1 lesson in 2-3 weeks with additional cultural activities and learning. This series is recommended for 1 to 2+ academic years depending on learning objectives and goals.
