Chaoyue: Advancing in Chinese covers the five Cs—communication, cultures, comparisons, connections, and communities—and follows three communicative modes in lesson design: interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational. The authors arrange their lessons around four topics intrinsically interesting to students: the self, schooling, social customs, and the global village, fostering a full appreciation of Chinese culture. Each lesson contains warm-up activities, mini-dialogues, authentic readings, conversational relays, a cultural unit, examples of sentence patterns, and a vocabulary list. Two review lessons are geared specifically toward synthesizing and reinforcing the language and culture skills taught throughout the book, and footnote glossaries assist in reading comprehension. Written by experienced Chinese language instructors, Chaoyue helps students reach the preadvanced proficiency level within two semesters, or approximately 150 to 180 hours of course time. The preadvanced stage is comparable to a fourth-semester college Chinese course, or 250 hours of instruction. Unlike other language texts, Chaoyue is printed in both simplified and traditional Chinese characters, as well as the phonetic systems used in China ( pinyin) and Taiwan ( zhuyin fuhao). It also includes a CD-ROM with additional assignments and review as well as an online teacher manual. Lesson sections include: •Warm-up activities that articulate the lesson's theme and activate students' prior knowledge •Short readings in the form of letters, e-mails, reports, dialogues, stories, and interviews •Dialogue practice with key vocabulary and sentence patterns •Interactive activities such as surveys, debates, and small group discussions •Conversational relays that ask pairs to complete minidialogues •Authentic readings in the form of advertisements, Web sites, maps, and signs, with multiple-choice review questions •Common expressions that relate to the lesson theme

Intermediate Chinese is intended for students who have some knowledge of the language. Each of the twenty five units deal with a particualr grammar point and provide associated exercises. Features include: * clear, accessible format * many useful language examples * jargon-free grammar explanations * ample drills and exercises * full key to exercises All Mandarin Chinese entries are presented in both pinyin romanization and Chinese characters, and are accompanied, in most cases, by English translations to facilitate self-tuition in both written and spoken Chinese. Intermediate Chinese reviews the principal elements introduced in Basic Chinese and introduces more complicated structures. The two books form a compendium of all the main features of Chinese syntax.

An exciting new series of study guides that lets each student design a course of study pitched to his or her individual needs and learning style Each year, more than one million U.S. high school students take one or more advanced placement (AP) exams, and, according to official projections, that number will continue to rise in the years ahead. That is because AP exams confer important benefits on those who do well on them. High AP scores are indispensable to gaining admission to most elite colleges. They provide students with a competitive edge when competing for grants and scholarships. And they allow students to bypass required university survey courses, saving on skyrocketing tuition fees. Designed to coincide perfectly with the most current AP exams, Five Steps to a 5 on the Advanced Placement Examinations guides contain several advanced features that set them above all competitors. Each guide is structured around an ingenious Five-Step Plan. The first step is to develop a study plan, the second builds knowledge, the third and fourth hone test-taking skills and strategies, and the fifth fosters the confidence students need to ace the tests. This flexible study tool is also tailored to three types of students. For the more structured student there is a "Month-by-Month" approach that follows the school year and a "Calendar Countdown" approach that begins with the new year. For students who leave studying to the last minute "Basic Training" covers the basics in just four weeks. Other outstanding features include: Sample tests that closely simulate real exams Review material based on the contents of the most recent tests Icons highlighting important facts, vocabulary, and frequently-asked questions Boxed quotes offering advice from students who have aced the exams and from AP teachers and college professors Websites and links to valuable online test resources, along with author e-mail addresses for students with follow-up questions Authors who are either AP course instructors or exam developers
