Chinese in Motion: An Advanced Immersion Course

By Yi Lin

Chinese in Motion is designed to get students using the language in real-life situations.  Serving as both a language textbook and a reference guide for contemporary China, this book encourages students to move their language beyond the classroom.

Targeted field work activities form the backbone of this performance-based curriculum. With lesson texts and dialogues introducing unique and relevant aspects of contemporary Chinese culture and society, Chinese in Motion prepares students to live in the Chinese-speaking world by integrating their classroom-based learning with their experiences interacting with native Chinese speakers. With a focus on promoting task-based language competency, students will be able to take full advantage of their immersion environment.
