A sample lesson from this supplementary Chinese course is now available online, click here to try it.
The complete course consists of 22 lessons in simplified characters at elementary-intermediate level and is suitable for students who have already learned Chinese for at least 3 months. The course has been designed to supplement classroom teaching of Chinese, but can stand alone for use by students studying independently. It breaks new ground with its comprehensive use of multimedia materials, including video and audio files, interactive character writing exercises, interactive grammar drills, multiple choice vocabulary tests, and indexes for grammar and vocabulary.
A trial version of this CD has been tested out by students of Chinese in UK universities. A full production version of Chinese Multimedia (ISBN 0-9543229-0-8) is available in Oxford Blackwell Bookshops and Blackwell's Online Bookshop.
