Go! Chinese now comes with a second edition offering new and improved content! As a fully integrated Chinese language program, it is
specially designed for learners of Chinese as a foreign language.
Comprising eight levels, Go! Chinese helps students develop all four language skills across the three modes of communication (interpretive,
interpersonal, and presentational). Students will have opportunities to explore Chinese culture and compare different cultures, make
connections with other discipline areas, and extend their learning experiences to their homes and communities. Activities such as role
play, interviews, games, pair work, and language exchanges are incorporated to allow students to communicate in meaningful contexts.
Go! Chinese is divided into two series: Beginner (Levels 1-4) and Intermediate (Levels 5-8). The Beginner Series is designed for elementary
school students with little or no background in Chinese and aims to equip them with basic vocabulary and common expressions for
everyday interactions. The Intermediate Series is suitable for middle school students and places more emphasis on cultural comparison,
self-expression, and opinion exchange.
Each level consists of a Textbook and a Workbook. The Textbook offers 10 lessons focusing on topics relevant to the everyday life with
emphasis on listening and speaking. The Workbook offers 10 lessons and two review units featuring a wide variety of practices with emphasis
on reading and writing. The program’s companion site offers additional resources for teachers and students.
