Easy Steps to Chinese adopts a new approach to teaching Chinese as a foreign language. It is designed for both primary and secondary school students who are taking Chinese exams, such as GCSE/IGCSE/AS (U.K.), SAT II/AP (U.S.A.), IB Chinese Language B, or for those students who are starting to learn Chinese on their own.
Easy Steps to Chinese has three stages: Stage 1 - Books 1 and 2; Stage 2 - Books 3, 4, 5 and 6; and Stage 3 - Books 7 and 8. After completing this series, the students will acquire a vocabulary of approximately 1,600 Chinese characters, and develop confidence in using Chinese to communicate either orally or in written forms.
