Since New Practical Chinese Reader was published in 2002, it has been well received by teachers and learners of Chinese around the world. For users’ convenience, in this new edition, we have revised those we found improper, but have not revised the framework, the texts and the main language points of the textbook. In contrast to its first edition, the explanations of the text are designed next to each text to facilitate students. Users can visit the publisher s website and download the traditional Chinese version of the texts for free. All the reading materials and illustrations in the accompanying workbook are updated.
New Practical Chinese Reader (2nd Edition) Textbook 3, with altogether 12 lessons, tells interesting stories about the life of several foreign students and their friendship with their Chinese friends and teachers. It also introduces the customs and culture integrating daily life.
A CD of MP3 file is attached to the book, with the texts, new words, key sentences and dialogue practice recorded in it.
