Connections 2: A Cognitive Approach to Intermediate Chinese
Connections I & II is the second-year sequence to accompany the enormously popular introductory texts interactions I & II by Margaret Yan and Jennifer Lichia Liu. This innovative system makes learning Chinese and interactive, cognitive process rather than a matter of simple rote or drill. Connections is designed to offer intermediate learners of Chinese a complete set of learning tools to improve their language skills and enhance their understanding of Chinese culture and society. Lesson topics revolve around everyday themes and real-world communication among four central characters--a mainland Chinese, a Taiwanese, a Chinese American, and non-Chinese American--familiar to students using Interactions. Each 10-chapter volume is accompanied by a workbook. Chapters include sections on vocabulary, text, mini-dialogue, characters, grammar, and culture notes, accompanied by engaging graphics. Connections also includes stories and songs, and makes use of a wide variety of texts such as narrative, dialogue, journal entries, riddles, jokes, news headlines, and lyrics.
