Where Does the Wind Blow? and Other Essays: Readings in Chinese Culture Series Volume 4
Author: Weijia Huang & Qun Ao
ISBN: 9780887278815
Format: Paperback
Script: Simplified

Where Does the Wind Blow? invites students to appreciate the rich textures of Chinese culture while sharpening their reading skills. The fourth in the five-volume Cheng & Tsui Readings in Chinese Culture series, this collection of ten original essays is ideal for intermediate students in the first semester of third-year Chinese, or at the "Advanced Low" level, as designated by ACTFL proficiency guidelines.

Used as a supplement to any intermediate Mandarin Chinese textbook, or as reading material for independent learners, Where Does The Wind Blow? will refine students' knowledge of Chinese vocabulary and grammar while strengthening their understanding of Chinese arts, culture, and society.

Given the cultural focus of the AP and other standardized Chinese exams, teachers will welcome this as a resource that seamlessly combines language learning with an introduction to both classical and contemporary Chinese culture.


  • Each essay of approximately 750 characters is presented in both simplified and traditional characters on facing pages.
  • Essays cover a range of cultural topics, from how the Chinese describe different types of wind to the principles of Feng Shui to the origins of Chinese New Year money.
  • A vocabulary list, related words and expressions, and an optional exercise section accompany each lesson.
  • For students who prefer to read pinyin along with Chinese characters, an appendix of each essay in pinyin is included.
  • Answer keys at the back of the book help learners gauge their own progress.
  • This series of supplemental readers consists of five volumes, corresponding to five different levels of Chinese proficiency from intermediate through advanced.
