Just as children gain literacy in their native language by reading, learners of a foreign language must read large amounts of level-appropriate books and material to attain fluency in their target language. The Readings in Chinese Literature Series was specially created to help learners of Chinese achieve that goal, by collecting the most well-known works in the Chinese literary canon in a series of convenient supplementary readers.
Perfect for class instruction or pleasure reading outside of class, Tales and Traditions exposes students to a wealth of information essential for the development of cultural fluency in Chinese. This series of readings will be especially welcomed, as the AP Chinese Language and Culture exam requires knowledge of China's literary, cultural, and historical traditions.
Each of the four volumes in the Readings in Chinese Literature Series was written using language appropriate for learners at different levels: from advanced-beginning in Volume 1 through advanced in Volume 4.
This fourth and last volume, for advanced learners, contains abridged adaptations of well-known works in Chinese literature, both classical and modern.
- Simplified and traditional characters on facing pages
- Vocabulary lists for each story
- Questions for discussion and cultural
- comparison in both Chinese and English
- Especially suitable for students preparing for the AP Chinese Language and Culture exam
