Beyond the Basics takes intermediate and advanced-level students of Chinese to new heights of interpersonal communication. The updated second edition textbook with free audio downloads takes a communicative approach to contemporary and thought-provoking conversation topics such as childhood, vocation, crime, poverty, romance, politics, art, and the meaning of life. An emphasis on the spoken language encourages serious dialogue among students, while task-based activities require genuine, active communication and create a meaning-centered atmosphere.

Each of 15 chapters comprises a model dialogue, discussion questions, an indexed list of new words, text pattern explanations, and supplementary vocabulary.

This second edition of Beyond the Basics was field tested at Middlebury College, and features:

Newly revised content and vocabulary to reflect the contemporary field of Chinese language learning.
A greater variety of exercises and activities.
A Suggested Teaching Methodology Index and Vocabulary Index.
Both simplified and traditional characters, with pinyin for new vocabulary.
A new design that makes it easier for students of both simplified and traditional characters to follow the text and exercises.
Free access to online audio downloads.

An excerpt from Lesson 13: Political Election
第十三课: 选举
老 陈:投票率太高不一定是好事,也可能是社会动乱的征兆。你想想看,如果一个国家的人民在重大的政治议题上有共识,无论哪个党执政,政策都不会有太大的改 变,人民投票的动机就不那么强了;反之,要是执政党跟在野党的目标完全不同,群众为了拥护和自己想法相同的人,就会积极参与选举,那么投票率自然会提高。 当投票率超过百分之八十,甚至到了百分之九十的时候,可能就离动乱不远了。‧‧‧‧‧‧
