New Concept Chinese is developed by the joint efforts of educators from China and America. This “localized textbook for oversea students” is the distillation of 15 years’ experience of Chinese teaching abroad. The book suits a wide range of students, from 4-year-old kids to high school students. It touches upon Chinese literature, geology, history, philosophy, and many areas relating to the rich Chinese culture. Finishing this course, the students would have a good mastery of 2,500 Chinese characters and be able to pass AP test. This whole set of textbooks contains 24 volumes, intended for 10 years of learning. Currently BLCUP is planning to publish the first 16 volumes, each including with a textbook, two exercise books, a set of character cards and a CD. The textbooks are full-color printed, beautifully decorated and rich in contents.
