Go! Chinese together with IQChinese Go (multimedia CD-ROM) form an integrated Chinese language program that offers an easy, enjoyable and effective learning experience for learners of Chinese as a foreign language. The themes and lesson plans of this program are designed with reference to ACTFL’s 5Cs and the Curriculum Guides for Modern Languages developed by the Toronto District Board of Education.

 

This 8-level program is divided into two series: Beginner and Intermediate. The Beginner Series (Go100 – Go400) equips students with vocabulary and common expressions for everyday interactions in Chinese, while the Intermediate Series (Go500 – Go800) places more emphasis on cultural comparison, self-expression and opinion exchange. Each level includes a textbook, a workbook, and an optional companion multimedia CD-ROM (sold separately).

 

The Beginner Series of this program comprises four levels (Go100 – Go400) and each level can be completed in about 60 hours (40hours textbook + 20 hours CD-ROM). The Intermediate Series of this program comprises four levels (Go500 – Go800) and each level can be completed in about 80 hours (60 hours textbook + 20 hours CD-ROM).

 

A comprehensive Instructor Resource Pack (one for each level of Go100 – Go400) offers lesson plans, flashcards, and an audio CD. In addition, complimentary instructors’ resources are available online. The optional companion multimedia CD-ROMs give learners access to audio, visual and textual information about the language all at once. Chinese typing is systematically integrated into the program to facilitate the acquisition and retention of new vocabulary and to equip students with a skill that is becoming increasingly important in the internet era wherein professional and personal correspondence are largely done electronically.


  • Develops students’ four skills with emphasis on listening and speaking
  • Incorporates topics relevant to students’ daily lives
  • Integrates a variety of communicative activities such as role play, interview, pair work and games to allow students to practice using the language in meaningful contexts

 

This title is also available in Simplified Chinese.
