Developing Chinese Fluency is a rigorous communication skill training program that seeks to systematically expand the intermediate learners’ vocabulary, and help them achieve advanced level proficiency in the oral and written use of the language -- particularly in the areas of description, comparison and introduction -- in a relatively short period of time.


This text is intended for intermediate to low-advanced college-level students. It is also appropriate for heritage learners and accelerated high school programs. Its modular design allows the text to be used as a standalone one-year program, or use of individual module content as a supplement to an existing course.


Developing Chinese Fluency Workbook serves as a handy reference to help students review and retain key points of each lesson. It is designed to be used together with the Online Workbook. The Online Workbook enhances the learning experience by combining multimedia materials with interactivity and ease of access of information. The printed Workbook grants access to the Online Workbook through an access key that is printed inside the book.


The Workbook offers two main categories of exercises: Aural-Oral Drills allow students to have aural/oral repetitive practice of new vocabulary items, native speech patterns and question-and-answer prompts. Fluency Enhancement offers a variety of activities such as chunking, typing, listening/reading, fluency drilling and writing to reinforce vocabulary, and improve speed, accuracy and fluency.
