Step Up with Chinese《成长》is a pioneering, standards-based introductory Chinese textbook series designed by North American educators in collaboration with Chinese language specialists at the Beijing Language and Culture University. Highly learnerfriendly and task-centered, Step Up develops all four language skills while incorporating the ACTFL 5Cs. Students will learn all the necessary material to engage others in meaningful communication and gain a better understanding of the Chinese culture. This second edition features updated content, new images, and an additional vocabulary index that facilitates Chinese word search via English keywords. This series consists of three levels covering three to four years of instruction. Each level includes a Textbook, a Workbook and a Teacher’s Guide. Each Textbook offers ten thematic-based lessons. The accompanying Workbook features a wide variety of different types of exercises to enhance students’ proficiency in all four language skills. The Teacher’s Guide can be downloaded from the program’s companion website (http://stepup.cengageclt.com) which also offers a pinyin pronunciation guide, interactive vocabulary flashcards, mp3 files, and additional practices. Step Up makes an excellent course material for high school students as well as highly-motivated middle school students who have had little or no prior exposure to the Chinese language.
