Step Up with Chinese《成长》is an innovative, standards-based Chinese textbook series for junior and senior high school students with little or no Chinese background. Highly learner-friendly and task-centered, Step Up develops all four language skills while incorporating the principles of ACTFL Five Cs – Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities. 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 comprises a Textbook and a Workbook. Each Textbook offers ten themed lessons that are structured around key communicative goals. It features a clear, step-by-step approach to help students progress from small steps towards larger communicative goals. The accompanying Workbook features a wide variety of activities to give students plenty of practice on all the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. The program’s companion website (http://stepup.cengageclt.com) offers a Pinyin pronunciation guide, interactive vocabulary flashcards, free mp3 audio downloads, additional practice exercises and password-protected instructors’ resources.
