JIA YOU! CHINESE FOR THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY is a full-year program for intermediate students of (Mandarin) Chinese. It is designed for college students in second-year Chinese as a foreign language program and senior high school students taking the AP Chinese Language and Culture Exam.

Each lesson consists of Chinese texts, content-based presentations of vocabulary, grammar, common expressions, and exercises.
