Synopses & Reviews
A Trip to China is a two-volume textbook for students who have studied one year of Chinese. It is written for the same level as Chou and Chao's Intermediate Reader of Modern Chinese, but it differs in its focus. The former is a textbook that deals mainly with contemporary college life in America, while A Trip to China discusses the Chinese people and current issues in China from the point of view of an American student.

The text is in two volumes. The first contains lessons with simplified and traditional characters in juxtaposition, written by Chih-p'ing Chou. The second, by Der-lin Chao, contains vocabulary, grammar notes and exercises. Attached in Volume I are two separate vocabulary indexes in Pinyin and English. Volume II contains a sentence pattern index. Additionally, we have prepared audiocassettes for use as supplemental teaching material.
