Learn Chinese in China

Looking for a textbook


Recommended Posts

In the past, I spent time hoarding the stuff that I downloaded online.

A few days ago, I rediscovered a folder on my computer titled

"Advanced Chinese Textbook audio". I'd like to find out the real name of the book, instead of the generic title that I decided to use as the folder name.

From the looks of it, each chapter seems to have

1. 3 dialogues with accompanying listening comprehension questions for each dialogue

2. 1 or 2 talk which explains the new vocabularys covered in the chapter

3. 1 or 2 text

Look at the attached screenshot.

I have 22 folders like the one in the picture.

So I am guessing that this textbook has 22 chapters. Maybe not.


I have already listened to the first few chapters and the content is fantastic.

Natural, varied, and entertaining.


I will also attach one audio file for sample.

It sounds interesting, but the dialogues are probably used as tingli since they have questions, so it might be difficult to check whether they match a textbook or not.

Better post the mp3 for the text of chapter 1.

Yeah, that sounds like a possibility too.

This set of audio would have no problem being a stand-alone learning materials.

Why the mp3 for the chapter 1 text?

Because it's easier to look up chapter 1 either in a physical textbook or in sample chapters or previews online.

And a "text" stands a better chance of being actually written in a textbook.

And it might have a title that one could find in a TOC.


(And often the first audio file of an MP3 CD has an intro where they say the book's title and/or a jingle that could give a hint about the publisher.)

Do they say the title of the lesson or text?

No. They start right away without any bells and whistles in the beginning, which I like but turned out to be not so helpful for finding the name of this book.
