Exploring in Chinese is an intermediate-level multimedia Chinese program consisting of a student text and accompanying DVD that uses unscripted dialogues as the basis for students to make the transition from the basic skills acquired at the elementary level to the more complex comprehension skills required at the intermediate level. This two-volume set spans the third and fourth semesters of study, following the first two semesters covered in the elementary program, Communicating in Chinese, also by Cynthia Ning.

Cynthia Ning is associate director of the Center for Chinese Studies at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa. She regularly conducts teacher-training sessions for secondary and post-secondary levels on performance-based language testing and training, and gives a wide range of lectures on Chinese culture to both academic and nonacademic audiences. She has also served as president of the international Chinese Language Teachers Association.
