“The authors of Encounters are masterful in creating truly learner-centered and effective classroom learning activities. The program distinguishes itself from other learning materials for its functional approach and authentic contexts, its emphasis on performance in learning, and, most of all, its innovative instructional design and user-friendly teaching tips.”—Jianhua Bai, Kenyon College, Journal of the Chinese Language Teachers Association
 
I strongly recommend the Encounters materials, a remarkable series of textbooks, to all Chinese instructors, especially those teaching at the high school and college levels. I believe both teachers and students will very much enjoy this exemplar of a new generation of language programming.”—Ting Shen, University of Mount UnionJournal of Technology and Chinese Language Teaching
 
Welcome to Level 2 of Encounters, a groundbreaking Chinese language program that features a dramatic series filmed entirely in China. The program’s highly communicative approach immerses learners in the Chinese language and culture through video episodes that directly correspond to units in the textbook. By combining a compelling story line with a wealth of educational materials, Encounters weaves a tapestry of Chinese language and culture rich in teaching and learning opportunities.
 
Encounters follows a carefully structured and cumulative approach. Students progress from listening and speaking to the more difficult skills of reading and writing Chinese characters, building grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation skills along the way.
 
THE ENCOUNTERS PROGRAM INCLUDES:
  • A dramatic series, filmed in Beijing, Qinghai Lake, Shanghai, Yangshuo, Suzhou, and Xi’an, making today’s China come alive
  • Video exercises and cultural segments that motivate students to learn
  • Full-color Student Books, available in printed and digital formats, integrated with the multimedia program
  • Online Workbooks to enhance learning outside the classroom
  • 300+ minutes of audio material for listening and speaking practice
  • A Character Trainer App for practicing and improving writing skills
