In the last ten years, we have seen a significant increase of interest in Chinese language and culture in K settings.
As is true for many foreign language programs, not all Chinese programs provide the same quality of education. Authentic and meaningful learning materials, especially textbooks, are the foundation of any high-quality foreign language instructional program. 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. Further, the video is nothing short of great. I especially appreciate the cultural materials and also the Skillbuilder exercises. Encounters promises just that. The cultural segments are great because they let students see different points of view in Chinese. You pick up the subtleties and authenticity of the language.
Students are inspired by seeing the video and seeing Americans speak Chinese. I love it. It's hard for American students to learn in the traditional Chinese way.
Encounters is more fluid and does not promote rote memorization. A wonderful textbook! And the video series provides an authentic and high-quality environment in which to learn Chinese. It's so authentic and speaking-based versus grammar-based.
My students love the video and always want to watch more. I highly recommend Encounters. Encounters will be a major contribution to the Chinese teaching field. Skip to main content.
