College Mandarin Chinese on Your Own Advanced level 1 is a sequel to my three previously published, highly ranked courses: College Mandarin Chinese on Your Own Beginning Level and Intermediate Level 1 and 2. The beginning level of this sequence had been ranked no. 1 in student reveiw and sales in Chinese language category on paid online platforms in the world. This course is the first half of advanced level Chinese, and allows you to learn in just one month a full semester's college Chinese curriculum at advanced level based on the same range of vocabulary, grammar, and discussion topics. As the other three courses, its design simulates to a great extent the teacher-student interaction in the classroom, such as found in oral exercises of answering questions, reading after the teacher, describing pictures, translation and grammar drill, etc. By using hundreds of entertaining pictures that immediately tests your application of learned language information after every slide, this course brings teaching, reviewing, testing and application of language into a quick succession simulating the cognitive mode of immersive learning of language. Therefore, it combines the benefits of classroom teaching, Rosetta Stone Chinese and online learning while avoiding their shortcomings. As the fourth sequel of language learning sequence (altogether five courses), it allows you to learn the discursive language of discussion and debate on social topics: such as whether college students should do part-time jobs, the comparison of chidren's education in China and in America, comparison of Chinese and American festivals, Chinese georgraphy and tourist spots, the huge change of Chinese society since reform and open door policy, health, diet and physical exercises in China, etc. Through this course, you will learn advanced vocabulary and grammar for discussing popular social topics in China. The instructor is again me, Professor Hong Zeng, an awarding-winning professor of Chinese for 16 years at prestigious American liberal arts colleges and national universities. After this course, you will be fully ready to study advanced Chinese 2, the last course in this language sequence.
