Chinese Traditions and Festivals is a collection of easy-to-read stories giving you the background to many of China’s ancient customs and traditions. Each story is written in easy-to-understand Chinese, using simple sentences, and will greatly enhance your character recognition.
The book is ideal for students who have reached an intermediate level in Chinese (i.e. approximately two years of full-time language study) and want to improve their reading skills. The vocabulary lists assume that you have already completed Chinese Made Easier 1-4 (实用速成汉语1-4) by Martin Symonds & Tian Haohao published by Shaanxi Normal University Press and can therefore recognize 440 basic characters. You can study this book along with Chinese Made Easier 5.
