Real Life Chinese

The Real Life Chinese (RLC) materials are designed for self-study but are most effective when combined with well-designed contextualized learning that includes feedback. The materials are designed to allow the user to familiarize him or herself with the basic phonological and structural patterns associated with modern standard Chinese. Autonomous interaction with Chinese counterparts in Chinese is the ultimate goal.


It includes 4 units of listening and speaking materials, 3 units of reading and writing materials, intermediate readers, and movie classes.
