About the Series

Compiled under the sponsorship of the China National Office for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language (NOTCFL), and in consultation with the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK) Guidelines, the New Practical Chinese Reader (NPCR) series is designed to help native English speakers easily learn Chinese.

Based on the highly acclaimed and time-tested Practical Chinese Reader (PCR), the New Practical Chinese Reader has been entirely revised and updated. It combines the grammatical strengths of the old Practical Chinese Reader with contemporary material and more emphasis on the learner’s ability to use Chinese in everyday conversation. The New Practical Chinese Reader consists of 70 lessons in six volumes, covering beginning to intermediate levels, for three years of instruction.

The series develops the learner’s ability to communicate in Chinese through the study of language structure, language function, and related cultural knowledge along with the training in listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills.
