Chinese for Tomorrow uses an innovative, five-skilled approach that utilizes typing or Computer Chinese (CC) as a fifth skill and learning tool. Early emphasis on pinyin keyboarding lets learners immediately use the language in a practical and engaging way. Handwriting is introduced more gradually.
