Book Description
This is the first business-Chinese textbook for advanced learners of Chinese in which current economic issues in China are addressed in depth. The goal of each lesson is to help students develop their language skills in a dynamic and communicative context, understand economic trends and situations in modern China, and expand their critical- thinking abilities. Advanced Business Chinese is organized into five thematic units: international trade, management and marketing, finance, the stock market, and economic law. Each unit presents authentic reading materials-including case studies-along with pre-reading questions, glossaries with pinyin transliterations and English explanations, and varieties of exercises and activities. For the serious student with an interest in business and other professional spheres, the book offers diverse perspectives on economic issues in China today, ranging from how China fits into the global economy to how economic matters affect the businesses and citizens of the nation.

From the Back Cover
"Advanced Business Chinese stimulates thought and discussion on the big issues surrounding economic reform in China, international commerce, and global finance. Up-to-date and intelligently designed, this book is filled with useful cultural and professionally oriented information."-Victor Mair, University of Pennsylvania

A Good Textbook, March 3, 2006
Reviewer: C. Murray (Boston, MA)

I have been studying Chinese for almost eight years since my sophomore year in high school. As a college senior, I feel that this is one of the better textbooks out there. The articles are not too hard to read once the vocabulary has been studied and learned. It will help any serious student of Chinese learn the vocabulary and grammar utilized in the business world.
