These innovative DVDs provide a lively study resource for beginning students of Chinese, using real-world communication and familiar situations. Based on Margaret Mian Yan and Jennifer Li-chia Liu's popular textbooks "Interactions I and II: A Cognitive Approach to Beginning Chinese", the "Chinese in Action DVDs" can be used alongside the texts or as stand-alone study tools. Twenty live-action videos present dialogues on everyday themes and cross-cultural communication, revolving around attending college, shopping, making phone calls, dining out, going to movies, holidays, and spending time with friends.The four central characters - a mainland Chinese, a Taiwanese, a Chinese American and a non-Chinese American - will be familiar to students using Interactions. The DVD format allows for great flexibility of use, in the classroom or for individual study at home, using a DVD player or personal computer. Users may choose to watch the videos without subtitles or with Chinese subtitles, and may easily move from main menus to specific lessons. This classroom-tested approach makes learning Chinese an interactive, cognitive process.
