This text is the second in a series of three closely integrated volumes of spoken Chinese for use at the high-school and college levels.  Intermediate Chinese presents dialogues on everyday topics together with analysis of anticipated points of difficulty for the student and numerous sentences illustrating the usage of all new words and grammar.
The book consists of four units, with six lessons each.  The first five lessons of each unit contain new material; the sixth reviews the preceding five.  The review lessons contain a variety of drills, with no two lessons having exactly the same types of exercises.  All the main lessons, however, contain the following divisions:
-Dialogues (in Chinese)
-Sentences for New Words and Grammar (in Chinese)
-Review Sentences (in Chinese)
-Monologue (in Chinese)
-Questions (in Chinese)
-Dialogue (English translation)
-Sentences for New Words and Grammar (English translation)
-Review Sentences (English translation)
-Notes (in English)
 
Like its predecessor, Beginning Chinese, this work is aimed at secondary school and college levels. In pinyin romanization, the dialogue-form lessons are supplemented by exercises, notes, and a combined glossary and index covering all the new tiems introduced in the dialogues. The first two lessons review all of Beginning Chinese, and every sixth lesson is a thorough review of the preceding five. A hundred illustrations compliment the text. Mr. DeFrancis, research professor of Chinese at Seton Hall University, compiled Intermediate Chinese under contract with the U.S. Office of Education. Yale Linguistic Series, 7.
