After over a year of work, Mandarin Companion level 2 is now available! The first level 2 title is Charles Dickens masterpiece Great Expectations. However, we are not releasing only one book, this tale will be released in two volumes; Part 1 and 2. Each book is approximately 30% longer in length than Level 1 and represents a step up in vocabulary and grammar used. Furthermore, both volumes will be available in print and ebook at the same time! Traditional Chinese versions will come shortly.
The ebooks are available on Amazon (part 1 and part 2). The print books are available for purchase (part 1 and part 2). Check out the book pages of Great Expectations (part 1 and part 2) for an overview and a small sample.
Next Steps for Mandarin Companion
This is literally a new chapter for Mandarin Companion. With the experience we have gained in producing our first 7 books at two different levels, we are poised to increase the number of titles we will release in 2016 and beyond.
So many people have sent us emails wanting to know how they can help because they have found the magic of reading. You can help! Here are some things you can do.
- Write reviews on Amazon and other platforms.
- Tell friends and teachers about the series and what it has done for you.
- Become more familiar with the principles of extensive reading so that you can better understand what we are trying to do, how it affects you, and how to discuss it with others (it will also make you look pretty smart at dinner parties).
