For those who have had a couple of semesters of Chinese and want to continue studying.

For one hour we will have dialogue practice.

We are currently using the textbook Reading Into a New China (Volume 2), 2nd edition.

As a supplement to the book, learners are encouraged to use the related content that we upload on the (free!) Memrise web site ( (Note: we are not currently updating our own course on Memrise since there is an existing course just for the textbook we now use, although it is for a previous edition ( so the lists will differ very slightly.)

Audio files for each chapter are available at:

We meet almost every Saturday at the Arlington Central Library on North Quincy Street.
