The “Series of Specialized Chinese Textbooks for Foreigners Studying in China – Chinese for Traditional Chinese Medicine” is suitable for foreigners who are in China studying traditional Chinese medicine and related subjects and whose Chinese proficiency reaches or approaches HSK level 4. The aim is to teach foreigners the listening, speaking, reading and writing skills needed in the studies of traditional Chinese medicine and related subjects and help smooth their way into college by teaching them the technical terms and expressions. The series is specifically designed for students supported by the Chinese Government Scholarship, including three books, respectively for the integrated course, the listening and speaking course, and the reading and writing course. As the three books interconnect with one another in TCM knowledge and language points, it is suggested that they be used together.
This is the book for the listening and speaking course, including a textbook and a book of listening script and reference answers. The new words, texts, and listening exercises are provided with audio recording.
