Practical Chinese Reader was first published in 1981 by BLCU. It consists of six books made up of stories, new characters and audio recordings for learners.
It doesn’t only teach the language. It also allows learners to discover Chinese culture through different stories. Very early after it’s publication, the book received many praises.
Some German and American academics lauded it’s structure and content. In 2000, Theresa Jen & Ping Xu cited it in their paper Sino-Platonic Papers as an ‘easy and slow approach’ to learn.
This contrasts with Chinese Primer, which is the total opposite.
