I believe that this extracurricular reading of the Harry Potter novels will bring on my Mandarin in leaps and bounds.

The stories selected here come from well-known tales, poems, or stories. The Chinese vocabulary presented in this section is richer and more specific than in the intermediate reading section. The advanced student is here encouraged to grow less dependent on pinyin or translation in order to read Chinese without support. Both texts and vocabulary guides are part of the LittleNex Chinese learning program.

The Chinese Proverbs are annotated and all advanced vocabulary words are translated and transcribed in pinyin.
Given the difficulty for reading and understanding Chinese poems, the Chinese Poems for Advanced Students are annotated and ALL characters are translated and transcribed in pinyin.
Peach Blossom Shangri-la is written with traditional characters with NO pinyin transcription. However, the English translation is provided to aid with comprehension.
