Authorized by Hanban, the YCT Standard Course has been developed under the joint efforts of Higher Education Press and Chinese Testing International (CTI). The target readers are primary and middle school students from overseas who take Chinese as an elective course, and who are going to take the YCT. With the YCT test papers as its primary source, the YCT Standard Course aims to achieve an integrated combination of function and fun, provide a scientific curriculum and effective teaching methods, as well as stimulate students’ multiple intelligence. It is a series of textbooks with a new approach that embodies the idea of “combining testing and teaching”. It is suitable for the Confucius Classrooms in different countries as well as other Chinese teaching institutions and self-taught learners.
