The STANDARD CHINESE series of elementary and intermediate Chinese language texts has been developed at Yale University by Parker Po-fei Huang and Hugh M. Stimson. These texts employ PINYIN romantization, emphasize natural dialogue, offer full explanations of grammar, introduce a generous, modern adult vocabulary, and include both simplified and unsimplified forms of the character. The series is "two track", that is, there is a spoken language series and an accompanying written language series. Each volume in the series is also supported by student workbooks and there is a character flash card set also available. The series is presently being used at Yale and at many other college and high school Chinese language programs.
