The JIA YOU! Workbook follows closely the theme of the main text to provide additional reading, writing, listening and speaking practice outside of the classroom. The Workbook exercises are modeled after the question types in the AP Chinese Language and Culture Exam. The bound-in CDs provide the audio program for all listening activities.

I am an AP Chinese teacher and the Jia You! textbook series is one of my favorites to use in my AP Chinese class. It's high-quality and written specifically to address the needs of an advanced AP Chinese course. I highly recommend it for advanced students looking to improve their cultural knowledge and reading comprehension skill.
The workbooks are a great complement along those lines because they are outstanding AP Chinese simulated tests. It's a wonder they don't advertise this fact more because the workbooks are not workbooks at all, but basically every chapter presents a simulated AP Chinese exam on the theme. There's listening, reading, writing and speaking assessments and each is appropriately timed and paced. The assessments are spot on for what an AP Chinese student is suppose to know and any student who goes through them all and does well is more than prepared for the exam.
Answers is the main problem. As in, there aren't any. I have the teacher manual...
Terrible description on the product because it did not state it is double the page as I expected it to be because half the book is on traditional Chinese I mean it is like 1/100 chance to be needing to use traditional because it is used ages ago I mean nobody use traditional now it is all simplified. That is some crap amount of pages added to the book and the price I mean when I first looked into this it look like some professional textbook but it turned out being not only bulky but half of the page was useless and I don't why these terrible author tried so hard to make the pages look like a pro and trick people to buy their crap because the title states as a encouragement but half of this book is useless you are using a time machine and going back to like the 1800th or just return this bull honkey and go buy some better textbooks saw lots of better one on amazon with over 50% sale so DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT TOTAL BULL HONKEY AND A WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME TO RETURN IT.
