US-China Review on the 'Understanding China Through Comics' series

Intern Intern - Tuesday, September 05, 2017

The latest edition of US-China Review features a helpful review of our Understanding China Through Comics series–much appreciated!

Here's a taste of what they have to say:

"Understanding a country’s history allows insight into the culture and behavior of the country and its citizens. Learning the language is one step. Learning about the culture gives a context for the language and what goes on in the country.

"I was happy to see this comic format for history. Chinese language is being taught in all but one state, according to the National K-12 Foreign Language Enrollment Survey. A comic format teaching China’s history is the perfect companion. The books also make great gifts for kids and adults."
