The advanced series is divided into four parts, organized by theme: Life and Entertainment; Media and Education; Social Realities; and World, Politics, and Economics. Encounters offers advanced learners a complete set of tools to improve their language skills and enhance their understanding of Chinese culture and society. Encounters II consists of textbook and workbook for Lessons 11-20. The first 10 lessons appear in the companion set, Encounters I.
