[source]  HANBAN                [ Date of issue]  Apr 23, 2009

The International Chinese teaching materials Everyday Chinese (2006) Chinese New Beginning and Chinese New Targets (2004), developed by the Office of Chinese Language Council International (Hanban), have been used as Chinese teaching materials around the world in recent years, winning wide acclaim from Chinese language learners. Meanwhile, according to users’ feedback, various problems have been pointed out, such as being unsuitable for classroom teaching, too difficult in content, including too much obscure characters or phrases, lack multi-media supplementary materials, etc. In order to draw on the wisdom of the masses, a collection of plans for the revision of teaching materials is issued as follows:
