How is the Mandarin Matrix product organised?

The 240 Mandarin Matrix Chinese Readers are organised into six colour coded levels - Orange, Blue, Green, Purple, Brown and Red, ranging from beginner, to intermediate and advanced. Each level consists of 40 titles which are available in simplified or traditional Chinese.

How do I know which colour book is suitable for which grade of students?

The Chinese Readers are suitable for children aged 4 years and above. Students begin with the Orange level books (level 1) and work their way up until they reach the Red level books (level 6). At the back of each book there is a list of key vocabulary with English translation and Pinyin to help students familiarise themselves with the meaning of the new Chinese words learned and reinforce pronunciation respectively.
