Authentic-like Materials for the Chinese Language Classroom

It can be difficult to find meaningful and level-appropriate authentic materials for the foreign language classroom. Often they can be low-quality, overwhelming, copyrighted, or sometimes non-existent. With this project, I have created a variety of classroom ready authentic-like materials designed for a number of units and tasks from role-play speaking practice to reading comprehension activities that replicate as close as possible materials students would engage with in real-world situations.
