E-book with Audio

The complete novel was converted into an online E-book with audio, which is part of the Readers' Tool collection.  Students are encouraged to listen to the book while reading so as to lessen the burden of recognizing Chinese characters. Moreover, the E-book also provides great convenience for students to make notes or look up in dictionaries by simply copying and pasting. Students are also encouraged to use the search function to locate keywords in skimming and scanning so as to increase their reading efficiency. Acoustic reading assignment is also designed to help students improve their pronunciation, tones, intonation and fluency through imitating the professional broadcaster who made the audio for the novel.
