Barendsen, Robert D., Ed.
This is the English-language portion of the special examinations used by the authorities of the People's Republic of China in selecting the initial groups of Chinese coming to the United States under the official exchange agreement. The examination proper is preceded by an introduction which provides background information on the test itself and the scoring system. The written section of the test includes the following: (1) multiple choice questions on usage; (2) sentences for correction of errors; (3) reading comprehension passages; and (4) sentences and paragraphs for translation from English to Chinese, and from Chinese to English. The oral part of the examination consists of two sections: a short English paragraph to be read aloud by the examinee, and a free conversation period. (AMH)
