本書以幽默有趣的故事、文化對比的角度介紹臺灣和印度的文化特色。主要學習對象為在印度大學學習華語第二年、華語程度A2 - B1的印度學生，以文化比較與語言學習為主軸，設計在地化的教材。每一課分為七部分：課程目標及課文屬性、課文對話、短文、生詞、語法、跨文化延伸和語言任務。
Given that the Mandarin textbooks currently used by Indian universities are pretty outdated, bearing a large gap with the Indian culture and condition of the nation, TEC has been proactive in advancing pedagogies and teaching materials.
Incredible Mandarin is targeted at students learning Mandarin Chinese for the second year at Indian universities or those with Chinese skills between CEFR A2 and B1 levels. This book is designed with localized content aiming at cultural comparison and language learning for communication. The ten lessons are threaded by an interesting story, introducing cultural highlights of Taiwan and India through cross-culture comparison. Each lesson is divided into seven parts: Lesson Objectives and Topics, Dialogues, Readings, Vocabulary, Grammar, Cross-Cultural Extension, and Language Tasks.
With this book, we have finally started the trial and set foot on the expedition of language education materials for Indian learners. For an even better cross-cultural communication between India and Taiwan, we sincerely hope this textbook would lead more scholars to join us in developing and providing more diverse and adaptive teaching materials for learners in India.
