9780071766425: Mastering Chinese: The Complete Course for Beginners [With Book(s)]

Teaching Mandarin Chinese in a modern, structured and engaging way, Mastering Chinese is suitable for both classroom and 'teach yourself' learners at all levels. It has a friendly conversational style with useful emphasis on correct pronunciation using pinyin. Introducing fascinating script and essential grammar, the course helpfully uses the script with the pinyin in parallel throughout. With interesting cultural insights and lively illustrations, this is what you would expect from a modern Chinese language course but can't find! There are two CDs available to accompany this book.

Note:This book(ISBN 978-0230200135) is the paperback only edition and does not include the CDs.

Review:

'I've been using this book for about 4 months now, and I must say it is definitely a good book to have especially for beginners like myself! I found it very easy to comprehend, with English translations available for new phrases. Mastering Chinese not only covers reading and writing exercises, but also listening and speaking in the right tones - the CD comes in particularly handy here. The book is very well-structured, covering thoroughly the vital topics such as numbers, introducing oneself, transportations, date/time etc - basically it covers everything you need to know to survive on the streets of China! Its easy-to-grasp approach to the language makes it highly attractive, while its reasonably compact size makes it fit as a travel guide. Would definitely recommend it.' - Kelly Chung, Amazon

'The book guides you throughout, with English, Pinyin and Chinese characters, and youre given tasks to work through using the CD's. It is a great learning source for complete beginners, and even for those who may have known Mandarin before, but are now pretty rusty at it. It sucessfully teaches you to learn to speak well and recognize and write the characters. I can say that using this book, I have gotten A+ in my exams so far! :D Great book! - Nustun, Amazon

'I found this book considerably more useful than a standard dictionary, and in comparison to other Mandarin teaching books it is indispensible. ' - Matthew Green, Amazon

'This book is very suitable for adult learners, either for self-study or used in a classroom. The price of this book including CDs is very competitive too. A good book for meeting the increasing demands on learning Chinese in the UK. A big thank you to Catherine Hua Xiang for your dedication and hard work. Only a minor suggestion, perhaps the author can place a radical index at the back of the book, explaining the meanings of the common radicals to the learners, making the learning of characters a bit easier.' -Linlin Fang, University of Newcastle, UK
