Beginner's Chinese - Book and double CD pack (Teach Yourself Languages S.)

£12.99

Product description

In one form or another, Chinese is the language the most spoken in the world. Although it has many spoken forms, they are all written in exactly the same way. This volume teaches Modern Standard Chinese which is understood by more Chinese speakers than any other form of the language. Designed for people who want to learn Chinese but who are daunted by the prospect of complicated grammar, classes and coursebooks, this course starts right from the beginning, explaining everything in simple English. There are hints throughout to make learning easy and you can learn at your own pace with plenty of practice of each new point. It is a friendly introduction to the language which should help you to understand and speak Chinese sufficiently well to function effectively in basic everyday situations, both social and business. The course also offers an insight into Chinese culture and offers the opportunity for you to find out something about the Chinese writing system if you want to. The book is divided into two main parts. Units one to ten introduce you to the basic structures and grammatical points you'll need in everyday situations. Units 12-21 deal with everyday situations such as booking
