Teach Yourself Mandarin Chinese

£14.99

Product description

A self-access course in Mandarin Chinese, this title should appeal to anyone who is learning alone or who needs extra material to supplement a course. There is comprehensive teaching of the Chinese script, but you decide whether or not to learn the script; if it's not necessary for you, the book makes it easy to follow the pinyin transcriptions. This new edition has been reset in a new style, which is designed to make it easier to use, and the accompanying recorded material is now available on CD. The units are carefully graded so that you consolidate your knowledge and build your confidence as you work through the book. The new language is introduced through dialogues based on everyday situations so you should learn what is most useful in preparation for a trip to China. The grammar explanations are simple and do not assume that you have learned Chinese or any other language before. Exercises throughout (with answers at the back of the book) so you can check your progress and identify areas that are causing you problems. Finally, there are English-Chinese and Chinese-English vocabulary listings for quick reference.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
