Chinese basics made easy--and fun!

Studying Chinese can be intimidating. Not only do you face the usual challenges of learning a new language--vocabulary, grammar, verb tenses--but you also have to contend with a non-Roman script. These formidable obstacles frustrate many learners. But now there is a program that helps you overcome these hurdles so you can be successful in your Chinese language studies.

The extraordinarily accessible ReadandSpeak Chinese for Beginners entertains you while you learn, lessening the anxiety of a new script and increasing your desire to master Chinese. This program teaches you basic vocabulary and explains sentence structures for eight key areas of everyday life--introducing yourself, saying where you're from, asking what things are, asking where things are located, describing objects and people, asking how to get around, talking about your family, and describing what you do. The accompanying CD features all the key words and phrases so you can hear how they are pronounced and repeat them after the speaker.

Inside you will find:

  • Clear explanations of how to use basic phrases in everyday conversations
  • Entertaining activities, games, and puzzles with which to check your progress
  • Illustrated flash cards to help you memorize key phrases
  • Listening exercises and audio games on the CD to further reinforce your comprehension

Whether you use this program on your own or as a supplement to your formal studies, ReadandSpeak Chinese for Beginners gives you the tools to overcome the difficulties presented by a non-Roman script and master the Chinese language.
