Synopsis:

About the Series: Introducing the Basic Chinese series, a revolutionary new approach to learning Chinese used by top State Department officials, business negotiators, diplomats, adult learners, and students from Americas top colleges. Unlike other language learning programs, Basic Chinese separates learning to “speak” and “listen” (easier for English speakers to learn) from learning to “read” and “write” (more challenging because of the unfamiliarity of the Chinese characters that take time to commit to memory.) Designed and classroom-tested by renowned international language educator Cornelius C. Kubler, this one-of-a-kind series includes an extraordinary wealth of audio and video materials included for free. Start learning Chinese today with the most innovative and effective Chinese series available and youll make faster progress than you ever thought possible!
