Teach Yourself takes the pain out of picking up the Chinese language

Get Started in Mandarin Chinese requires no prior experience in the language and gives you the opportunity to study at a reasonable, steady pace.

You are in control of your learning experience, so you never feel overwhelmed or rushed.

This practical course introduces the new language without inundating you and includes dialogues and exercises, a helpful pronunciation section, manageable lists of practical vocabulary, a glossary of grammar terms, and more.

Features: Lots of instant help with common problems and quick tips for success, based on the author's many years of experience Tests in the book to keep track of your progress
