Revised edition of a 2003 (Tuttle Publishing) text originally written by Lee, revised here by Darell Tibbles, which demonstrates the essential characters necessary to cover basic conversation and language situations. Complete information is given for each character, including the meaning, pronunciation, and written components. The text includes an answer key for all chapter and section review exercises formatted for single answers. The new edition's contents have been revised to coincide with the development of Chinese language instruction, and includes a restructured character order to help learners connect characters based on function, adjustments to lesson lengths, and greater attention to incorporating spoken language throughout the exercises. Includes an alphabetical index and a radical index. Credentials for Lee and Tibbles are not stated. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
