Publisher Comments:

Now learning non-Roman-alphabet languages is as easy as A-B-C!

Readers wanting to learn the basics of reading and writing a new language that employs script will find all they need in the Teach Yourself Beginner's Script series. Each book includes a step-by-step introduction to reading and writing in a new language as well as tips and practice exercises to build learners' skills. Thanks to the experts at Teach Yourself, script will no longer be all "Greek" to language learners--unless of course, it is Greek script! Teach Yourself Beginner's Script series books feature:

  • Origins of the language
  • A systematic approach to mastering the script
  • Lots of "hands-on" exercises and activities
  • Practical examples from real-life situations

Synopsis:

Learners are practically taken by the hand and instructed on the Chinese script. Opening the door to the fundamentals of reading and writing, this book includes 100 line drawings, self-testing activities and exercises, and examples taken from signs, menus, and other real-life situations.
