Very well structured and clearly explained’ – Dr Kan Qian, The Open University, UK
Basic Chinese introduces the essentials of Chinese syntax. Each of the 25 units deals with a particular grammatical point and provides associated exercises. Features include:
a clear, accessible format
many useful language examples
jargon-free explanations of grammar
ample drills and exercises
a full key to exercises.
All Chinese entries are presented in both Pinyin romanization and Chinese characters, and are accompanied, in most cases, by English translations to facilitate self-tuition as well as classroom teaching in both spoken and written Chinese.
