About This Book

Due the inherent difficulty of Chinese characters, native English speakers can learn spoken Chinese words much faster than they can learn to write them. This book focuses on the challenges faced by English-speaking learners. It has detailed and clear explanations in English to help with Chinese pronunciation, grammar, usage, and culture, and offer learning strategies that work best for each. The book comes with a DVD, which features 40 videos, with dozens of native speakers filmed on location in several different Chinese-speaking societies. It also comes with an audio CD, which provides over 6 hours of native-speaker audio, including all of the book's conversations.
