Why it’s easier!

What makes this book different from most other Chinese textbooks published in China?

  • The content of each lesson is intensely practical. We have assumed that you are living in China and want to communicate on everyday topics as quickly as possible. So only useful vocabulary, immediately relevant to your everyday needs, is included.
  • We have worked hard at trying to make the grammar explanations as simple and clear as possible, avoiding complicated linguistic terminology.
  • Each lesson contains an activity related to the topic in order to get you using the content as quickly as possible.
  • The reading & writing of Chinese characters is introduced at a manageable pace so you shouldn’t feel too overwhelmed.
