This is a practical and useful book that is unified to combine a regular textbook containing conversation/vocabulary/phases with four language tools such as writing/reading/speaking/listening.
This textbook provides English translations for Chinese language in writing/reading/speaking and listening. The chapters of the book help American-speaking individuals quickly translate English words and phrases into Chinese. Including many situations that occur in daily life; such as asking for help, finding a doctor, identifying food allergies, restaurant dining, shopping, greetings, and etc. can be found in the chapters. Best of all, you can gain confidence in communicating in the 21st century with Chinese-speaking individuals.
Students found this textbook useful during interactions with others because of the simplicity of the chapters. The book is also convenient to carry because it’s soft cover.
As the author, I would like to reiterate that my purpose in writing each chapter of this resourceful book is similar to the trunk of a big tree that establishes and prepares students for a solid and stable language foundation in Chinese. I am hopeful that you too, find the text, conversations, vocabulary, and phrases practical and useful in assisting your ability to listen, speak, read, write, and learn Chinese.
Jasmine Tang is currently a professor at SUNY Geneseo in Geneseo, NY and MCC (Monroe Community College) in Rochester, NY where she enjoys teaching the Chinese language to students and has written this book to enhance the learning experience for anyone that seeks to travel to China or learn the Chinese language.
