Overview

What you need to master Chinese--all in one box!

Whether on your own or as supplement to your class, Mastering Chinese will get you where you want to be with your Chinese language skills.

Written in a friendly, non-intimidating style, this program introduces essential grammar and focuses on correct pronunciation using pinyin. Many exercises are enhanced by audio clips on the accompanying audio CDs; just look for the earphone icon and listen to the appropriate track. These audio bites are helpful to your understanding how Chinese is pronounced.

You will also get exposure to Chinese script with the pinyin in parallel throughout--so that you will increasingly become familiar with the script.

With its authoritative yet accessible guidance, Mastering Chinese is your essential tool to enhancing your skills and building your confidence in conversing in the language.

Inside you'll find:

  • Essential Chinese vocabulary for everyday conversations
