3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By J. Chung on February 17, 2007
Format: Paperback
I highly recommend this book for anyone who's interested in learning day-to-day, practical Chinese vocabulary. The book spans 11 chapters, with each chapter representing a likely environment or scenario you would encounter every day (e.g., Health, Eating & Drinking, On the Road, Services, etc.). I would say that each chapter is comprised of 90% vocabulary/phrases and 10% cultural education (etiquette, situational background, & advice). Be forewarned, however: this book is written entirely in English and Pinyin, so people expecting Chinese characters should steer clear!

Overall, this is a fantastic book for Chinese vocabulary immersion. And the best part is, all the vocabulary is practical in nature. Great for "every day" situations, and great for learners of Chinese (like myself).
