wonderful - such a gift to learning
on January 23, 2013
the writer has a talent for precision and clarity. she is obviously expert in English and Mandarin - only someone who is could write something like this. everyone - not just those who want to study Chinese, should buy the two - grammar and vocabulary - barcharts. we are all going to have to get some understanding of the language (the Chinese already have - marketing people know that the PRC, of all countries, has the largest number of English speakers). this and the vocabulary edition provide a painless and reassuring base for learning Mandarin. everything a student of Mandarin learns will branch from the information in these guides.
i am so relieved i could get this (and the Mandarin vocabulary edition).
