WARNING: I hope you know French
Reviewed in the United States on April 9, 2019
Let me start by saying this book is very helpful. The mnemonics are great, the stories are helpful, the pictures are helpful.
However, the author clearly speaks French. If you do not, ~33% of these mnemonics are useless to you unless you are also willing to learn excessively random French words. I still find them helpful, but as I have no interest in learning French I found the extent of the French mnemonics in an English book very obnoxious.
In fairness, it does seem that French has a lot more syllabic similarity with Chinese than does English though.
