Summary

Clever, rich, and single, the beautiful Ān Mò (Emma Woodhouse) is focused on her career as fashion designer in the glamour of 21st-century Shanghai. She sees no need for romance in her life, but when she tries to find a boyfriend for her new friend Fangfang (Harriet), her carefully laid plans being to unravel. As she ignores the warnings of her good friend Shi Wenzheng (Mr. Knightley), her decisions bring consequences that she never expected. With its witty and charming characters, Emma is often seen as Jane Austen’s most flawless work.

Mandarin Companion is a series of easy-to-understand novels in Chinese that are fun to listen to and proven to accelerate language learning. Every book in the Mandarin Companion series is carefully written to use characters, words, and grammar that a learner is likely to know.

This series is designed to combine simplicity of characters with an easy-to-understand storyline, which helps learners to expand their vocabularies and language comprehension abilities. The more they listen, the better they will become at reading and grasping the Chinese language.

Helpful way to learn Chinese

Before I purchased Emma from Audible, I had bought the text of Emma: Mandarin Companion from Amazon. I was pleased to see I could buy the audio so I could listen to the correct pronunciation. The narrator speaks the words clearly, and I can easily follow along with the text. As I become more comfortable with the text, I'll practice only listening to the audio. I also appreciated that I could speed up the narration, and I experimented with listening to the book at 1, 1.25, and 1.5 speed. In sum, this audio is another quality language learning tool from Mandarin Companion.

SO Helpful for Intermediate Chinese Learners

I’ve been looking for something like this for months! My 听力 needs work, but anytime I’ve tried to listen to something else available via Audible or podcasts, I end up spending time working on the many vocabulary words in the recording and not working on listening. This book was great. I took it slow and steady, focusing on the recording and only doing 5-10 minutes in a sitting. I saw improvement over the course of this book and plan to listen to all of the available audiobooks. Can’t wait for more content here and at the 450+ character level!
