Summary

While in school, we learned stuff we probably don’t use today. However, language is essential to almost every aspect of the human condition. How do you expand your business beyond your continent for more sales? How are you going to express your love for the beautiful lady who just walked past? How do you get directions to the magnificent Great Wall? With the knowledge of language, that’s how. 

This book contains a lexicon of some of the most commonly used words in everyday Chinese conversation. It makes use of the age-old learning techniques of repetition and rote memorization to condition the brain for learning Chinese as quickly as possible. In addition, an auxiliary feature called story mode has been included to aid the listener in a test for comprehension. Finally, it should be noted that while this book will aid in a visual recognition and comprehension of words in the Chinese language, students must also understand their proper pronunciations. To help with this, an accompanying audiobook is also available to enable listening lessons. 

And so, from the beautiful city of Beijing, the city of love and all things fashionable, we present to you, The Simple Way to Learn Chinese.

Great audible

Very basic HSK level 1 character you'd learn in most beginner Chinese courses and audibles. I recommend this audible for anyone who wants to practice writing, especially beginner learners.

Useful practice.

Very useful practice sheets. Wish it was not fancy writing style and that there was a pronunciation helper of some sort. It is almost meditative practising on these.

Makes Chinese seem a lot less intimidating.

Got this as my first attempt to learn anything about Chinese. I like the idea of going through this audible before moving on to a full-on beginning Chinese audible. The intro is very concise and informative.

Great introduction into Chinese

A great introduction to Chinese Characters. I am trying to self teach myself Chinese characters as I am planning on moving to China in the next couple of years so I thought this would be a great audible and introduction.

learning Mandarin.

This is a great resource to help learn to write characters, and to help teach some of the first characters. I use it as a reference while learning. For the price, I would recommend it.

Excellent primer for beginners

This is the Chinese calligraphy instructional audible for which I have been searching for 50 years (on and off, of course). It provides not only the sequence of each stroke but also the direction with which to make the stroke properly.

Great!

I recommend this to people learning Chinese grammar because it takes care of the structure rules. It takes a while to get used to the structure but that is not the fault of the audible.

The approach is very practical

it goes into more detail about the grammar used in Chinese conversation. Again, the approach is very practical and teaches very specific points with many examples. If you are studying Mandarin, this Audiobook is a must!

Its a very practical

It's a very practical way to learn Chinese because it is a good blend of examples and (important for many people) it explains the rules and the grammar at the same time.
