In one form or another, Chinese is the language most spoken in the world. Although it has many different spoken forms, they are all written in exactly the same way. Using this book and accompanying CDs, you will learn Modern Standard Chinese which is understood by more Chinese speakers than any other form of the language. Teach Yourself Beginner's Chinese is the right course for you if you really want to learn Chinese but are daunted by the prospect of complicated grammar, classes and coursebooks. This book and accompanying CDs start right from the beginning and explain everything in simple English. There are hints throughout to make learning easy and you can learn at your own pace with plenty of practice of each new point. It is a friendly introduction to the language which will help you to understand and speak Chinese sufficiently well to function effectively in basic everyday situations, both business and social. The course will also offer you an insight into Chinese culture and there is even an opportuni- ty for you to find out something about the Chinese writing system if you want to.
