Product Description

Synopsis

This continuation builds on the material in the earlier book, allowing users to expand their familiarity with Mandarin Chinese. The new audio CD feature is especially helpful to learning and understanding the language as spoken. The ten lessons, although similar in structure to those in the earlier volume, provide a stronger emphasis on grammar and vocabulary. The glossary features vocabulary lists from both volumes.

Unlike some other Chinese language books on the market, this one caters to serious students who want to progress, using clear explanations and translations, and most of all, I, for one, believe that it fills the gap between more basic courses and higher levels ahead.
Had there been courses like this when I first started learning this language, I sure wouldn't have suffered so much.

This is one of the best laid out and most useful textbooks I've come across. The label "intermediate" might be a bit misleading, though. I'd categorize it as suitable for pre-intermediate students altough the second half of the book definitely moves into intermediate level territory. All the chapters contain very useful and applicable vocab and grammar that is common in both daily conversations and in a business context. The author also does a good job explaining the various new grammar structures in the dialogues and how they differ from English syntax. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone trying to take their Chinese to the next level - no matter if you're doing self-study or have a teacher to help you.

I really recommend this book after the beginners, it is a bit easier than other intermediate books. And it comes with a CD! Enjoy it.

Excellent continuation of the first volume 31 Dec. 2006
By Eds Word - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This continuation of Yong Ho's "Beginning Chinese" follows a slightly different format, First of all, it does not have the cultural insight digressions that made the first volume so enjoyable (however the useful "Language Points" are still there). Secondly the structure of the chapters are different; this volume has reading and translation exercises that the first volume didnt have (not a surprising development as one progresses in learning the language). Thirdly the quality and organization of the CD is much improved over the CDs found in "Beginning Chinese." The book concludes with a guide on internet resources and computing in Chinese that is very helpful. As is the case for Ho's "Beginning Chinese" and his "Chinese-English Frequecy Dictionary" you'll get some grammatical insights to Mandarin that are difficult to find elsewhere.

Another winning text by Yong Ho 5 Jun. 2005
By Clopper Almon Jr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Please see my review of "Beginner's Chinese with 2 Audio CDs".

"Intermediate Chinese" is even better than "Beginner's Chinese" because the font for the characters is large enough to be easily read. All of the good things said about the first book apply also to this one.
GOOD, PLEASE CREATE AN INTERMEDIATE 2 9 Feb. 2010
By Digmar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have recently received this book. Good presentation, good recordings and good vocabulary. Maybe some people think it is kind of basic, but it really helps those focused on listening skill and vocab building. If you want to improve your reading skill, the pinyin subtitles may complicate your way, since it gives you a cheating temptation of reading them instead of the characters.

I recommend. Please publish another one (Intermediate II), following this thematic guidance.

Thank You

useful guide to chinese language 4 Jan. 2007
By I. Rubin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had some chinese language many years ago and wanted to renew it, and especially to get a handle on spoken chinese, as I can read reasonably well. the dialogues were useful, the grammar lessons and exercises especially good.

I wish there were a third book I could go to from this one.
