5.0 out of 5 stars Really helpful, 17 July 2011
I've been using this book to start learning characters as I'm starting Chinese at university this year.
It's been really helpful to give me a bit of a head start and I will continue working my way through it when I'm at university.
There are also online aids to accompany the book which I think is a really good idea and helpful for practising what I've learnt!

My only complaint is that the book doesn't teach stroke order or how to write characters, but it definitely does what it says on the tin!

Extremely helpful book and would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn Chinese!

-It made the… Read more
