4.0 out of 5 stars Not For Beginners! But A Great Book., 4 May 2010
This review is from: Basic Chinese: A Grammar and Workbook (Grammar Workbooks) (Paperback)
I have been learning Chinese for a number of years now and fancied this book because of the Workbook Exercises in it.
My level of Chinese is pretty good but I found this book to be misleading for Beginners as it jumps straight in to fairly difficult exercises. I am able to go through this book with little problem but if you are a fresh beginner then this book will not be very useful. When you have a sound knowledge of basic Chinese then I would say this is a good book to have for grammar practice.

All in all the book is laid out nicely and the exercises help retain information well. My wife is Chinese and she said she couldn't do some of the exercises in the book cause it didn't really make sense! She says most of it has valuable info though!

Beginners Beware!!!!
