This review is from: Easy Peasy Chinese: Mandarin Chinese for Beginners (Reissues Education 2014) (Hardcover)
This is a lovely book, suitable for the absolute beginner. Combining the CD and the book really helps vocab to stick. It introduces words in a way that enables you to build your own simple phrases. It looks like a book that is aimed at children, but I think it would suit anyone looking to learn the very basics of Mandarin. It will equip you with enough vocab to talk about yourself a little and to get by on a holiday in China. The book itself is about A5 size, and the CD comes slotted inside the front cover, so you could easily fit it in your suitcase.
