5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - lf learning chinese then its a must buy, 26 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Oxford Beginner's Chinese Dictionary (Paperback)
The book teaches you about radicals in the chinese characters and the way to find words via the radicals - It shows you how the radicals reappear when then have something to do with it eg. the 'water' radical reappears when in the character for lake, one for sea, one for sweat etc... It is a brilliant dictionary with pages for Phrases -phrases/sentences already written out for you, it teaches you about whether certain words are modifiers or stative verbs. How to recognize measure words, adjectives. It also has a nice list for you of Chinese words you Must know. I thought i was just buying a dictionary but all the other things thrown in with the book as well make it a book that you definitely must have by your side if you are learning Chinese.
I'd also recommend Write Chinese with Betty - someone else recommended it on Amazon so i bought it and that was a great book as well.
