Excellent reference book,

This review is from: Basic Chinese: A Grammar and Workbook (Grammar Workbooks) (Paperback)
I have used this book a great deal and found the information, vocab. and grammar to be really useful. The book pre-supposes a good knowledge of spoken Chinese, so although called 'Basic Chinese' it is not for a beginner. The book is suited to someone who already has a good knowledge of the spoken and written language. One issue I have with the book is the frequent inaccurate translations which can be misleading; otherwise excellent.
