Excellent quality. I use them in the gym and they don't fall out. They were very easy to connect to my phone. Gold standard of bass and sound. Love them!

First Step: An Elementary Reader for Modern Chinese (The Princeton Language Program: Modern Chinese)
First Step: An Elementary Reader for Modern Chinese (The Princeton Language Program: Modern Chinese)
by Chih-p'ing Chou
Edition: Paperback
Price: £27.69

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Chinese self teaching books available, 27 Jun. 2014

I must strongly recommend this book to anyone wishing to learn Mandarin - it's worth 20 of my other books all in one. It is concise, clear and detailed. The only complaint is that there aren't any exercises to practise the new structures and vocabulary. The pace is remarkably quick but incredibly natural. This book is simply amazing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was hoping for, 3 Jan. 2010
I have been a fan of the authors' work for sometime now, particularly their version of Michel Thomas' method (Check out the Arabic version they did, it is excellent). This book is a bit airy-fairy and I can't get into it. It isn't really what I wanted; somewhere to bring together my own airy-fairy Arabic that I have picked up over the last 10 years. I wanted a book to go over the Egyptian colloquial arabic and concentrate on things that I would NEED should I go there. This is half that, but not engaging or snappy enough to hold my audience very long and it inevitably goes back on the shelf after half an hour. Disappointing but might suit some.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect language book, 3 Jan. 2010
Deeply impressed with the smooth, beautifully presented and clear chapters progressing quickly but logically from the alphabet to greetings and finishing off with job interviews. It isn't one of those language books that tries to get you to translate sentences like, "This sequence is not logical" or "My greeting card is a promotional copy" in chapter 2. It goes sequentially through topics of high interest and offers clear and concise explanations of the grammar rules introduced. I honestly wish all language instruction books could be this logical and simply presented. Nice and comedic illustrations and a beautiful front cover top this off. Like I said, a perfect language book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Small print but snappy..., 3 Jan. 2010
This is a decent resource for my classroom teaching; it is comprehensive, informative and colourful. It will be difficult for my students that haven't learnt the Cyrillic script confidently yet though, and this is one problem. I believe it would be better if it had some form of basic transliteration. It is entirely grammar based and focuses little on vocab, apart from months of the year and days of the week. It is smaller than I had anticipated, around the size of my laptop when fully closed up. One other issue is that, because it is double sided it doesn't function fully as a wall mount as it would require being turned over to see the other side. All in all however, it is both useful and decorative, a nice classroom resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 20 July 2002
This book was my first taste of Turkish, but after searching for others of the same type it appears I have started at the top and will have to work my way down, because this book is rated so highly by other people!
Basically, this book provides a working knowledge of Turkish and un-mystifies this un-european, but still "european" language. Unlike some other books I have, it actually does give you what you need to know, and when you need to know it, for example it begins with a comprehensive pronunciation aid, teaching you to read Turkish (which is quite easy actually), and then gives you everyday, useful phrases, like 'hello';'goodbye';'thanks';good morning' etc,... something that some books don't bother with it seems. Occasionally I see books that teach you "my calculator is malfunctioning" before "how are you", but not here, thank God!
New grammar points are explained clearly and plenty of examples are given to support them. There is good, useful vocabulary, and you'll learn things in order of sensibility, learning to talk about what you did yesterday before reading newspaper articles about the stock exchange.
Overall a well constructed, comprehensive guide to this beautiful sounding eastern-western language, plenty of stuff here, more than enough if you are just intending on travelling there for a while, to work, or for a 2 week holiday.
Çok Guzel!
