BASIC WRITTEN CHINESE

This is a beginning-level course in written Chinese that employs a revolutionary new method designed to have you quickly reading and writing simple, connected Chinese sentences.
Along with its sister book "Basic Spoken Chinese" and their accompanying workbooks, "Basic Written Chinese" offers a complete introductory course to the Chinese language. As a native English speaker, working hard to learn Chinese is not enough; you have to work smart in order to learn this very different language efficiently. No matter why you've chosen to learn Chinese--for business, travel, cultural studies or another goal--the "Basic Chinese" approach of two separate but integrated tracts in spoken and written Chinese will help you learn this language most efficiently and successfully.
"Basic Written Chinese" is designed so it can be used in a class with an instructor or by independent learners working on their own."Basic Written Chinese" systematically introduces 288 of the highest frequency characters (in both their simplified and traditional forms) and over 700 common words written with them in context in sentences and a variety of reading passages to help you master basic Chinese reading and writing.The structure of each new character is explained in detail to make the learning of characters easier, and "look-alike" characters are compared and contrasted.Many lessons include character differentiation drills and some lessons include realia such as name cards, street signs, or email messages.Each lesson introduces 6 new characters and a number of words that are written using them. By dividing the leaning into small tasks, you maintain a sense of accomplishment rather than getting bogged down.You'll experience both printed and handwritten forms of characters, as well as several different printed fonts.Available separately, "Basic Written Chinese Practice Essentials" is the companion workbook for "Basic Written Chinese." This practical guide includes a broad range of drills and exercises designed to dramatically enhance your proficiency in reading and writing Chinese. While designed for use with the companion textbook, it can be used together with any Chinese textbook or teaching program to hone your Chinese reading and writing language skills.
