Your one-stop guide to mastering the basics of Chinese

Can one book have all you need to communicate confidently in a new language? Yes--and that book is Chinese Verbs & Essentials of Grammar. It offers a solid foundation of major verbal and grammatical concepts of the language.

Each unit is devoted to a single topic, so you can find what you need and get concentrated instruction immediately. Concise yet thorough, the explanations are supported by numerous examples to help you master each concept.

This book gives you:

  • An excellent introduction to the basics of Chinese (if you are a beginner) or a quick, thorough refresher (if you already have experience with the language)
  • Essential information on the Chinese language--its history, varieties, tonal features, character writing system, and lean grammatical structure
