Part of the widely-used and highly acclaimed Kubler series, The Basic Chinese and Intermediate Chinese books provide separate but integrated tracks to help you learn to read, write and speak Chinese efficiently, at your own pace. Some students and teachers wish to emphasize speaking ability first, whereas others want to focus on learning to read and write Chinese at the same time. These Chinese language study books allow you the flexibility to acquire the spoken language and the written language with the method that best fits your needs. With the internationally-recognized Kubler system and accompanying CD-ROM, you will:
Learn to use 288 high-frequency Chinese characters, and over 700 popular words written with them
Find yourself quickly reading and writing sentences with the correct Chinese grammar
Be taught both simplified and traditional characters; you may choose to learn one or both
Recognize a variety of fonts in both typeset and handwritten styles, to prepare you to use Chinese in many different contexts-from reading signs and newspapers, to computers and mobile phone texts
Listen to hours of native-speaker recordings on the enclosed CD-ROM, and have access to practice sheets and printable flashcards
Intermediate Written Chinese Practice Essentials stands out among Chinese books and textbooks for its dynamic study system and practical exercises, which will assist you in learning Chinese quickly and comfortably.
