This bright and amusing book is a delightful introduction to the world's most widely spoken language. Using Mandarin Chinese (the official and best-known dialect) and simplified characters (the version of the written language used across mainland China), it encourages direct association of the Chinese word with the object to ensure effective, long-term learning. Each Chinese word is followed by an easy-to-read pronunciation guide, and at the end of the book, there is a Chinese-English list of all the words used. You can now find out how to pronounce every Chinese word in this book by listening to a native Chinese speaker. Just go to the Usborne Quicklinks Web site and type in a page number.
