If you think learning a foreign language must necessarily rhyme with tiresome work, the first volume of Chinese with Ease is here to show you a different way.
This volume of 49 lessons is the first part of a two-volume package: altogether there are 105 lessons in Chinese with Ease.
Providing you with Chinese characters and with Pinyin (the official transcription of Chinese characters), it will soon enable you to read and speak Chinese.
Do you remember how you learned to speak as a child?
Your learning of Chinese will be based on the same mechanisms, in two distinct phases:
the passive phase where you simply listen and repeat, throughout the two volumes.
the active phase starting with the second volume, when you will begin to create your own sentences.
In volume 1 of Chinese with Ease, the lively dialogues taken from everyday events in China will not only immerse you in Chinese culture, but will also familiarise you with modern Chinese vocabulary, phrases and sentences. You will only need half an hour of study each day.
Regularity and motivation are the keys to your success!
