    Book details


Chinese Link, 2e provides a practical, learner-centered and enjoyable language and cultural learning experience for beginning students of Chinese, as well as an efficient and comprehensive teaching resource for instructors.

 

This best-selling text takes care to introduce and explain grammar points clearly and systematically, yet not in a fashion that would be overwhelming to beginners. In keeping with the communicative focus of the text, grammar points are related to communicative task-oriented content. The textbook presents both traditional (complex) and simplified versions of Chinese characters, since learners will encounter both forms during their course of study or in travel abroad.  Photographs and drawings make the text vivid and eye-catching, and to provide visual cues to aid in communicative exercises and activities. And the Video Program to accompany the “Language in Use” sections enhances the in-text dialogues by presenting them in authentic settings.

    As for Volume 1 part 1, this book is the logical continuation of one of the best language methods I have come across. Not only it does teach examples from "real life" using the vocabulary which is summarized very well at the beginning of each chapter, but it also has a section where there is a story told in characters only and the pinyin(pronunciation system) is written underneath in a separate section. Speaking of this section, I really appreciate it, since it does expose you to the actual chinese characters written without the pinyin written directly under, but in a a great challenge to see how much you've learnt so far.Another great feature of the simplified character version is that it does include anyways the traditional characters of the words one learns, so if you can learn both. This is also excellent since most "china towns", in the world, as well as the japanese language,use traditional characters, so the learner is not completely "lost in translation" when seeing a traditional version of the character.Another blessing of these books (part 1 and 2) are the summaries of grammar, vocabulary, characters, etc, which saves you time in looking for something instead of scouring the whole book for finding something.One little criticism is that the "pinyin learning section" is to be done with the CD, which is not always available, so we have to move directly to the character section,which I don't personally mind, but pinyin being the key to tones and pronunciation, it could be a good idea, perhaps in future editions, to include the CD with the book (of course boosting a bit the price, which I find already a bit expensive, but worth the buy!)and thus avoid this kind of problem.Overall,I fully recommend this method!!

    This is a pretty good resource for Chinese learning, but be aware that it does not teach you anything about the culture and why some words are not used anymore due to their changed meanings. This book teaches you how to talk like a robot, which is a good way to start. Anyway, I recommend this to beginners, but do a little history reading about China before you simply go over there calling people names!!!

    PURPOSE: I bought this book for my Beginner's Chinese class. We finished all 11 chapters in one semester.OVERALL THOUGHTS: I found it to be very helpful and easy to power through.CONS:>In each chapter, there is a set of main vocab as well as supplementary vocab. I found that some supplementary vocab from the earlier chapters were repeated in the later chapters as the main set of vocab.>At the back of the book is a chinese->english dictionary and vice versa. However, I feel that the dictionary could be more extensive as they were missing some vocabulary that was used in the book.PROS:>You learn a lot of Chinese surnames in this textbook.>A lot of helpful conversations are littered throughout the book.>There are also a few chapter reviews.> At the end of each chapter, there are sections about Chinese culture.>Prior to chapter one, there is a brief section on pinyin.

    This product is great for teaching a student Mandarin Chinese grammar and culture.The vocabulary is very good too; however, it's a limited dictionary so you will need to buy a separate dictionary. The e-book is also great which can be found at mychineselab.com You can access audio and video resources there. I will buy Sue-mei Wu's higher level books.

    This book is pretty darn good for learning Chinese characters. However, it does seem to lack a bit in learning how to use those characters to correctly form sentences. If you goal is simply to learn how to read Chinese, then this book is great. If you are wanting to learn how to write grammatically correct sentences, you will need a little extra help.

    Exactly what I needed for my Chinese 101 class.

    sorta helps with writing characters

  • By Adam Abgott on October 2, 2013

    I purchased this book for my Elementary Chinese 1 class for this fall. The book is the right one for the class and has been useful so far. I gave it four stars because it didn't include the access code to use the online part of the book. If it had, I would have given it five stars.
