  1. John Morrison

    Bit verbose

  2. Discipline_is_within

    Came in ok condition

  3. Keith W

    A comprehensive approach
    A very thorough examination of the building blocks of Simplified Mandarin. From tones and proper pronunciation to proper cultural expectations of differing tones of the same words . After the first chapter of basics , the many chapters have different topics that can be used without having to work your way through each chapter . A good investment in language study

  4. Shan Rohingwe Yeti

    I’m a For Dummies Fan
    My standard preference in language learning supplements is the For Dummies brand because it is simplified to assist learning, unlike some professors who make it overly competitive to learn anything.
