The Most Basic Chinese - All You Need to Know to Get By: The quickest and easiest survival Chinese!
The Most Basic Chinese teaches all the Mandarin you need to survive, enabling you to learn everything you need simply and effortlessly. To begin, lets get one thing straight - it is extremely easy to learn all the Basic Chinese you will need if you are travelling to or intending to live in China. This booklet gives you all of that language and is presented in a simple way. It can be easily studied on the plane journey over or any other time, and is entirely sufficient to be able to get by once you are there. So dont be fooled booklet length - once you have mastered this small amount of Basic Chinese, you will have reached the same level as thousands of people who have lived, worked and survived in China for years. It begins with the very simple (10 most useful phrases for a newcomer), then builds on this in easy stages to demonstrate how easy it is to speak Basic Chinese as well as give you the language and knowledge to do so. Due to requests from a number of readers, I have now had a native speaker update all the Chinese to include the tone markings, and there is an extra chapter included to describe them. With this booklet, you will already have picked up a great deal of the language and grammar as well as a great sense of how easy it is. You will also find The Most Basic Chinese an invaluable tool to keep with you for its simple presentation of the language needed for various situations - e.g. in a taxi, restaurant, bar or shop. Good luck and safe travels! NB: The "Chinese" referred to in this book is Mandarin or Standard Chinese, understood by most Chinese people.
