Book Reviews:

"The most obvious difference between this Student's Book and those in the preceding level (Basic Level) of the series is the removal of the pinyin 'crutch'. You find out very quickly just how much of the character tones and pronunciations you have retained! Each chapter starts off with an invitation to write something regarding the topic about to be discussed and more standard sentence patterns are introduced. The writing - though painful (!) - is a great way to try and hone your ability to form sentences within the confines of your existing vocabulary, knowing full well there are likely far more efficient sentences that could probably express the same thought. However this is where the course has immediate practical value even for the relative newcomer. Expanded vocabulary is delivered in bite-sized chunks likewise built around everyday topics that have immediate applicability. Keep reviewing the previous books in the series to retain the foundation and push on!"
