This work aims to take users from scratch to having a solid base in the language within six months, and to feel comfortable in as little as three months. In only half an hour a day users will move ahead naturally until they are at ease with all the basic structures needed for communication and become familiar with the basic words and grammar. The method comprises two phases: the passive phase, in which users simply repeat what they hear and read, and the active phase, in which users begin to create sentences and imagine themselves in a variety of everyday situations.
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 Mandarin Chinese.
