The active phase of your study begins with this second volume of Chinese with Ease.
These 56 lessons will allow you to improve your Mandarin Chinese. You will not only widen your knowledge of the language but you will also be able to evaluate your progress, as you become increasingly able to make the best use of what you have learned. Be confident and enjoy learning Chinese with the lively dialogues from day-to-day Chinese life.
As you were told in the first volume, when you have completed your study of Chinese with Ease, you will have reached a good level of Chinese, and command a wide vocabulary for use in all sorts of practical and useful phrases. You will be in possession of the basic tools of Chinese, as summarised in the appendices at the end of the book. They will be a useful reference if you wish to pursue your learning and discovery of this beautiful language.
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.
