    1. This is a good book on Chinese, especially when used together with it's companion book 'Character text for Colloquial Chinese' by Tung & Pollard. The former book is written entirely in pinyin, the latter book in Chinese script. You can either use them at the same time or use the character book after finishing the colloquial book. [note that the character book is offered in two versions: simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese]As this book is written in romanization the focus is on mastering [...]

    2. I really like this, as it gives clear explanations of the grammar and gives the grammar in nicely sized chunks. I should mention that I have studied only the first 3 chapters, which is all I needed for my class. This means I have learned, besides the grammar, about 75 characters. It is truly a blast, a great feeling of accomplishment, to speak Mandarin to native speakers and write sentences in Chinese!I will continue to use this.
