'Very well structured and clearly explained' - Dr Kan Qian, The Open University, UK

Basic Chinese introduces the essentials of Chinese syntax. Each of the twenty-five units deals with a particular grammatical point and provides associated exercises. Features include:

- a clear, accessible format

- many useful language examples

- jargon-free explanations of grammar

- ample drills and exercises

- a full key to exercises.

All Chinese entries are presented in both Pinyin romanization and Chinese characters, and are accompanied, in most cases, by English translations to facilitate self-tuition as well as classroom teaching in both spoken and written Chinese.

Basic Chinese is designed for students new to the language. Together with its sister volume, Intermediate Chinese, it forms a compendium of the essentials of Chinese syntax.
