    Book Description 'This volume addresses a very timely and important topic, and provides both broad and in-depth coverage of a number of large-scale English tests in China, including Hong Kong and Taiwan, and about the Chinese learner.' – Lyle F.

"Mandarin Chinese 1: Chinese for Intermediate Learners" is the first course of the MOOC specialization "Learn Intermediate Mandarin Chinese" created by /5(19).

    Chinese and English have very little in common. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine two more completely different languages. Chinese is a tonal language that has no alphabet and very simple. Learning Chinese (fi rst year) and the forthcoming compan-ion volume (second year) cover approximately class hours. 3.

    To learn Chinese, one has to read many textbooks, over long periods of time. As a beginner, you don't want to waste time, so you want the best text book. From my experience, if you don't want to waste time, you must start sooner rather than later and plan to read pretty much all the textbooks you come across.
