Chinese demystified : hard stuff made easy
Claudia Ross (2011)
A handbook, with exercises, for learners of Chinese, that in 21 chapters aims to unravel and explain some of the features of the language that can make it seem complex and unattainable.
Areas covered include pronunciation, tones, characters, sentence structure, conversational expressions, question forms, talking about time and many others.
Useful to use alongside a self-study or taught class to find out more about how the language works and to practice producing correct forms of written and spoken Chinese.
