This continuation of Beginner's Chinese allows users with previous knowledge of Mandarin Chinese to expand their knowledge of the language and speaking ability. Each lesson uses dialogue and new vocabulary to illustrate common grammatical patterns. At the end of each chapter, exercises test and reinforce the reader's newly acquired skills. The topics covered include the conditional, progressive action, and duration & time markers. Also included is a glossary of vocabulary words with a section devoted to the words learned in Beginner's Chinese. This popular instruction guide now comes with an enclosed audio CD covering each lesson.
