As a large country, China has one of the most diverse geography, culture, traditions and languages. With the country’s global rise comes the understandable interest of many to understand more about the rich Chinese culture, and there is no better way to start this journey than to learn the language. Author Frank Lee provides just that in his new book, “Practical Mandarin Conversation” (published by Xlibris AU).
This book contains 20 chapters which focus on the teaching and learning materials of Chinese language and culture. Each Chinese character is marked with Chinese Pinyin (including four tones) in order to facilitate the readers in reading. All contents focus on introducing the Chinese culture, including its natural and humanistic landscape. Each topic is made up mainly of practical and simple sentences. The last topic is more comprehensive and is a brief introduction of Chinese culture; it is especially helpful for foreign readers.
An excerpt from the book:
