Season 1 covers pinyin, the four tones and writing system using Simplified Chinese characters, common words, phrases and typical conversations. In no time you?ll be able to talk about yourself, your family, your friends, your job, your home, your dogs and cats.
If Season 2 wasn't included in the book, you wouldn't be able to tell people you can speak Chinese, you like to play basketball, or you want to eat beef fried rice.
