Learn Chinese from 37 Characters (Paperback) (Yong Chun Zhong)
About this item
Dr Zhong has invented a new and fun way to learn how to pronounce all Chinese characters without using any alien phonetic symbols such as pinyin.
Using conversations, proverbs, songs and stories as examples, Dr Zhong also demonstrates how easily to master the 37 Chinese characters used as the phonetic notation in this book while providing a practical learning strategy to satisfy your individual learning need.
Drawing from his own experiences in teaching and speaking bilingually, Dr Zhong makes learning this popular but complex language much easier than using conventional methods and allows the learner to independently explore the intrinsic harmony of the Chinese language.
