About the Book

Intermediate Chinese is the ideal reference and practice book for students with some knowledge of the language. Each of the 25 units deals with a particular grammatical point and provides associated exercises. Features include:

  • clear, accessible format
  • many useful language examples
  • jargon-free grammar explanations
  • sample drills and exercises with full answer key.

All Chinese entries are presented in both pinyin romanisation and Chinese characters, and are accompanied, in most cases, by English translations to facilitate self-tuition in both the spoken and the written language. This new edition also includes a glossary of vocabulary and aglossary of grammatical terms.

Intermediate Chinese reviews the principal elements presented in its sister volume, Basic Chinese, and introduces more complicated structures. The two books form a compendium of the essentials of Chinese grammar.

About the Series

Grammar Workbooks

These titles combine explanation with exercise work. The Basic Grammar Workbooks are for learners starting at elementary level. Intermediate Grammar Workbooks follow on from these and are for learners who have achieved basic proficiency and wish to progress to more complex language. Each combines clear, concise grammar explanations with communicatively oriented exercises to help build confidence and fluency.
Suitable for independent learners and students on taught courses, the Basic and Intermediate volumes together form a structured course of the essentials of each language's grammar.

All Grammar Workbooks are available as inspection copies.
