irrespective of level, setting out the complexities of the language in
short, readable sections.

It is ideal either for independent study or for students in schools,
colleges, universities and adult classes of all types.

Features include:
* A new chapter on paragraph development
* Chinese characters, as well as the pinyin Romanization, alongside all
examples
*  Literal and colloquial translations in English to illustrate language points
