Reviews - What do customers think about 1,000 Mandarin Chinese Words (Berlitz Kids)?
Nice for beginners, but better as a supplement Feb 10, 2010
This book teaches vocabulary in a theme-oriented manner, e.g. family members, food, etc. The large and colorful pages make it attractive to children. The pages are "busy" - lots of things to see and learn - that it almost seems like a seek-and-find sort of book. But it doesn't really teach conversation, so it seems to be better when used as an adjunct to a more formal language learning program.
This is a good book! Nov 9, 2009
This is a good book for some children and experienced learners of Chinese.

Great Beginners aid to for Mandarin Students Nov 7, 2009
The book is a great aid in learning Mandarin. Not entirely by itself but together with your good general dictionary and other texts etc for the self-learning student, in my opinion and experience based upon my self instruction and success in a conversational level with German and Russian. I found that one could not have enough material for the task! There is always a point where, a point in one text etc becomes clearer with another source! And with the Internet, there is a wealth of downloadable material for the self-learner. However, I recommend this book- " A picture is worth....", etc!
Colorful and easy to read. Oct 5, 2009
This book is very good. It is in color. A big plus. The words are written in simplified Chinese characters, pinyin, and English. Must have book.
1000 Chinese Words Sep 13, 2009
I ordered the 1000 Mandarin Chinese Words and was very pleased with the book. It was made of strong paper and would be able to handle rough handling by children. I thought it was easy to read and understand (of course I am not a child, but I thought a child would be able to understand the contents well).
I am quite pleased with the contect of the book and how well it is made.
