Reviews - What do customers think about A Student Handbook for Chinese Function Words?

flip and find words in a snap  Apr 24, 2006
This book is definitely user friendly. Each word is listed in chinese character, pinyin pronounciation guide and part of speech identification followed by 2 or more sentences. I found the sentences to be interesting and useful. Since the sentences are variable from simple to complex in their grammatical structure, they give a fair view of the uses of the words in this volume.

Additionally, I found the layout of the entries to be well designed and easy to find. An excellent addition to any serious or casual Chinese Language learner's reference collection.
