To study Traditional Chinese by yourself or with a teacher. Apr 18, 2008
Thanks to the brilliant idea of this site's " search inside " the books, I could decide to buy both the volumes - 1 and 2 -for, at the time I was studying alone ( it is not easy to find a taiwanese teacher here). But this year I found a taiwanese school ( ! ) and showed this book to the teachers, who showed their books from Taiwan: they use the same method: first the complete lesson - text and exercises -in Pinyin, followed by the same complete lesson in chinese characters. Intrigued, I asked why didn't they put the Pinyin altogheter the chinese, and they explained that this is product of a long, long experience: with the Pinyin at the side of the ideogram, one becomes lazy and that is bad for memorizing the strokes, etc. So, if you do have first the pronunciation ( pinyin ) and have to search it some pages ahead, you, little by little, get acquainted with the chinese strokes and so don't forget it. In a few lessons it prooved to be right: now I am reading straight from the chinese text. I strongly recommend them for those that study chinese language - in traditional characters. There is also a good cd to help. It is a course of 22 lessons, plus the grammar, plus the exercises. The reason it has ( togheter ) almost 800 pages! A must. Difficult to find. Another point to this site!
