Intensive Spoken Chinese

This set of courses is specially designed with brand – new approaches for foreign students beginning to learn Chinese. Independent from one another yet integrated into a whole, there are three courses in this set: Intensive Spoken Chinese, The most Common Chinese Radicals, and Rapid Literacy in Chinese. Beginning with Pinyin only, instead of dealing with both pronunciation and character recognition, students will find the Spoken Chinese course easy to master, and will be able to communicate in Chinese in no time. The concentrated training in character learning will enable the student to enter into the reading stage in an unprecedentedly short time and taste the satisfaction and enjoyment of fluent comprehension. In the radicals book, the students will be attracted by the rich content of culture and art embodied in Chinese characters, which, instead of being the stumbling blocks they have often been considered, become magnets drawing them step by step to the innermost charm of the Chinese language.

I went through this book twice, with different teachers (private tuition, with 3 one-hour lessons per week). The first time I was not serious, and forgot almost everything a week after the relevant content. The second time, I entered all of the sentences and vocabulary in Anki, so can maintain it even now, a year later. The book therefore gave me a firm foundation in spoke Chinese, but I think that I could have done as well (or better) with other books.
