    Love love love this book! Why it isn't the best for learning tones and pronunciation (the audio and links help best with that) it contains some pretty good starting info for getting your feet wet. I am looking more for something that will get into the writing/reading Chinese as well as speaking it though. So far I have yet to find an all in one guide for Chinese as a whole, but not having time to take a Chinese class with my other classes... this does a good job! 再见! Love love love this book!

    I have always seen these "dummies" books and laughed at them. Then I finally read one...so great! They are full of helpful information and they are entertaining at the same time.

    Vale para aprender a decir algunas frases útiles en chino si necesitas desenvolverte mínimamente en ese idioma. No vas a aprender el idioma con este libro, de hecho, no te enseña a leer ni escribir siguiera; pero está bien porque cumple su propósito, que creo que es el enunciado en la primera frase. Aunque le criticaría que el primer capítulo es confuso porque mete mucha información de golpe y sin ejemplos ni una buena explicación. Mejor no se hubieran metido a intentar dar explicaciones gramatic Vale para aprender a decir algunas frases útiles en chino si necesitas desenvolverte mínimamente en ese idioma. No vas a aprender el idioma con este libro, de hecho, no te enseña a leer ni escribir siguiera; pero está bien porque cumple su propósito, que creo que es el enunciado en la primera frase. Aunque le criticaría que el primer capítulo es confuso porque mete mucha información de golpe y sin ejemplos ni una buena explicación. Mejor no se hubieran metido a intentar dar explicaciones gramaticales si luego sólo iban a decir una frase al respecto y no enseñar nada realmente, porque sólo sirve para que te satures de información sin aprender realmente. Y también decir que me ha molestado el imperialismo chino que destila el libro. Me explico: no existe el idioma chino. El chino es una macrolengua. Lo que normalmente se conoce por chino y se enseña en este libro es en realidad mandarín, que es la lengua mayoritaria de China y la única oficial porque es una dictadura, pero hay muchas otras lenguas y se agrupan todas como chino (cantonés, taiwanés, etcétera) por criterios políticos: la dictadura no quiere reconocer que se habla más de una lengua en su país porque se podría usar como un argumento separatista por las regiones donde justamente se concentran esos otros idiomas. Y este libro le sigue el juego diciendo que el taiwanés no es un idioma, sino un dialecto del mandarín y que ambas son chino. Mira, no. Eso es como decir que sólo existe, por ejemplo, el idioma italiano y el español, el protugués, el rumano, etcétera no son más que dialectos que se pronuncian diferente y cambian palabras y estructuras oracionales. Son otras lenguas y cualquiera que sepa un poco de taiwanés o cantonés te puede decir que son muy diferentes al mandarín hasta el punto de que no hay inteligibilidad mutua (por ejemplo tienen más tonos); o sea que son incluso menos similares de lo que serían el italiano y el español, por ejemplo. Creo que el libro debería ser más respetuoso y explicar lo anterior en lugar de inducir a confusión y ayudar a mantener ideas de una dictadura.

    I've read this book in another language and I must say I found it really bad. I didn't find any structure or consistentcy which are very important when learning a new language. Pronounciation of words specified in brackets is far from the real pronounciation of those words. How do I know? I've been living in China for a while now. This book will probably make you more confused regarding Chinese. It's a waste of your money! I've read this book in another language and I must say I found it really bad.

    Lo único útil de este libro son la gran cantidad de aspectos culturales que explica, por lo demás, una completa pérdida de tiempo y dinero. A pesar de ser un manual que se centra en el chino hablado, debería contener algún caracter. Son algo esencial y más si este es tu primer contacto con el idioma. Además, faltan ejercicios para poder practicar.

    Great collection of phrases. Uses pinyin with tone marks, with phonetics, which might be helpful but not entirely accurate. For example, ong is said to be pronounced "oong", and ang is said to be like the sound in "angst", which is a problematic example, because some Americans might pronounce with it with the "æ". But if you say it like this, and not like this you should be fine. Doesn't have characters, which I guess is fine considering it's a "for Dummies" book. But if it did that'd bump it up Great collection of phrases. Uses pinyin with tone marks, with phonetics, which might be helpful but not entirely accurate.

Ultimate goal is to be familiar with these basic phrases before a trip to China.

    The context and organisation of the book are sufficient to cover brief Chinese culture and common conversations. It is a great self learning book. Thank you! I know the book focuses on speaking only. However, it would be great if we have these two added/ improved: - the "walk the talk" which is the dialogue could be better if we have Chinese characters added instead of pinyin and pronunciation only. - nowadays, advanced technology seems to not support CD, my notebook does not have CD driver anymo The context and organisation of the book are sufficient to cover brief Chinese culture and common conversations.

It would be great if we could just go to Dummies website to stream/ download the audio from there.

    Tones in the pinyin are wrong don't buy. Tones in the pinyin are wrong don't buy. I accidentally bought this book but I want to learn chinese so I thought it might be a decent reference anyway. I already know the basics of the basics and the tones in this book are often inverted or wrong. A word that should have a third tone in it has a first tone above it. If tones are so important in the chinese language which the book makes plain that they are necessary why not put the proper tones in the book? Tones in the pinyin are wrong don't buy.

    I found it incredibly helpful but I am not a pure beginner. I've been at the language for over two years (mainly listening to lessons on my drive and taking to my wife). The book has really helped elevate my understanding of pinyin and expand my vocabulary. I found it incredibly helpful but I am not a pure beginner.

    very helpful for my trip to China but once I got there, I found I really didn't need it -- just about everyone I interacted with could speak enough English that all I needed was hello and thank you...but if learning Chinese interests you, then this is a good place to start. very helpful for my trip to China but once I got there, I found I really didn't need it -- just about everyone I interacted with could speak enough English that all I needed was hello and thank you...but if learning Chinese interests you, then this is a good place to start.
