Interactions I and II review, August 13, 2004
Interactions I and II provide basic knowledge in Mandarin Chinese.
The learning activities are decent, but I would recommend purchasing a
text that contains an audio version of the text. One such example is A
New China. One can learn how to read and write Chinese without audio,
but pronunciation will still be very poor. Also, I do believe that this
book was published in Taiwan. Some of the characters are a bit different
than those from mainland China. Despite these shortcomings, Interactions
I and II will provide a starting point for those interested in Mandarin.
But for a few dollars more, one could purchase an even better beginning.
