Book Description
The Practical Chinese Reader is a comprehensive introductory Mandarin Chinese language textbook series for use in courses at secondary schools or universities. The series follows two students as they first study Chinese in their own country, and then go to China to participate in a foreign exchange program there. The two-volume beginning level consists of 50 lessons and introduces a vocabulary of 1,000 basic words. For simplified character texts for Books 1 and 2, two editions are available. The content is identical, but the paper and printing quality of the Hong Kong edition is better than that of the Beijing edition. Books 3 through 6 are available only in simplified characters. Books 3 and 4 consist of 30 lessons covering some 2,000 words, while Books 5 and 6 consist of 30 lessons covering approximately 3,000 words. Texts in books 5 and 6 are original essays and literary works in Chinese.

pratical chinese reader - complex characters, March 26, 2000
Reviewer: A reader
this book is an excellent book if you want to learn complex chinese characters. these are the types of characters used in taiwan (not china) today. with a foundation with the complex characters you can move on to simplified characters. (there is also a simplified character version). if you can get the tapes that accompany this series from the publisher that would be a great help.

the first book teaches very useful words. the second book in the series is not as practical though. if you want to practice the grammer you should get the work book also.
