Book Description
Now learning a foreign language can be enjoyable as well as challenging, and not require a trip back to the classroom. Available in both book-only or book-and-cassette format, these Three-Month Language Courses are outstanding self-study programs designed for the individual seeking to acquire a good working knowledge of a language in a short amount of time. Devoting just over an hour daily to the course, the program provides grammar lessons, contextual conversion drills, relevant word lists, and graded exercises, giving you an immediate and practical grasp of the language. In addition, pronunciation is made easy with Hugo's unique "imitated pronunciation" system, which represents foreign sounds with English syllables. Whether you are a businessman tackling an international account, a student preparing for an adventurous holiday, or simply a lover of new languages, the Three-Month Language Course makes learning easy, satisfying, and more fun than ever before. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

simple and effective - but would be better with the tapes, September 27, 2001
Reviewer: A reader
Grammar explanations are brief, but they get the point across better than other books I've seen with more wordy explanations. The vocabulary and dialogue examples are quite relevant for everyday traveling experiences. This book won't teach you the characters.

Very accurate in pronunciation and grammar, April 12, 2001
Reviewer: A reader
Chinese in three months presents pronunciation and grammar in a much simplified manner so the beginner will have a great understanding of the language. It explains the four tones in the language thoroughly. The only problem is that it doesn't teach you how to write Chinese at all. You will speak chinese well but be totally illiterate.

The same old stuff in a new colour and volume., March 3, 2001

Reviewer: Khalil Habash (Kuwait.)

I have many courses . I found this one the eaziest and unboaring to follow ,when I studied an older print. However, one cannot do with a language like Chinese without accompanied cassettes and a Chinese Girl Friend.
