Great book for learning Mandarin Chines at bargain May 15, 2014
Yale University Institute of Far Eastern Languages has put together a quality book that is an improvement over its' first book. Yale's program has been used to teach US Military, missionaries, and countless others. It is definitely a great book to begin with.without being bogged down with writing Chinese characters. It creates a good foundation. for spoken Chinese Mandarin. I have used Yale books to teach classes in Mandarin since 1998.
