Product Description

Learn Chinese with Mike Absolute Beginner Activity Book Seasons 1 & 2

Addictive learning

Mike Laoshi (Teacher Mike) will astound you with his unparalleled ability to make learning Chinese fun and easy. Be warned, his teaching style is highly addictive, so if you have a family, career or social life, you may want to put those on hold for a little while.

Why Chinese with Mike?

Chinese with Mike is 100% new and breaks with traditional Chinese curricula. Mike's humour, mixed with his logical, step-by-step approach shields learners from the unnecessary complexities of Chinese. Through a blend of 60 short, highly addictive video lessons on DVD, a Coursebook and audio, you'll acquire essential Chinese with confidence. More importantly, you get a little one-on-one time with Mike, as he makes learning Chinese ridiculously easy-and fun!

What will I learn?

Seasons 1&2 is a solid foundation course that teaches you how to speak Chinese and also understand how the language fits together.

Season 1 This covers pinyin, the four tones and writing system, common words, phrases and typical conversations. In no time you'll be able to talk about yourself, your family, your friends, your job, your home, your dogs and cats.

Season 2 If Season 2 wasn't included in the book, you wouldn't be able to tell people you can speak Chinese, you like to play basketball, or you want to eat beef fried rice. More importantly, you wouldn't even know how to ask permission to use the bathroom! Without Season 2 you wouldn't get very far in life.

The curriculum has logical links that shield beginners from the unnecessary complexities of Chinese grammar while providing a solid understanding of how the language is constructed. It is definitely new, and it definitely works.
