It can be used alongside (or after, or even before) a course in the Chinese language. All characters are simplified (as in mainland China) but traditional characters are also given, when available. Key features: Specially designed pictures and stories are used in a structured way to make the learning process more enjoyable and effective, reducing the need for rote learning to the absolute minimum. The emphasis throughout is on learning and remembering the meanings and pronunciations of the characters. Tips are also included on learning techniques and how to avoid common problems. Characters are introduced in a logical sequence, which also gives priority to learning the most common characters first. Modern simplified characters are used, with pronunciations given in pinyin. Key information is given for each character, including radical, stroke–count, traditional form, compounds, and guidance on writing the character. This is a practical guide with a clear, concise and appealing layout, and it is well–indexed with easy look–up methods. The 800 Chinese characters and 1,033 compounds specified for the original HSK Level A proficiency test are covered.

Please Note: Amazon's "Look Inside!" only shows the introductory pages by default - but you can see a random selection of the FULL COLOR Chinese pages by clicking "Surprise Me!". Thanks! If you only learn the first 100 Chinese characters in this book, you'll be able to recognize more than 50% of all commonly printed Chinese text! But if you learn all 1,000 characters, you'll be able to recognize over 95% of all printed text. Chinese characters are printed in black & white on one page and then again in color on the next facing page, along with the Pinyin and a very brief English definition for each character. You can test yourself by flipping from the black & white page to the color page, memorizing each character's tone color and it's Pinyin name. Eventually, by recalling the character's color, you'll automatically know it's correct tone. It's very easy to remember which color represents which tone: 1. RED High Alert (High tone) 2. ORANGE Rising Sun (Rising tone) 3. GREEN Green Valley (Down/Up) 4. BLUE Deep Blue Sea (Down) 5. BLACK Neutral (Neutral Tone) The characters are presented in the order of most frequently used (first) to least frequently used. Try memorizing the characters before worrying about their English definition(s). Later, after learning to recognize the character, it's tone color and it's Pinyin name, then you can start to add the various English definitions. Again... by memorizing the tone colors, you'll find that when you read regular black Chinese text, you'll be able to easily recall (visualize) the color of each character, hence know it's correct tone. This book is interleaved with blank pages so that the printed pages are all facing the same way up thus allowing you to conveniently flip "in-situ" between black text and color/pinyin. You could maybe use those blank pages for study notes. English definitions are very short and of course there's many definitions for the same word that cannot be shown. This book is definitely not a dictionary! It's simply a character learning aid.
