The Rainbow Bridge Graded Chinese Reader Series
The Rainbow Bridge Graded Chinese Reader Series is geared to students who learn Chinese as a foreign language, with an aim to improve their reading abilities. With the thoughtful matching of text with illustrations, each volume of this series is graded with a specific HSK/CEFR proficiency level and its own range of vocabulary. For each of the 7 levels, new words used are no more than 20% of the vocabulary amount as specified in the corresponding HSK and CEFR level. Featuring a wide range of stories from Chinese mythology, legends, folklore, literary classics, and historical tales, this series can motivate students to learn Chinese with its clear structure and content. Each volume starts with a bilingual introduction to the main characters, followed by the story and new vocabulary, an English translation, reading comprehension questions, and a cloze test. This series is suitable for beginners up to level 6 of the HSK and CEFR level.

Collins Mandarin Chinese Dictionary
Ideal for learners of Chinese or English, from beginner up to university level, this dictionary is a comprehensive and up-to-date collection of words, phrases, and example sentences. For each Chinese headword (both simplified and traditional Chinese characters), Pinyin (Romanised alphabetic spelling) is offered with translations, phrases and example sentences. Learners will find the radical index and the appendices particularly useful. The appendices include vocabulary about numbers, time, and dates, as well as commonly-used expressions for greeting, telephone conversations, and business correspondence. This is a handy tool that learners can never miss.
