    About this book

This book contains all the necessary words and phrases for speaking Mandarin Chinese in any setting. Perfect for students, tourists, or business people learning Mandarin or traveling to China or Taiwan, it also contains a beginner guide to the Mandarin language, allowing for a deeper understanding of Chinese than a typical Mandarin phrasebook or Chinese dictionary. The book is broken into four primary sections: Common Chinese Expressions and Key Words, Essential Chinese Communication Tools, Chinese Travel Vocabulary, and making your own sentences. All Chinese words and phrases are written in the Romanized form (pinyin) as well phonetically, making pronouncing Chinese a breeze. For example, the word for 'reservation,' yuding is also written as yuu-deeng. Authentic Chinese characters are also included so that in the case of difficulties the book can be shown to a native Mandarin-speaker.

Key features of Survival Chinese include:
Hundreds of useful Chinese words and expressions.
An A-Z index which allows the book to function as an English to Chinese dictionary.
Romanized forms, phonetic spellings, and Chinese Characters (Hanzi) for all words and phrases.
A concise background and history of the Chinese language.
A complete guide to Chinese pronunciations.
A concise guide to using Chinese tones.
A brief introduction to Chinese grammar.
