    About this book

Let's Speak provides a structured and systematic approach to learning Chinese, with a special focus on speaking skills. It is developed specifically for students in a non-Chinese environment. Each lesson is thoughtfully planned such that the presentation, reinforcement and expansion of communication forms promote the gradual and secure development of Chinese language skills. Each lesson revolves around a chosen theme which provides a practical context that students can relate to.

The basic level introduces 366 words, most of which are from the Chinese Words of Different Levels and the General Outline of Chinese Words (Beijing Language and Culture University Press, 1997). An introductory section on pinyin is included to lay the groundwork for learning the language. In addition to the textbook, a teacher's book and a companion website is also available.
