I'm using this book as a guide in a college level independent study course on Chinese grammar. It is similar to the excellent "comprehensive" version by the same author, but divided into basic and intermediate level topics (separate volumes). The "workbook" aspect is very useful for testing your understanding, and establishing a standard if you're working with a teacher, tutor, mentor, etc.. I would recommend this, along with the second volume in the set, as the best starting point for anyone interested in this topic.
  • Datrim
I love this book! It has been a key resource in learning Chinese, a word of caution, this book is not for someone just starting out. You need a basic understanding of charters, in my option.
  • Sarin
This is a grammar, not an instructional course, so it should be used as a supplement to other materials for language instruction. At minimum you will need a separate lesson course and dictionary. As such, it does a decent job of grammar exposition. It does a particularly good job making fine semantic distinctions, the idomatic differences between ' and ' for "two", for example. It contains plenty of exercises to practice and test yourself. Its section on measure words is the only clear explanation I have seen of the thinking habits that underlie them. At last, a treatment of measure words that doesn't resort a list ending in "etc". Other books might say "' for hills, large buildings, etc.". Hills, large buildings, and *what* else? This book gives the thinking: ' conveys the imposing-ness of such things.

It is not organized to be a reference. Though conjugation and declension tables are not needed (Chinese doesn't decline or conjugate), my perfect grammatica would have tablular summaries of the material in an appendix for quick look-up. The second edition has added an index, which should help.

If your core study material has a good treatment of grammar, you can probably get by without this book. Chinese grammar is not very complicated. Students on a budget may be better served buying vocabulary aids.

'Update: Amazon apparently can't display Chinese in reviews anymore. That's ' er4 and ' liang3 for "two" and ' zuo4 for the measure word example.)

The pinyin on the kindle version only does not specify all the tones. Just the rising and falling tones and not the first and third tones. It does have the characters though.
  • Simple fellow
i used it when tutoring my adult students and its been very useful. will definitely recommend this for friends. thanks.

This review is specifically about the digitalization of "basic chinese" into the kindle edition. In order to be fair to the authors, please refer to other reviews if you want to know more about the quality of the contents.

Chinese characters can be quite complicated little pieces of drawing. They often contain more than 10-15 strokes. Unfortunately, in the kindle edition of "basic chinese", chinese characters are pictures, scanned with a very low resolution, which make it very hard, or impossible, to decifer them. On top of that most kindle applications (including the kindle itself) don't allow to enhance picture sizes (it should not be too complicated to implement though). In order to read one character, it is necessary to stick the nose to the screen. Chinese is a hard language, and I don't believe anyone can possibly bear with the pain of reading characters with this book. It is a very simple thing, but can be a total showstopper when it comes to using that book.

I purchased this book several years ago when I was just beginning to reach the intermediate stage of Mandarin Chinese, but at the time I was so overwhelmed by other materials that I never got around to reading it. It was only last summer, after I had finally begun to strike out on my own, that I rediscovered it and decided to give it a look. And I'm glad that I did.

Like most grammars, it is not very practical in the sense that you can take what you learn from it and apply it immediately on the street. (A much better grammar for that purpose would be Modern Mandarin Chinese Grammar by Claudia Ross). But what this book does do, and does well, is introduce you to the subtleties of Mandarin Chinese. It's like unlocking a world of potential. It shows you what the Chinese language is capable of expressing, those little nuances and turns of phrase that really give a language it's flavor (but which are so often skipped over in introductory textbooks). I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning more than just the basics of how to say hello, goodbye, and which way to the train station.

Note: All the examples in this book are presented in simplified characters, as well as pinyin and English, which makes it easy to reference those characters you are not familiar with. And an extra side benefit is that the exercises at the end of each chapter give you a good excuse for practicing your Chinese handwriting.
Having completed 270 hours of study, I bought both this book and the intermediate level book to review and build upon what I had learned. I found the book very suitable for these purposes. Both books together provide comprehensive coverage of all essential Chinese grammar concepts, and there are helpful cross references between chapters. Each grammar point is illustrated with several examples, and possible sources of confusion are clarified. At the end of each chapter are a variety of self-checking exercises and an answer key in the appendix.

My only complaint is that the pinyin is in boldface, which distracts my eyes away from the characters. Any serious student of Chinese learns literacy along with speaking skills, so pinyin should not dominate.

Even here in China, I have not found a comprehensive reference/self-study grammar book. These books are a must for any person who endeavors to master Chinese. These books should not be used alone as model sentences do not provide full context for the language. These books are an excellent supplement to an integrated textbook.
