The Usborne First Hundred Words in Chinese serves as a novel vocabulary-builder, teaching 100 new Chinese words. Each object in the book is clearly labelled with its Chinese name, with the English word underneath. This book uses Mandarin Chinese (the official and best-known dialect) and simplified characters (the version of the written language used across mainland China).
An alphabetical Chinese / English list of all the words used is provided at the end of the book, together with an easy-to-use pronunciation guide.
Children will love looking through each double page spread in search of the well-renowned 'yellow duck' ™.
- If internet access is available, this book contains links to the Usborne website where children can listen to the words in this book being read by a native speaker.
Usborne First Hundred Words in Chinese is suitable for children of all abilities, even complete beginners.
The easy-to-use pronunciation guide will help parents having no previous knowledge of Chinese to enjoy using this book with their child.
