MEDIA REVIEWS
"Outstanding for its carefully graduated presentation of material ... and perhaps most important of all, its separation of the task of learning to speak the language from the very different processes of learning to read and write Chinese characters ... The most exciting Chinese language textbook I have seen in many years." -Dr. James E. Dew, retired associate professor of Chinese, Univ. of Michigan; former Director of the Inter-University Program for Chinese Language Studies in Taipei
"A breath of fresh air ... Its dual track for spoken and written language finally gives American students a chance to develop oral proficiency without being slowed down by the character writing ... An ideal textbook for any program that seeks to advance rapidly in spoken Chinese and to fully prepare the students for their encounter with China." -Dr. Jingqi Fu, Associate Professor of Chinese, St. Mary's College of Maryland
"Contextualized so learners know not only what to say, but why, when, and with whom it is appropriate to use such language - thorough and clear - refreshing." -Dr. Matthew Christensen, Associate Professor of Chinese, Brigham Young University
"The ideal material for any committed learner embarking on the journey of learning the Chinese language." -Dr. Jun Yang, Senior Lecturer in Chinese, University of Chicago
"Revolutionary in its approach ... The dream of having engaged and fully-prepared students in every class is an easily reachable reality for any program that adopts this series." -Professor Cecilia Chang, Chair, Department of Asian Studies, Williams College
"This is one of the best elementary Chinese textbooks, I believe, ever produced in the history of teaching Chinese as a second language ... A great and unique work which will benefit students and teachers for many years to come." -Dr. Shengli Feng, Professor of Chinese Linguistics, Chinese University of Hong Kong
"Kubler's books distinguish themselves with natural, culturally-rooted dialogues, detailed notes (for both written and spoken language), generous practice activities and an amazing care for organization. These books will be valuable tools for both students and their teachers." -Prof. Eric Pelzl, Wisconsin Lutheran College
"An ingenious introduction - Basic Spoken Chinese is the finest textbook for learning Modern Standard Mandarin that I have ever encountered." -Dr. Victor H. Mair, Professor of Chinese Language and Literature, University of Pennsylvania
