Following the 70 Chinese characters taught in the previous book, this book introduces 50 new most frequently used characters, which are carefully selected based on their occurrence frequency and their places in Mandarin Express series. Many illustrations, such as words, sentences and paragraphs, are included to show students how these 50 characters are used. Special attention is paid to make sure that all illustrations are comprised of characters already presented.
The structure of the book contains five lessons with each one focusing on ten Chinese characters, a review section which brings everything together, and a stroke order chart for quick references. These new characters improve students' overall reading and writing abilities quickly.
On completing the book, students will be able to use 120 Chinese characters effectively, read more expressive Chinese texts, and write their own stories and conversations. Most importantly, students will find learning Chinese reading and writing is a very powerful tool to have in-depth understanding of Chinese language.
