It is a highly acclaimed textbook, because it satisfies the needs of students: being original in its choice of topics and materials, focusing on learning how to ask questions. By using this textbook, students will be enthusiastic about communication, and therefore, their speaking/conversational skill will be improved rapidly. This textbook is designed to allow beginners to finish in four to five weeks.

The 40 lessons encompass nearly 30 communicative functions such as "Greetings", "Making an Acquaintance", "Making an Inquiry", "Needs", "Making an Appointment", and "Traveling". It also introduces around 800 Chinese words and fundamental Chinese grammar. Each lesson is divided into six parts – Sentences, Conversation and Extension, New words, Grammar, and Exercises. This book emphasizes on improving the ability of learners to use Chinese for communication. Through study and practice you can acquire the ability to have simple conversations with the Chinese. Therefore, this textbook will help lay a solid foundation for further study.
