Chinese Blockbuster 8
Last Step towards Reading Fluency in Chinese
This is Book 8, the last book of the Chinese Blockbuster series!
You learned in Book 1 that in Chinese, number 8 has the connotation of abundance, all around, all-encompassing. It is also considered a lucky number by the Chinese people. With Book 8, you now have access to an abundance of Chinese characters (well over 4000 characters, simplified and traditional forms combined) and your knowledge of Chinese is all-encompassing, allowing you to go all around China or the China towns of the world and read everything you see there. You are so lucky!
The Chinese Blockbuster series covers all aspects of a Chinese character:
- Its simplified and traditional forms
- The building blocks making up each form
- Its various definitions
- Its various pronunciations in Mandarin
- Its known etymology, ancient meanings and shapes
- Examples of use
- Additional information, such as its frequency of use and other fascinating facts
The goal of the Chinese Blockbuster Series is not limited to teaching you the ‘top few Chinese characters you need to know to get by,’ only to realize later that you don’t get anywhere with such a limited number of characters. It covers what is necessary for reaching reading fluency in modern Chinese.
This is the eighth and last book of the series and its print and electronic versions can be purchased on Amazon.
The electronic version is also available on Apple, Nook and Kobo.
