Vivid illustrations of vocabulary make memorizing vocabulary much easier. This issue’s “Picture Dictionary” will show you what banks, bookstores and hospitals are called in Chinese.
Frequently used practical phrases in everyday life act as warm-ups for students before they dive into the main theme of the current volume. As long as the five essential phrases are memorized, Chinese learning will become that much easier. This current volume focuses on two health-related sentence patterns: (1) to describe your symptoms and the clinic you wish to see, and (2) to understand the prescriptions and instructions given by hospital staff.
Dramatizations of everyday life situations help incorporate Chinese into our daily lives. In this volume, Carlo the exchange student has the flu, and Xiaoyu has broken her leg. What happened? Read this section to find out and learn new vocabulary and sentences to do with emergencies. In addition, discover what the expression “病從口入，禍從口出” has to do with this trio of friends.
