There is a mistake on page 6, question 9. It says: "Cèsoǔ zài nǎ'er?" But it has to be Cesuo.
Yes, you're right. My Chinese is better than beginner. I just took a look and saw it.
Btw. very good overview for beginners. Would have been helpful for me, when I started.
Thanks Thomas for pointing that out. I can't tell you how many times Seraph and I looked over this book before we put it out. I guess it's just hard to see your own mistakes ; ) Feel free to contact me personally if you catch anything else that slipped through our editing process!
Ohhhh sorry, can't believe we missed that... Thank you for pointing out. :)
Hi Sikora and Seraph, you did a great job! I would like to translate it into Lithuanian. Could you please send me a personal message to talk in detail about this idea?
I am reading the book now. Great work! Thank you for providing this to the community.
Thanks Andy! Glad you've had a chance to give it a read through.
Wow! Thank you for this cool resource!!!
I like the way you have included a detailed explanation below each question. I am a beginner myself, and I must say, this looks awesome!
Thanks for the positive feedback. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions as you go through it. Have you tried using any of what is in the book in conversations yet?
Really incredible information! Thank you so much! I'll definitely pass this on to my friends.
