This innovative new book explains the major topics of Mandarin grammar in clear and concise language, packed with real language examples and loads of varied and imaginative exercises that show students how grammar works in practice. Wen-Hua Teng, an experienced teacher of Mandarin at the university level, breaks the book into three highly effective sections, examining the core structures of Chinese grammar, describing the use of the language in context, and highlighting useful expressions and patterns. She introduces each grammatical topic clearly and simply, offers sample sentences in Chinese characters and Pinyin (followed by English translations), discusses existing exceptions to a particular rule, and provides exercises that students can use to reinforce the lesson. As a further aid, the guide includes extensive cross referencing, a glossary that lucidly explains the relevant grammatical terms, and a free interactive website that provides a number of complementary exercises for further study. Combining down-to-earth description and numerous helpful exercises, Yufa! is the clearest and most comprehensive Mandarin grammar available for students and teachers.
