Language has always been the way we communicate. Even God used it to communicate with Adam. In ancient China, words were carved into dried bones, strips of bamboo, and perhaps even animal skins until paper was developed. Forest Leigh Littke, who was an oral English teacher in mainland China from 2010 to 2018, recalls how he fell in love with and learned Chinese in this guide to learning the language based on phonetics. By using surnames from throughout history, he explains how phonetics work as well as how to match Chinese script characters with spoken words. With inspirational quotes and a fun workbook, this book will serve as a valuable resource for anyone who wants to learn more about the Chinese language.
