This Quick Start edition provides the first two lessons of the full Zhongwen Bu Mafan! first-year Mandarin curriculum (available on Kindle). It includes two input units and the accompanying 400+ word reading, in both Traditional and Simplified character versions. This edition is intended for teachers who want to start the year or try out the Cold Character reading method of Mandarin literacy without making the investment in the full curriculum. It is not suited to individuals learning Mandarin on their own; it is intended for teacher use.
