Where Chineasy 's books, flashcards and memory game helped learners to recognize a diverse range of characters, this new workbook offers the opportunity to practise writing Chinese characters. Noma Bar's playful and appealing colour illustrations are interspersed with practical pages showing learners how to write the characters themselves. Short facts illuminate the meaning of a character or the origin of its shape, while a guide to the correct stroke order and grids to help with spacing allow learners to perfect their writing skills. Maintaining the innovative visual identity of the Chineasy brand, the workbook is the perfect complement to the existing range, but is also self- standing and doesn't require learners to be familiar with the method. Suitable for everyone from schoolchildren to businesspeople, it will foster a genuine appreciation of the Chinese language and provide a fun introduction to the art of Chinese calligraphy

Questo libro ti farà imparare il Cinese in soli 30 giorni, partendo da zero. E questa è più di una semplice promessa. Ti spiego… Il metodo è molto semplice: il libro è suddiviso in 30 capitoli, uno per giorno, per permetterti di imparare le basi di questa lingua in un solo mese. Per ottenere il massimo da questo corso, devi solo rispettare una regola: leggere un capitolo al giorno, né più, né meno. Se rispetti questa regola e segui le indicazioni contenute nel libro, il risultato è garantito. Dimentica i soliti noiosi corsi grammaticali, dal profilo anonimo e spersonalizzato. “Come imparare il Cinese in 30 giorni” è stato realizzato con tutti i crismi del self-help, come un manuale pratico, dal taglio personale, divertente e motivante. È ricco di tanti aneddoti curiosi e consigli utili non solo per parlare in cinese, ma anche per cavarsela in viaggio. Se non sei ancora convinto, continua a leggere… Dalla Premessa dell’Autrice… (…) L’obiettivo di questa guida è farti fare bella figura comunicando in cinese, la lingua più parlata al mondo, sempre più importante anche in Occidente. Ti insegnerò il cinese con un metodo pratico e divertente, basato su dialoghi e situazioni tipiche: un approccio “comunicazionale”, che riduce la grammatica all’osso. Imparerai da subito le nozioni fondamentali per comporre la frase, per formare espressioni semplici e muovere i primi passi nella conversazione prima di quanto tu possa credere. Voglio che tu apprenda il cinese con semplicità, senza sforzi e soprattutto divertendoti. Per questo le lezioni saranno brevi e graduali: non dovrai impiegare più di 15 minuti di studio al giorno! Tieni sempre con te questa guida, mentre aspetti l’autobus, durante una pausa caffè o perché no, mentre ti rilassi a letto: ti basteranno pochi minuti al giorno per padroneggiare le basi della conversazione. Cerca di rileggere più volte, a voce alta, i dialoghi. Poi chiudi il libro e prova a ripeterli. Sì, imparali a memoria: può sembrare antiquato, ma con le lingue funziona! Fatti interrogare sui vocaboli appresi da qualcuno. Poi, prima di andare a letto, riprendi in mano il capitolo e dagli un’ultima lettura: vedrai che in un solo giorno (5 minuti davanti alla macchinetta del caffè, 5 minuti in bagno e 5 a letto) avrai memorizzato tutto. Non prendere scorciatoie: questa guida è già ridotta all’essenziale, meno di così troverai solo i frasari delle guide turistiche!

"On Friendship, with its total of one hundred sayings, is the perfect gift for friends."--Feng Yingjing, renowned scholar and civic official, 1601 Matteo Ricci (1552-1610) is best known as the Italian Jesuit missionary who brought Christianity to China. He also published a landmark text on friendship--the first book to be written in Chinese by a European--that instantly became a late Ming best seller. On Friendship distilled the best ideas on friendship from Renaissance Latin texts into one hundred pure and provocative Chinese maxims. Written in a masterful classical style, Ricci's sayings established his reputation as a great sage and the sentiments still ring true. Available for the first time in English, On Friendship matches a carefully edited Chinese text with a facing-page English translation and includes notes on sources and biographical, historical, and cultural information. Still admired in China for its sophistication and inspirational wisdom, On Friendship is a delightful cross-cultural work by a crucial and fascinating historical figure. It is also an excellent tool for learning Chinese, pairing a superb model of the classical language with an accessible and accurate translation.

THE NUMBER ONE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER, PICKED FOR THE ZOE BALL TV BOOK CLUB ‘Ruth Jones is excellent on human nature and why we make the mistakes we do. I felt for every character. Unputdownable.’ Jojo Moyes ***** In her unmissable debut, actress and screenwriter Ruth Jones shows us the dangers of trying to recapture that which was once lost and failing to realise the beauty of what we already have. ***** ‘We spend most of our lives wishing we were somewhere else or someone else, or looking forward or harping back. Always thinking the grass is greener on the other side. But it never is. It’s still grass. Just a different patch of it, that’s all.’ ***** The past has a habit of tracking us down. And tripping us up. When Kate was twenty-two, she had an intense and passionate affair with a married man, Callum, which ended in heartbreak. Kate thought she’d never get over it. Seventeen years later, life has moved on – Kate, now a successful actress, is living in London, married to Matt and mother to little Tallulah. Meanwhile Callum and his wife Belinda are happy together, living in Edinburgh and watching their kids grow up. The past, it would seem, is well and truly behind them all. But then Kate meets Callum again. And they are faced with a choice: to walk away from each other . . . or to risk finding out what might have been. Second chances are a rare gift in life. But that doesn’t mean they should always be taken . . . ***** 'I love books about gnarly, messy relationships and this one kept me gripped from the beginning. A great read.’ Jane Fallon ‘Heart-rending, provocative and astutely written, Never Greener is a love story about getting what you want and losing everything you need. Ruth’s characters will stay with me for a long time.’ Cathy Bramley

When Richard Nisbett showed an animated underwater scene to his American students, they zeroed in on a big fish swimming among smaller fish. Japanese subjects, on the other hand, made observations about the background environment...and the different "seeings" are a clue to profound underlying cognitive differences between Westerners and East Asians. As Professor Nisbett shows in The Geography of Thought people actually think - and even see - the world differently, because of differing ecologies, social structures, philosophies, and educational systems that date back to ancient Greece and China, and that have survived into the modern world. As a result, East Asian thought is "holistic" - drawn to the perceptual field as a whole, and to relations among objects and events within that field. By comparison to Western modes of reasoning, East Asian thought relies far less on categories, or on formal logic; it is fundamentally dialectic, seeking a "middle way" between opposing thoughts. By contrast, Westerners focus on salient objects or people, use attributes to assign them to categories, and apply rules of formal logic to understand their behaviour.
