I have bought two of these books for my son who's learning chinese (grades 3-5). His chinese is pretty basic. He can have some conversations because that's the style he has learned in, conversational chinese, but his vocabulary is lacking. That's where this helps. It does lack in repetition. It introduces words and then only uses them for the next page or two, then moves on. That's the only downfall I can really see. It also shows you the chinese symbols and the stroke order and direction to write them. It even has a QR code on each page so you can scan and hear the spoken words, very nice! We have a chinese instructor for my son, and he has his text books, so at home we simply supplement with little workbooks and story books to increase his immersion in the language. This little (and it IS little) workbook is good for that. It's not extensive enough to base any curriculum around, and probably not even to be activities in the class, but it is PERFECT for little extras later in the day to remind the brain how to think in chinese. Highly recommend.
