This book is intended to help you understand the fundamentals of Chinese grammar. It is a study aid that can complement your other work in language learning. The charts deal with the
use of compound sentences in Chinese. Each chart contains the Chinese characters as well as PinYin. There is a blank version of each chart provided that can be used as a quiz or self-assessment tool.

This study aid is designed for HSK level 2-3 students, but can help anyone looking for additional grammar help, from parents teaching Chinese to their children to new teachers of
Chinese in need of visual aids to students looking for additional support. Whatever your level or goals, this book will be a great tool in your language learning journey.
