Each word and sentence is given in Chinese characters with Hanyu Pinyin pronunciation and English definition. The words are grouped into 37 themes or topics. Each theme has 25 to 35 words and 5 to 8 sentences and is richly illustrated with color photographs. A free CD contains audio recordings by native Mandarin speakers of all the vocabulary and sentences.
