Ancient Chinese wisdom of Confucius, Laozi and Zhuangzi for learning contemporary Chinese language through China’ cultural heritage
Are you studying Chinese? Do you want to know what the Chinese think is good and what is wicked? Do you want to know why the Chinese laugh and why they cry? To really get to the answers, you may have to talk to thousands of people and read tons of books, which is improbable. Well, there may be an easier way to do this: by going back some 2000 years to the times and thoughts of ancient Chinese philosophers.
Chinese Wisdom is a series of Chinese cultural and language books, starting with Confucius, Laozi, Zhuangzi, thinkers and teachers who have helped generations of Chinese in their search for truth, knowledge and path to a meaningful life. The Chinese Wisdom series provides a quick yet insightful look into their thought, and at the same time offers intermediate and advanced language lessons replete with useful sentence patterns, idioms and vocabulary, as well as in the form of stories and fables.
