Chinese for TCM Practitioners teaches simple spoken Chinese and the terminology of Chinese medicine. The language section is based on practical phrases used in everyday situations and in the clinic. The accompanying compact discs bring the spoken word to life and make learning Chinese a practical reality. Disc 1 covers basic Chinese, and Disc 2 covers TCM terminology. A little familiarity with Chinese can make learning Chinese herbs and formulas so much easier. Names can indicate whether it is a root, a leaf or a flower, and formula names become more meaningful.
