All entries in the frequency list feature the English equivalent and a sample sentence with English translation. The dictionary also contains thirty thematically organised lists of frequently used words on a variety of topics such as food, weather, travel and time expressions. A Frequency Dictionary of Mandarin Chinese enables students of all levels to maximise their study of Mandarin vocabulary in an efficient and engaging way.
