This book is not a textbook to consistently learn chinese,but it is a book to base and enrich the mastering in the language.

About the Author
My name is Orna taub.I was born in Israel in1957.

My big interesting in China and the Chinese language started after I graduated from Chinese medicine school in Israel
And complemented my study in another school of Chinese medicine to study two years Chinese herbs.

One of my instructors was a native Chinese doctor who came from chengdu and only spoke Chinese.

The meeting with him evoked in me a sudden and great attraction to China and a big passion to learn Chinese.

I started to learn chinese by myself using textbooks.

Gradually friendly relationships started to develop between me and my Chinese instructor ,and since he could only speak Chinese, I had no other choice but to break my teeth to speak Chinese with him. As I progressed in Chinese I started to help him in his everyday life communication and after a while also joined him to his patients homes to serve as a translator. Eventually I became his translator in his classes too.In the following years I continued to study by myself .After a few years I made my first trip to China and stayed in Chengdu (Sichuan province) for three months attending the Normal University and taking classes in Chinese language with other foreign students. During that time I spoke only Chinese and made great progress in my language studies.

Since I came back to Israel and on I use every possible way to study Chinese and deepen my knowledge in the language.

In the recent years I have taken one-on-one lessons using skype studying colloquial Chinese in advanced level with a native Chinese teacher from Beijing ,practice speaking with another teacher in chengdu and directly contact with Chinese native speakers friends by speaking and writing.Recently I graduated from the Beijing Language and Culture University (BLCU) after 8 months of studying Chinese translation (1-1 lesson by skype), and got a certificate.
After years of very diligent studying I decided to make use of my long time experience as a student and share my knowledge and insights with the worldwide mandarin students.Being a long time enthusiastic student myself let me experience the problems and difficulties of the mandarin student and my wish is to share the worldwide students with my knowledge and insights gained by my own efforts to overcome the difficulties and language issues I encountered. Till now I wrote several digital books for students which may be very beneficial for students who already have a basic knowledge in mandarin Chinese.
I hope the mandarin student will be benefited from my books.

Free Book: Coping with Grief and Loss: How to Recover from Loss and Overcome Feelings of Grief and Bereavement by Anne Mapehrson

This book is free on these days only – 08/28/2014 at midnight PST until 11:59 pm on 09/01/2014. If the dates are the same that means the book is free one day only.

coping-with-grief
Grief is the feeling of intense sorrow or despair, especially at the news of a loved one’s death. As humans, we have the gift of empathy, which allows us to be the social creatures that we are and function the way we do. But this gift is also a curse, as the same emotional centers in the brain that makes us feel joyous when we see a loved one also can make us cry uncontrollably when that person is gone forever. Death is not the only thing that can cause grief though; other events that can cause grief are a break-up, hard financial times, a family member being ill, or having a miscarriage. Also, keep in mind that people grieve differently, and crying and tears are not the only potential responses. Some may find themselves in an uncontrollable state of anger, some don’t eat for days, while others eat around the clock, and others separate themselves from the outside world for days, weeks, or even months. The way we grieve all depends on the person’s personality and how we grew up. But grief doesn’t have to engulf your life. There are ways to get your life back to a happy place again. This book explains what grief really is, how it affects us, and most importantly how we can cope with it and move through the process to feel normal and happy again.

Free Book: World of Shawn by Jordan M Ehrlich

This book is free on these days only – 08/28/2014 at midnight PST until 11:59 pm on 08/29/2014. If the dates are the same that means the book is free one day only.

WorldOfShawn_createspace_cover-sword3Dglowoutlineauthor
BACK TO SCHOOL SPECIAL

In honor of everyone who’s returning to learning, read about Shawn’s incredible adventure, and why it gets him suspended from school!

This is the story of a lonely kid who develops a computer game, using what little of quantum physics that he has read, that renders game levels from maps of any format; the result is just a little too realistic. When he tries to combine this “World of Shawn” with a favorite game of his childhood, “World of One,” he soon finds Worlds colliding, to the detriment of his friends. Shawn must step up and rectify things, rescue the princess and save the World.

The interaction and constant dialogue between the characters in this story, as well as the humor and action intertwined, have drawn comparison to that in such works as “The Lord of the Rings,” “Harry Potter,” and “Narnia,” so if a reader has an interest in any of those, as well as an interest in video games, either in the past or the present, it would be a safe bet that they would enjoy getting to know Shawn and his World!

~~

“My wife bought this book for me and thought as a gamer that I might like it! Man was she right! Very exciting, non stop thrill ride. Very well thought out and constructed. Plot lines all make sense, and all are reoccurring thought the entire book. The book flowed really nicely and ends with some really good sequences tying the whole experience to a thrilling conclusion!!! Overall great read!!! Can’t wait for this to become a summer blockbuster movie!!”

– 5 stars “GREAT READ FOR ANYONE WHO READS SIFI, OR HAS EVER PLAYED A VIDEO GAME :O)” By photonut

“Awesome…I found this book very well written….I think it was done a little bit too well,but I don’t think blowing minds is illegal.”

– 4 stars “Awesome” By Michael Johnson

About the Author
I am a software developer in Wichita, KS, and have my Master’s in Computer Science from the University of Kansas. I am divergent, as I have both a mathematical, computer-driven side, as well as a verbal, literature-driven side. I enjoy humor immensely, as well as history and, most of all, my faith in Jesus Christ is extremely important to me. “World of Shawn,” my first Young Adult novel, is my attempt to combine all of these into one story.

I am a big fan of “Harry Potter,” “LOTR,” “Narnia,” and “The Hunger Games,” as well as classic TV such as “The Three Stooges,” Don Knotts, and “Laurel & Hardy”; their influences are apparent in my work.
