I'm trying to find a good textbook to systematically self-study reading Chinese. What I need is something with plenty of repetition so that I am able to "soak up" the characters gradually and in my own time. Children's books don't have the sort of vocabulary needed for everyday conversation. I've found a book by Fang-yu Wang called "Read Chinese: a beginning text in the chinese character" which would be ideal, except that it doesn't have an English Key for the exercises, and although some sentences are purely in Simplified characters, the bulk of the text is in Traditional characters. Has anyone any suggestions ?
