Chinese Chinese paper dictionary


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm new here and have a question

I'm looking for a Chinese - Chinese dictionary made for learners.

Explanations should use a simple set of common hanzi.

I used the search, but only only electronic versions are discussed, I need something on paper. Would be plus if it is available in Europe, maybe by Amazon.

When I was learning English I used "Oxford advanced learners dictionary" and I really like the quality and size of that book. Is there something comparable for Chinese learners?

Don't know about online availability, but there are two books I would like to recommend to you:

现代汉语八百次 商务印刷管 This book is great and might be what you are looking for.

ISBN 7-100-02197-9/H x 609

The other one is an HSK book:

Hope it helps!
