Practical Chinese Reader

Here are some improved Practical Chinese Reader lists (not NPCR). Books 1 and 2 originally came from Matti Tukiainen's site, so they are released under the GPL. Book 3 came from Dave Hiebeler's site.

I took those lists, converted them to UTF-8, added the traditional and made some other small improvements before converting them to pleco flashcard format. The most recently updated version of these lists can be found at

Here's the vocabulary for the original Practical Chinese Reader 4.
I've included all the grammatical terms from the lesson notes as well. Not all the words have definitions, but link up to ABC.
