This book got swarmed over by my Chinese friends. I don't think they actually use A LOT of these words in real life, in regular conversation (so it wouldn't be as useful as one might think. what a shocker), but they found it hilarious that there was a book that had all these terms. The banana in our group (Americanized Chinese) found it especially interesting. The others kept laughing at his pronunciation, but he studiously kept at learning the words for "dildo" and "masturbation". Oh, you guys. ...more
Eat.Sleep.Lift.Read.
Not exactly that useful but fun nonetheless.

This book is a good starting block for learning colloquial words and phrases in modern Chinese but does a terrible job of elaborating or providing cultural context. I found "Nuibi" by Evelyn Chao to be a better alternative but this book did have it's uses.

I was hoping that some of the information in here would be more up-to-date. I also felt that some of the vocab and expressions should be more relevant...

Unentbehrliche Lektüre

In diesem kleinen Nachschlagewerk findet man wichtige Formulierungen in Mandarin für jede Lebenslage - vom Hallo übers Essen und andere Körperfunktionen bis zum Tschüss. Dabei gibt es verschiedene Vorschläge, je nach Situation: das allgegenwärtige 怎么样, das nicht mehr ganz so höfliche 肏你妈 und allerlei unangenehme Dinge wie 湿疣 sind dabei noch die harmlosesten Vertreter der Flucherei und anzüglichen Unterhaltung. Für jede Phrase findet sich die englische Übersetzung, die Pinyi

I read this book to learn something about the culture, rather than learning the language.
Again this series of books is most excellent. China is a large country with some of the
regional differences well portrayed, as well the consistencies that make the culture.
