Product Synopsis

WHY DON'T THE CHINESE SAY "I LOVE YOU"? HOW DO THEY GET BY WITHOUT MAPS? CAN IT EVER BE RUDE TO BE POLITE? In this intelligent, sympathetic book, Deborah Fallows opens up a window onto Chinese life through its notoriously difficult language. She shows how even small advancements, such as mastering a single word or phrase, can unlock grammatical and cultural secrets. Whether it's learning not to say 'please', or understanding why the Chinese hate the number 4, Fallows uses stories from three years of living and working in China, to offer unique insights into the country's customs and culture. This book will appeal to anyone with an interest in China, be they first-time tourists, seasoned business people, or just the idly curious. It will help you to think like the Chinese think.
