SPEAK E-Z CHINESE In Phonetic English

Authors Timothy Green and Zhao Fang worked for two years to create a language book that made learning Mandarin easy and fun. It also had to contain words and phrases that travellers would use. The pair have a sense of humor as the book contains off-colour or potentially offensive phrases that, let's be honest, you might have to use in China. The book is timely.
