Making Out in Chinese

Review by: John Pasden
This book is part of a popular series which is designed to help the reader meet members of the opposite sex in foreign countries. It’s designed for people who are not seriously studying the language.
That said, it does have some useful vocab and phrases in it, but I can’t stand reading it. Why? Because there are no Chinese characters in the whole book, and the romanization method used is not even pinyin, it’s some “easier” method that the author devised.
You might be able to get this book in some cities in China, but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone but the most casual learner.
