Better Textbooks on the Mainland?


#1

I just spent an hour on China Books and Periodicals website and I was wondering, are the textbooks from Zhong Guo Da Lu any better than here in Taiwan?

I noticed that the Foreign Press there has produced a whole series (beginner to advanced,6 books in all) of Business Chinese texts. Here all I’ve seen are two texts at the intermed.-advanced level. They also have books like “The Translator’s guide to Chinglish.” Sounds useful.

So how are the texts acroos the Strait? And are they available in Hong Kong or Shenzhen?
