I recently bought a COOL book in Caves Book store, Kaohsiung.
Daniels, Ray. Making out in Chinese. 1993, Yenbooks, Tokyo.
‘From lovers language to fighting words - all you need to speak like a native’
This book will teach you all the stuff other books (or co-teachers) won’t. It’s great!
I bought that book years ago. It is a lot of fun to go over with a language exchange partner.
I didn’t like the way the Romanized the words though. I will get into trouble for saying this, but I wish it had been romanized with Hanyu Pinyin.
Another goodie (I think it’s better and it DOES use pinyin) is ‘Outrageous Chinese’.
Maybe you can get it at Caves. I got it in Hong Kong. Learn how to say in Chinese useful phrases like ‘you are so hard you almost pierced me’ and ‘were you counting how many thrusts I made?’
This book was revised in 2003 and is well worth getting
I got my copy at Eslite, It’s small, and cheap at only 240nt.
Sadly, I don’t think it included the phrases Bu Lai En mentioned, but I now know how to ask a girl if she’s on the rag. :bravo:
I’d be interested to look at an older edition.
I discovered the new edition last week in Eslite (Zhongxiao-Dunhua store).
It has got Chinese characters (simplified though), and decent Hanyu Pinyin (besides & next to that it still uses what I call ‘Moron Pinyin’). The original version, which I have, doesn’t have these things.
I didn’t check if this version is ‘cut’ (i.e. has some vocab removed which was considered too coarse or something).
Anyway it’s worth getting this updated version.
I love this book! (Making Out in Chinese)
The phrases have made my honey bust out with peals of laughter. I can’t get him to tell me if it’s because I am saying it right or saying it almost right.
What does that supposed to mean?Seriously, when it comes to language exchange, does it has to be occur between oppsite sex? Because recently I’ve had this LE experience with a canadian(male), he tutor me Latin Spanish and I tutor him Chinese, the session was great, but it didnt last long, I assume that is because I’m not a gorgeous Taiwanese girl, hahah, am I right??
