Chinese-English Phrasebook

Jump to last reply

I will be visiting China for a month April-May. My only language is English.

I will be trying to learn the phonetics for the standard civilities and some necessary questions; please, thank you, how much, where is the bathroom etc. I have been trying to memorise some characters in Simplified Chinese for numbers and other things; it appears that my mind does not think in Chinese :(

I have the DK eyewitness guide, but I think I need a smalI phrasebook that I can carry easily in a hip pocket.

I would appreciate reader's advice and opinions of the various phrasebooks they have used and how useful they were in communicating with non-English-speaking Chinese people on their trips.

TIA

Cheers, Alan, Australia
