This book is a unique, bilingual, cross-cultural reader in English and Simplified as well as Traditional Chinese. The text is composed of personal, often humorous, stories followed by innovative as well as more standard exercises to help learners become more proficient in their second language and culture while better understanding their first. Familiar events like traveling, the first day at school and birthdays are seen through foreign lenses tinted with good humor.
