Living In China

How to Feel at Home, Make Friends, and Enjoy Everyday Life: A Brief Introduction to the Culture for Visitors, Students, and Business Travelers


Is the twenty-first century "The Chinese Century?" At the very least, this fascinating country is already a major force in our global village, and as such, this short, informative book not only prepares the visitor to China, but offers factual, historical, and cultural information that will be of interest to any global citizen.

The text, amplified by many pictures collected by the authors, follows the same format as the other titles in Pro Lingua's "Living In" series. Unlike typical travel guides, this series does not tell you where to eat and stay and how to get from say, Beijing to Shanghai. Instead it helps prepare you for getting the most out of your visit, physically when you go there or virtually if you only read about it.


Living in China focuses on practical information needed for everyday life - money, food, hotels and travel (First Steps); on Chinese Culture and how it interfaces with those of "the West; on facts about the country, the land, people, government, economy, and history; on doing business in China: on getting a job in China; and it gives a brief introduction to the Chinese language and many useful phrases.



"To the busy traveler, this series of very readable and entertaining guides provides a brief introduction, vital statistics, a little history, and a lot of practical advice that instill a sense of security from the time you arrive at the port of entry. Everything you really need to know - from money and banking practices to health tips to local customs and a brief historical overview - is at your fingertips, in a book that neatly fits in your jacket pocket. If you don't know the territory - or the people - this guide is good company to any stranger in a strange land."
