Summary and Info
Do you want to know the unspoken conversations around you when visiting other countries? Are you someone who likes to travel on your own terms—from finding that special restaurant to negotiating a better price for a prized antique in a local flea market? If so, Decoding China is the hands-on communication guide for you!Decoding China will teach you the basic "rules of the road" on how to operate in Chinese culture. Like every country, China has its own unique set of cultural "codes," ways of behaving on a daily basis that all Chinese automatically know. These codes frame every personal interaction in China. By learning to recognize these key words and phrases—and use them correctly—everything you do in China will go a lot more smoothly.In practical chapters organized by topic, Dr. Christensen shows you how to get things done in China, even with very minimal knowledge of the language. Make your China experience work for, rather than against you with Decoding China.
