To liven up spoken Chinese, Gems of the Chinese Language through the Ages series presents the selection of everyday idioms, which includes four books: The Stories Behind 100 Chinese Idioms; 100 Pearls of Chinese Wisdom; 100 Common Chinese Idioms and Set Phrases; and 100 Chinese Two-Part Allegorical Sayings. China has a history of 5,000 years and a lot of idioms have evolved over time. A lot of literary quotations and allusions are still used today. Ignorance of these idioms is a prime cause of misunderstanding to Chinese language.

100 Chinese Two-Part Allegorical Sayings collects the most popular Two-Part Allegorical Sayings, such as, “Using telephone poles as chopsticks—putting much material to petty use,” and, “A dog catching a mouse – poking one’s nose into other people’s business.” The Chinese use these sayings on a daily basis, and now you can too. Each couplet is presented in Chinese, Pinyin, and English, along with an illustration, and is followed by a brief explanation in Chinese and English. Some more obscure expressions are clarified with the help of annotations in both Chinese and English. This is a wonderful way to learn more about Chinese culture and language, and increase your own vocabulary of expression as well.

This order is for one book only.
