Communicative Chinese is specially compiled to help non-native speakers of Chinese to communicate with Chinese people correctly and in a socially appropriate way.

The conversations in the book are selected with a functional approach - they embrace all the main types of exchanges commonly used in social contact and in the everyday situations in which foreigners in China will most often find themselves. Typical examples are followed by example explanations on how to use them in particular situations. In each case, common alternatives are provided, which can be employed under similar circumstances.

Divided into 70 sections, this book covers almost every aspect of social contact in China:

Modes of Address; Introductions; Making Acquaintance; Greetings; Welcoming; Making Appointments; Invitations; Entertaining Guests; Thanks; Apologies; Paying Visits; Praise; Congratulations; Presenting Gifts; Taking Leave; Seeing People off; Shopping; Negotiating Prices; Returning and Exchanging Articles; At the Hairdresser's; Getting Clothes Cleaned; Taking Photographs; Repairs; Going to the Doctor; Visiting a Patient; Comfort; Advice; Warnings; Telephoning; Eating out; At the Post Office; At the Bank; In the Classroom; Entertainment; Sports and Games; Matches and Competitions; Visiting Places of Interest; Tourism; Making Enquiries; Exchanging Currency; Bookings and Reservations; Shipping Luggage; At the Hotel; Urban Transport; At the Railway Station; At the Port; At the Airport; At Customs; Talking About the Family; Talking About Age; Talking About Occupation; Talking About the Weather; Talking About Hobbies; Talking About Personality and Mood; Talking About Studies; Talking About Languages; Talking About Festivals; Talking About Religion; Time; Ability; Comparison; Requests; Agreement; Opposition; Refusal; Affirmation; Negation; Possibility; Hypothesis; Conjectures.

For the reader's convenience, every example exchange is provided with pinyin transcriptions, and the entire Chinese text is accompanied with English translation.
