Book Description

More Chinglish: SPEAKING IN TONGUES offers a fresh look at the unintentional but very funny creative misuses of the English language in Chinese street signs, products, and advertising. Enjoy 100 brand-new examples of this unique cultural heritage, which, due to efforts from the Chinese government to wipe out all forms of incorrect signage and advertising, is about to disappear.


Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Welcome once again to the wonderful world of Chinglish! Perhaps you'd like to start your trip by checking in to the Resist Bacteria Hotel? Once you get settled, it's time for supper. May we suggest the binaural infected cucumber? It's really quite delicious. And after supper, how about a night on the town? But remember: no voting in the pool! Oliver Lutz Radtke is the author of Chinglish: Lost in Translation. He works as a multimedia producer and editor in Beijing.

5.0 out of 5 stars such fun!! August 16, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a silly book, dealing with the difficulty in trying to translate Chinese into English. It's not strictly "P.C.", but the gaffes will have you laughing out loud.I have several issues of this author's books, as well as two issues of Sign Spotting[[ASIN:1741044898 Lonely Planet Signspotting: Absurd & Amusing Signs from Around the World.

It has become a family tradition for when my grand kids come over....each one chooses a book, then we take turns reading to each other from them: Lots and lots of laughs!
If you have a funnybone and/or a sense of the absurd, I think you'll enjoy this book.

Got a big kick out of it
I can't remember what was done with "Don't stem on the grass".
But I remember getting a big kick out of it.

The whole family have spent more time laughing over this book that I would have thought possible... Though it's really just a website converted to paper, still, funny.
