Publisher Comments:

With the tremendous good will generated by the Olympics in Beijing, and the spectacular growth of Chinese economic and political influence around the world, a working knowledge of the Mandarin language is more valuable than ever. And as such, Chinese is one of the fastest growing markets on the foreign language shelf. To address this need, Oxford announces a new edition of its highly popular Pocket Oxford Chinese Dictionary, offering a wealth of lexical information in a compact, affordable paperback format.

Authoritative and up to date, this fourth edition of the Pocket Oxford Chinese Dictionary covers over 90,000 words and phrases, and over 130,000 translations of contemporary Chinese and English, with hundreds of brand-new words added to both languages. More than just a dictionary, this handy reference book also includes brand new sections on culture and communication, giving you the tools you need to communicate effectively and understand aspects of another culture. The section on culture offers lively and useful information on life in the German-speaking world, covering everything from politics to weddings. The communication supplement gives help with all types of correspondence, including example letters, emails, CVs and resumes, and text messaging. New to this edition is a brand-new section on the internet, covering shopping, banking, buying travel tickets, and checking information online.
