Abstract Whether collecting trinkets at the local market or negotiating the purchase of a traditional Chinese-style painting in a specialized gallery, the beginning speaker needs to know the right words and phrases when shopping in China. This program helps equip the Western visitor with the language skills necessary for pleasant and effective consumer transactions with Chinese proprietors. Cultural topics include: Beijing's addiction to shopping, from designer fashion to herbal medicine; how to browse, bargain, and buy, Chinese-style; and the elaborate and time-honored art of cloisonne, or enamel-coated pottery.
