Q: Which English language books would you recommend for a beginning-level Chinese university student?

Hi, a student approached me and asked about this. (Just some simple novels or story books,etc.) Hence, my question. Thank you for your suggestions.

Beijing University Foreign Language Press has an entire set of the greatest English novels in bilingual format -- mind you, the English has been watered down, hacked, rendered simple and is more often than not totally unrelated to the original prose.  Nonetheless the series is still quite rich in vocabulary and makes for relatively easy reading.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
