My role was as editor & contributor to the book, the e-book (on Kindle), and as the creator of the related website http://www.havefuntalking.com. The publication contains dialogues dealing with a wide variety of life situations including Chinese translations of each conversation, as well as exercises to expand knowledge and vocabulary. It includes jokes on each page, idioms, and words of wisdom to promote thinking skills. The dialogues are also available on audio and CD formats.
That’s right, jokes! HUNDREDS of jokes! And why not? The name is HAVE FUN TALKING!, and we want you to have hundreds of laughs while you learn. There are jokes about cats, dogs, cars, banks, luggage, cheese, fish, teachers, monkeys, chickens, phones, motorcycles, airports, railroads and artists. You name it, we have probably included a joke about it.
What do you call an alligator in a vest? An investigator.
