Applied Channel Therapy in Chinese Medicine: Wang &hellip by Wang Ju-Yi

This gorgeously presented book is ideal for those who have a foundational knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine theory and would like to deepen their understanding. It is a series of lectures given by the highly experienced TCM practitioner Wang Ju-Yi, collected and translated by a native English-speaking student who worked closely with Dr Wang for many years.

The vocabulary is kept as simple as possible so that the learner is practising grammar, not vocab, but it is not so simple as to reduce the exercises to nonsense. I'm happy I have finally found a book which is worth working through.

What is the learner supposed to do with the list? Read it? Stare at it? Make it into William Burroughs-style cutups?

We are then presented with a series of ridiculous nonsense sentences to translate. I solemnly promise that if I ever find myself needing to write or say "I want three rats for my mouse" in Spanish then I will change this to a 5-star review, donate 10 to the author's favourite charity and shave my head on… Read more
