ID: BST0071 Any
Quips and wordplay in any language are always welcome and entertaining, not to mention highly impressive if you happen to be using your nonnative language! In today's BST, ChinesePod star Connie joins us to break down a relatively complex form of Chinese wordplay: 歇后语 (xiēhòuyǔ). Falling somewhere between an idiom and a riddle, these interesting patterns are a surefire way to impress your friends and sound even more like a native speaker! We will give fair warning that this BST is targeted at those learners who have already attained a reasonably high level of Chinese ability, but these were too interesting not to touch on! Tune in now!
