脏话: The best way to learn Chinese?

Many would have no objection to the suggestion that learning how to swear in another language is a shortcut to master that language. That's why some of my friends recommended this book to me.



I read it -- not finished it yet. Sometimes feel quite embarrassed. But one thing is surely universal among all cultures and languages: they love to use female private parts as an insult -- or compliment.

Anyway, next time I want to say awesome in Chinese. I know how.

Niu Bi!

Haven't read the book yet, although plan to do so. But I know one phrase, "shabi", which I was told could be used to insult almost anything or anybody.

Heard of it during one football match in Beijing when a chorus of "shabi" was hurled towards the ref and the away players -- actually it lasted for the whole match! Then someone explained the essence of the phrase...in no way elegant, but comes in quite handy sometimes.

Why, isn't that Eric Cartman? :lol

It's indeed true that learning how to call names is a convenient way to approach the language.

That's why I love watching South Park!
