Jan W. Walls, SFU professor emeritus and founding director of the David Lam Centre, and former SFU instructor Yvonne Li Walls have written a Chinese language book for students who know the basics and wish to extend their knowledge. Using Chinese: A Guide to Contemporary Usage (2009, Cambridge Univ. Press) addresses aspects of Chinese usage including letter writing, idioms, proverbs and riddles. It also introduces recent words such as Internet vocabulary so students can understand and properly use both up-to-date expressions and everyday language.
