Learning Real Chinese

I was wondering which textbook was being used :-)

Has Chinese become the language of corruption? Global Times.

I have such mixed feelings on this quote from the article. Sad, Amazement, & humorous at the same time.

Chinese language learners are now attempting to learn the so-called Chinese wisdom of twisting rules and playing dirty tricks, just like Little Zhao is taught to do in "Funny Business" dialogues. My friend said he found them quite useful and practical when it came to doing business in China.

When I was teaching ESL there were no dialogs like that. I don't believe any of my Learning Chinese Curriculum has this type of practical Chinese in them. Even if I have a series called Practical Chinese and New Practical Chinese Reader.
