comment Use of Honorifics
@xiaohouzi79, yes, a father's younger brother is 叔父, informally 叔叔 kwanfamily.info/culture/familytitles_table.php. Interesting to hear about your usage, I have heard college students refering to strangers daughters as 妹妹 or 阿妹 in Taiwan.

comment Selecting resources to improve reading for upper-intermediate level?
Both are books, but couldn't find a link to the first one. It might be considered advanced level even, I had to look up some of the English translations for the vocabulary (!)

comment When is the spelling and the pronunciation different?
I always found the "bopo mofo" phonetic alphabet far better because of reasons like this. There is no duality, 'u' sound is one symbol, and the "ü" sound another one. Also, you won't be tricked into pronouncing anything in an English way (because no symbols are latin letters).
