This new edition of Integrated Chinese is an outstanding achievement. Complete with interesting cultural notes, useful authentic materials, and a wealth of interactive exercises, the authors have outdone themselves AGAIN!

— Dr. Zoe Wu, Chinese Language Program, Pasadena City College

[I've] been studying languages since 3rd grade (I'm 46), and have seen language courses come and go. I've always looked for the "ideal" course for every language I've studied.  I've been successful for the most part, and now I've found Integrated Chinese.

— Student from Mukilteo, WA

Overall, we would rate Integrated Chinese as superior, innovative, and extremely versatile. We recommend it without hesitation as an invaluable core component of a Chinese language program at both the high school and college levels.

I especially appreciate the new features of the Third Edition: the clearly marked objectives and progress indicators have been very helpful to me while planning my lessons.

— Lili Pan, Lexington High School, MA

One of the things I like best about the Integrated Chinese textbook is the wonderful organization: each lesson has a very clear learning objective, and the lessons are ordered to make a clean storyline for students to follow and build up information accordingly. Each lesson contains two parts, which is manageable for students to digest new vocabulary and sentence structures. Tight control is maintained over new vocabulary, phrases and sentence structures, keeping the textbook well organized and focused and forming a supportive theme for students to recreate their own plots. Additionally, many online resources are available for teachers to use when preparing lesson plans.
