Reviews
I have read Book 4 of the 4th edition cover to cover...[the preface] helped me as a language educator to identify what I should focus on when working with the intermediate and advanced level students...Everyone loves a good design with great visual components, especially the younger readers! Overall, everything is just more organized. Special shoutout to the "Cultural Literacy" section--I was so impressed to see how elements of [Chinese culture] are incorporated into the book to illuminate a multifaceted and modern China. And of course, the App version! I have only started to explore it, and cannot wait to learn more about it.

About the Series

Integrated Chinese is an acclaimed Mandarin Chinese textbook series that teaches beginning language learners the skills they need to communicate effectively in Chinese. First published in 1997, it has become the most widely adopted Chinese language textbook series in North America and beyond. Now in its 4th Edition, the time-tested series has been carefully revised to meet the needs of today’s learners.

Integrated Chinese is a four-volume series designed to cover two years of study at the college level. The series’ holistic pedagogical approach ensures that students with no prior knowledge of Chinese concurrently develop and strengthen their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Students who complete the series progress from novice-low to intermediate-high levels of proficiency, building a firm foundation for further study.

One of the calling cards of Integrated Chinese is its cohesive system of print and digital resources: each volume includes a Textbook, Workbook, Character Workbook, Teacher’s Resources, and free audio downloads. The 3rd Edition DVDs can be used with the 4th Edition.

The 4th Edition of Integrated Chinese is also available as a fully integrated, multimedia-rich digital course on the ChengTsui Web App™.
