Review

The approach, the contents, and the layout are almost perfect; my students of first year Chinese cannot believe that they are making such great progress. --Yu Feng, Professor of Chinese, Brandeis University

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

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. --Lisa M. Carlucci, MS, MA, Robbinsville (NJ) High School/Washington Township Public Schools-Mercer and Franco Paoletti, PhD, East Windsor (NJ) Regional School District

I bought the whole 3-book set for a Chinese course in college. The book itself has a simple and clean design, making it easy to follow. However, this book is reliant on the Chinese instructor or you''re dead in the water. The earlier editions have a CD inside, but the company has since removed the CDs out and you have to go to their website to download the audio to know how to pronounce the words on the chapter. The book has no answer key for your workbook exercises. They don''t even provide the answers, the company site said it has to be requested from the school with the proper credentials to even release such information; it forces a dependency on the instructors and makes you unable to correct your own mistakes. If you''re studying Chinese on your own, this book isn''t best for you. It''s only doable if you have someone proficient in Chinese. I''ve studied other language books with a much more comprehensive package than this.

This book is very good and is a great choice for someone serious about learning Mandarin for self-instruction. If you have ever studied the Japanese language, these books are very similar to the excellent GENKI book series. The lessons revolve around a group of international students learning Mandarin.

You can download the audio for the lessons for this book and I highly recommend it. For me, I can only learn the proper Chinese tones using audio. Reading the Pinyin English text has never been useful to me to learn correct pronunciations. The audio is broken up into "bite sized" audio files so it''s easy to find and listen to the audio for a particular lesson.

The key to Mandarin is to learn the fundamentals. After that you will be able to venture out and learn Mandarin by other methods such as watching movies, using a tutor, etc. For me, I have been studying "Listen and Repeat" Mandarin lessons for a few years. But, I realized my progress is limited because I never learned the fundamentals. That''s why I purchased this book.

This book uses Chinese characters from the first lesson. It''s painful, but it''s necessary.

The bottom line is if you are looking for a solid book to learn the basics of Mandarin I think this is an excellent choice. I only gave it 4 stars because the audio doesn''t perfectly match the text. They need to do a revision for the audio part.

I''ve used so many different sources to learn Chinese. This is the best text book. It''s modern, the text and vocabulary are real world and realistic, the book is well made, explanations are reasonably clear, there is a great variety of activities, and the sub plots the characters go through (and trust me, there are sub plots) are absolutely wonderful. Very humanizing.

The content is largely the same as the 3rd edition (my class mates had the old one) but the production quality is on a whole other level. Huge upgrade, would get!

Online reviews talk about this book coming with an audio cd. Great! I would be glad to pay this cost of the book, expecting the CD with it. But when the book came there was no CD but there are references to a website where you can get a CD for $25. That was a shock after the initial price. The lessons appear to be excellent otherwise. Just not sure it is worth the added cost on top of an already high price.

The best learning book
Reviewed in the United States on April 4, 2019
I have all three books (Textbook, Workbook and Character Workbook) --- I never had in my life better learning books (for any subject). It is so well organized, presented, planned, etc. I will buy level 2 and 3 for sure! I wish all learning books are like these.
