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

This textbook is an excellent resource that makes learning Chinese so much easier! The pace is just right: not too slow or too fast, and vocabulary and grammar points are delivered in very digestible chunks. The dialogues are level-appropriate, and both pinyin and English translations of the characters are provided separately, so you can refer to them if you need to but they do not distract you if you want to challenge yourself to read just the characters. Grammar points are explained very clearly. This book would easily suit both people studying on their own and people learning in a classroom environment. Everything is clear enough that no further explanation is needed, just some exposure to Chinese pronunciation - which is abundant on the web for free. The Simplified and Traditional Character Workbook is an excellent companion book for practicing writing the characters you learn in the textbook. There is also a Simplified Character Workbook that is not character writing practice but different kinds of exercises for pinyin and characters. The latter I think would be less useful for the independent learner, but it''s still a good resource. These books take all of the "intimidation" factor OUT of learning Chinese!

This is a great book for complete beginnings who want to learn Chinese (Mandarin). First, a little about me. I''m a first-year student of Chinese, and this is the book used by my class. I''ve learned a couple romance languages, but never any language as dissimilar to English as Chinese. This book has been my main tool for study at home.

I won''t say that this book makes learning Chinese easy. Whenever you see a book or a piece of software promising that you''ll "learn with ease" or "gain fluency in 8 weeks or less!" you should have alarms going off in your head. Language learning does not have to be painful or burdensome, but it takes time. It can be fun, but it is never easy. You have to put in the hours, you have to open your mouth, and you have to learn effective ways to memorize vocabulary. Daily conversations with a native speaker are the best answer to all of these. Unfortunately, most of us don''t have access to such a person.

While nothing can make you fluent in Chinese without effort (short of being born in Bejing), this book does make the experience more enjoyable, and less frustrating. Lessons start out slowly, with manageable topics. The first chapters contain almost no grammar rules. This allows students to focus on learning about the four tones and reading pinyin (Chinese spelled out with letters instead of characters), which are prerequisites for all further learning. The lessons then walk students through basic conversations. There are vocabulary lists in each chapter, but the book focuses on conversation usage, starting with dialogs, and then progressing to exercises that invite students to create original conversations. Cultural sections along the way provide a lot of genuinely useful information about how people in China live and interact.

Everything is written in Chinese characters (simplified), pinyin, and English. This makes it possible to focus as much or as little on writing as you like. I''m focusing on my conversational skills, but I''ve been able to pick up some of the more common characters just by paying attention as I read the dialogs. If you are all about the written language, you''ll find information of stroke order, radicals, and more. Naturally, there is also a glossary in the back, alphabetized by pinyin spelling.

Will you be able to speak Chinese after going through this book? Not without a lot of time and practice. The same is true of any book or language learning software. The book won''t do the work for you. But this book provides you with a lot of the tools you''ll need to get started, and I highly recommend it for beginners.

Mandatory textbook for introductory Mandarin in many college-level language programs. New fourth edition had been published, but snd is slowly being incorporated (Note: Fewer used books will be available now for the fourth edition, so expect higher prices). This third edition has a number of faults: Glossary doesn''t contain all the words presented in the chapters); Certain words will be introduced )like "evening") without introducing related words (morning, afternoon, night) until later chapters, one at a time, instead of grouping them in the text when first introduced. You''d think an instructor would do this, but most seem to stick to the text.

I love the Integrated Series! As some reviewers have pointed out, the textbook has a modern layout with many colorful graphics and photos, as well as a cast of engaging characters. The cast are Wang Peng, a Chinese freshman from Beijing; Li You, an American student from New York; Gao Wenzhong, an English student; Gao XiaoYin, his older sister who is a school librarian; Bai Ying Ai, a student from Seoul and Chang Laoshi who is from China and teaches Chinese in the United States. These wonderful characters star in all the various dialogues throughout the book.They teach us about hobbies,family, Chinese greetings,making appointments, transportation, shopping and school life, among other things. There are ten chapters in all.
Each chapter has two dialogues with vocabulary sections . These vocabulary windows have the traditional characters, pinyin and English translations printed clearly. I really appreciated this as some other books I have used have their characters too small to see the fine strokes clearly. The grammar sections explain everything very well , with explanatory sentences in traditional characters , pinyin and English translations. Again, the layout is neat and logical.
This book may not completely meet the needs of English learners, I understand.
I speak both Chinese and English; my recommendation for English learners is to supplement with other textbooks if possible. Even though this is Level 1, Part 1 , it assumes a lot. The first is probably that he/she who buys this book has a tutor or is being taught by someone knowledgeable in the language , whether in school or college.At the very least, one should probably have knowledge on how to properly pronounce the four tones. In my opinion, the book assumes fundamental knowledge of very basic Chinese; yes, it does start with simple Chinese words, but if you are looking for very basic words like ''gou'' (dog), ''mao'' (cat), ''cao'' (grass), ''qiu'' (ball) etc, you won''t find it in a predominant context in this book.That is not to say that this book contains no basic words at all; it does, but leaves out many other basic type words like the ones I mentioned.
For English speaking self-learners, I recommend simpler grammar and reading books to start before jumping to these excellent Integrated books. These can be found at [...] and other online retailers.

I''ve used this whole series of books in chinese class. It''s a very good textbook for students just starting chinese and it''s following books are great for continuing your studies.
Each chapter has a dialogue in chinese, with its pinyin and english translation; grammar lessons and a little explanation of Chinese culture pertaining to the chapter.
I have to admit that without a teacher explaining each chapter and it''s vocabulary I would be lost. I would only suggest this book if you either have a teacher or someone of the like to help you along.

The Chinese characters are large - easy to read for us old folks! Each chapter builds on the vocabulary from the previous chapters. There are several supplementary materials available as well, a workbook, a book on how to write the characters and a series of audio CDs.

I had ordered a used textbook that was listed as "like new", and was promised that there weren''t any markings inside the book, and that the exterior still looked new (hence the name). It was bent and looked more used than it should have when I pulled it out from the package. And there are some pages with writing (luckily with pencil).
