This acclaimed, best-selling series integrates all four language skills– listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Day-to-day living topics focus on practical competencies such as seeing the doctor, making an appointment, shopping, etc. Authentic documents (newspaper clippings, signs, tickets), as well as notes on grammar, language use, and Chinese culture provide students with real-world references. Integrated Chinese also includes four useful appendices: proper nouns and measure words, an English-Chinese vocabulary glossary, a Chinese character index, and example sentences in simplified form. Textbook Level 1 is designed to cover a year of study in a rigorous college program, but can be adapted for other programs working at a slower pace.
