The audio is choppy and sometimes hard to understand. Speakers sometimes speak fast on all speeds whether slow, regular, or fast. Also speakers have different accents and makes for inconsistent pronunciation.

...but quality is very poor. Volume of the speakers fluctuates, sound quality is very poor, and the occasional vocabulary word being read by a different speaker lead to my dissappointment. It is far too expensive considering these quality flaws. But, this CD is necessary if you are using the Integrated Chinese textbook to study on your own, as it will provide the proper pronounciation using the words and dialogues in the textbook (the textbook itself is excellent). There are home-made podcasts for Chinese language students that are far better quality...and free.

The cd's are good but the speakers tend to speak fast. It's hard when starting to keep up. They include everything they say they have in the books.

First, I caution everyone to look CAREFULLY at the description of this item. There is no indication that it will not be compatible with the third edition of the text and workbook of this series. The differences are substantial, another example of how textbook companies make minor though significant changes in materials to ensure that used materials will not be functional for users, thus ensuring their continued high returns on investment.

Second, the male voice on the tape is difficult to discern, especially in the pronunciation series of exercises.

if you don't need to buy this, don't. it'd be much nicer to have an interactive graphical and audio tool. it's hard to follow and not friendly for learning in this format. also the speakers tend to speak with a more neutralish tone.

The sound quality of these CDs is terrible. There's a lot of hiss, and the voices are muffled. I can't beleive they're selling these to the public! If you have to get these discs for class - there are many sources on the Internet where you can get the material on these discs for free.

If you're using this textbook series to learn on your own (or re-learn), stop reading this review and hit the 'Back' button on your browser. This workbook will not be worth your hard-earned money. It has no instruction or explanations in it; it is nothing more than a practice book for writing the characters from the text. It shows you the stroke order, gives you the pinyin pronunciation and English definition for the character, and then has a slew of blank boxes for you to practice writing the character. That's it--all 120+ pages. Oh, there is an index at the end.

I gave this two stars instead of one because if you're using the Simplified character version of the main textbook, this workbook will show you the Traditional version of those characters. It's useful to know how to read traditional characters because they are used in the rim countries and Hong Kong.

You'll only want to buy this if your teacher will make you turn in these sheets as homework or otherwise requires it. If she just wants you to use this to practice on your own, you can find stroke orders for characters for free online; the only thing this book will save you is the hassle of having to look it up. However, once you learn the basics of how characters are written, you won't need anyone to tell you the order anymore. Further, you will practice writing a character far more often than what fits in the 10-15 squares you're given here.

If you have an iPhone or iPad (the latter of which is an indispensable resource while learning an Asian language), the free dictionary app Pleco will do everything this book does for free. Further, you can use it to look up any character, while this book only has the 400 or so that appear in the accompanying textbook.

Format: Paperback
The characters are printed very clearly and neatly, however, there aren't enough practice boxes. The practice boxes with the dark dotted lines are also difficult to practice with (can't see what you write)
