I've had a lot of trouble finding Chinese learning books. Either they're too complicated, too simple, don't have pinyin, or have some new-fangled way of teaching.

Anyway, this book is the best I've found. Admittedly, the text is geared toward college students, so you'll learn a lot about things you may never want to talk about. But you'll get a good solid base to learn from. This is book 2 in a series.

I visited China for a while and never found anything this good. They only use pinyin for babies and Chinese books for Chinese people are much, much too difficult. When I return, I'll be taking these books along with me as a refresher.

I'm a Mandarin Chinese teacher. There are very few decent textbook available. This is the best I've found, and I have adopted the series for full implementation in my school's Mandarin program. It does require supplementary materials generated by the teacher.

Integrated Chinese is definitely the BEST textbook for learning Chinese. I love the way it is set up. The characters are pretty good for the college students, and the videos, oh, man, you will learn a lot, but you will laugh a lot too... This series is great.

This is the textbook series that my college uses and I think they are wonderful. They cover a lot of material and even though their "plot" is rather corny, I learned a lot from them.

“Integrated Chinese – Textbook Simplified Character – Level 1, Part 2, Third Edition,’ Yuehua Liu et al., Review by Dr. Ali Fant, WB5WAF

This review is written from the perspective of a second semester Chinese language student and native-American English speaker with a scientific background. I am fluent in several computer programming languages, but only one human language.

This is the textbook used by the University of Alaska, the Kansas State University, and many American high schools – including the US Department of Defense Dependent Schools located overseas.

The textbook is divided into ten chapters. In the Fairbanks (Alaska) high schools, only the first five chapters are covered in one semester. Universities vary their scope in covering from five to ten chapters during the course of one semester. The Level 1 Part 1 book and this Level 1 Part 2 book together prepare one for the Chinese government’s HSK Level 1 proficiency exam for non-native Chinese language speakers.

My biggest complaint against the textbook is the exclusive use of font size 28, handwritten, cursive style Chinese characters rather than the more easily read printed style Chinese characters. The latter are used as the standard Microsoft YaHei font in Microsoft Word and in most newspapers and books.

According to my university instructor, native Chinese learners eventually recognize their characters based upon overall “shape” regardless of font differences – similar to American students learning to read “bubble” and Gothic English fonts.

I would pay more for a textbook with a larger Chinese characters font size and a spiral coil bound edition. I paid $5.50 to have a local copy shop cut/bind the textbook for improved access to its many slick pages.

I have studied Chinese using this textbook series, Level 1, Part 1. This text is a continuation of the previous text. The curriculum is probably the best I have used, providing vocabulary, grammar, text, and writing. Accompanied by the workbook, listening CDs, and writing workbook, it provides a well-rounded learning experience. I have lived in China now for 9 months and I have found the phrases very useful. I am anxious to continue to improve my Chinese and I feel this textbook will best assist me in achieving that goal. One of the features I like best is that the Chinese is presented in both simplified and traditional characters, plus pinyin. The topics are practical and the learning opportunity is great.

I really like this series of textbooks! They have clear explanations of grammatical points, a bit of a story going on in the dialogues, and a fast paced, well structured teaching method. The only reason that they don't get five stars from me is that they have some material on a CD that does not come with the books: instead you have to buy the CD set separately for as much cost as another textbook.

Where I go to Uni they use these books for both levels of Chinese. While I do like learning the language I feel these books are pretty shoddy compared to other materials out there. Meh. 不好
