Cheng & Tsui's leading Chinese textbook series, now in its third edition, is better than ever! Integrated Chinese, already the leading introductory Chinese textbook at colleges and universities around the world, has been significantly updated. With content organized into 10 lessons, Level 1 features more flexible pacing, additional communicative activities, up-to-date vocabulary, and expanded cultural notes. An exciting storyline links all dialogues and readings, and new review sections have been added.
With its emphasis on practicing a broad range of written and verbal communication skills and building cultural understanding, Integrated Chinese is ideally suited for students who want a comprehensive grounding in the Chinese language. Coordinated practice develops students' listening, speaking, reading, and writing and builds proficiency in using the Chinese language in a variety of real-life situations. Throughout the series, Integrated Chinese incorporates the three modes of communication—interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational—and ACTFL's "Five Cs' : Communication, Culture, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities.
