Integrated Chinese is already the leading introductory Chinese textbook at colleges and universities around the world. The third edition has been significantly updated to meet the needs of today's students with a full-color design, fewer lessons in Level 1 to allow for more flexible pacing, more communicative activities, up-to-date vocabulary, expanded cultural notes, an exciting new storyline linking all the dialogues and readings, and more review sections.The series provides coordinated practice in the four skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Throughout the series, Integrated Chinese builds on the three modes of communication - interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational - and ACTFL's "Five Cs"—Communication, Culture, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities—to build proficiency in using the Chinese language in a variety of real-life situations. 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.
