Integrated Chinese

With its emphasis on practicing a broad range of written and verbal communication skills and building cultural understanding, Integrated Chinese is ideal for learners who want a comprehensive grounding in the Chinese language. The series is a two-year course that includes textbooks, workbooks, character workbooks, audio CDs, multimedia resources, and teacher's resources. Materials are available in both simplified character and traditional character versions. The third edition has been significantly updated to meet the needs of today's students with a full-color design, more communicative activities, up-to-date vocabulary, expanded cultural notes, more review sections, and an exciting new storyline linking all the dialogues and readings.

Here on this site, you'll find alternate character appendices, supplementary material, corrected pages, a transition guide, and more. Share your own Integrated Chinese resources!

In this set of PPT, topics of grammar structures are listed at the beginning of each lesson as “Objectives”. Each topic is linked to a few PPT slides for classroom practice. You can choose the ones you want to use in any order you like, or use all of them.

For most of the practice slides, the answers are provided after students answer them with just another click, so the structures are reinforced.

Music Videos

One of the great nights of studying Chinese was when I went on to youtube.com to check out their selections of videos to immerse myself into the chinese language.  I came across music videos, and having come very close to completing Integrated Chinese Level One, Part One I could understand a couple of songs.  Here is my favorite one that gave me a real boost of confidence:

You can sing right along with it after listening to it one to two times.  There are subtitiles in traditional characters.  There are a lot of other songs you'll find too!  Have fun!!!
