Cheng & Tsui’s best-loved Chinese textbook series is new, revised, and better than ever! Integrated Chinese is already the leading introductory Chinese textbook at colleges and universities around the world. The third edition of this time-tested series has been fully updated to meet the needs of today’s students with new communicative and interactive exercises, a full-color design, up-to-date vocabulary, enhanced cultural coverage, a diverse cast of characters, and a realistic storyline linking all the dialogues and readings. In the third edition, Level 2 has also been split into two parts to match the format of Level 1. This new arrangement covers the material from the second edition—with 10 lessons in each part—yet allows for additional exercises in each lesson and accommodates more flexibility in teaching schedules. The second edition will remain available to order.
