Book Description
The Integrated Chinese Level 2 Workbook contains exercises to accompany the material introduced in the Level 2 Textbook and audio CDs. This acclaimed, best-selling series is successful because it "integrates" all four language skills--listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Integrated Chinese helps you understand how the Chinese language works grammatically, and how to use Chinese in real life—how to understand it on the street, speak it on the telephone, read it in the newspaper, or write it in a report. The materials within Integrated Chinese’s set of textbooks, workbooks, character workbooks, and audio CDs are divided into sections of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Two types of exercises are used: traditional exercises (fill-in-the-blank, sentence completion, translation) to help learners build a solid grammatical foundation, and communication-oriented exercises (speaking drills, discussion topics, etc.) to prepare them to function in a Chinese language environment. Frequently, authentic materials written for native Chinese speakers and realia (newspaper clippings, signs, tickets, etc.) are used. Notes on language use and Chinese culture are found throughout the textbooks. In Level 2, simplified and traditional characters are combined in one book.

Need to Format, May 31, 2002
Reviewer: A reader
The content is excellent. I like how they present chinese idioms. This workbook contains many disturbing technical errors. The simplified and traditional versions of the passages do not always contain the same characters (certain characters are deleted for no apparent reason). Some of the simplified characters were not simplified properly. There is not enough room to complete answers. The text is too small. It is hard for people learning chinese to learn a particular character when it so small.

A superior course to fluency in Chinese, May 9, 2000
Reviewer: A reader
The Integrated Chinese series is an excellent textbook. When combined with the audio lessons and practical application, it becomes a full college level course in language learning. The series combines a balanced amount of new vocabulary and grammar patterns. Plenty of examples and dialogues are used to illustrate the use of new vocabulary and grammar. At level 2, the book integrates the traditional and simplified Chinese characters as well.
