I review University of Washington professor Nyan-Ping Bi’s textbook, Integrated Chinese Level 1, and show you what all the hype is about.
Check out how others rated the Chinese textbook, Integrated Chinese, on Amazon!
The Great Firewall of China
Want to use the VPN I use for a stable, quick connection in China? I depend on it to upload more than six videos a week and live-stream on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. And here’s my second choice for a VPN. Plus, when you download from either link, they share some of the cost with me, so I can keep creating the videos you love.

Would you recommend this book for students studying on their own? I have heard from many people that its so advanced that it is almost impossible to use by yourself and also that both of the workbooks are basically needed in order to use the textbook?
I would only recommend Integrated Chinese, if you are studying with a tutor. Otherwise you should use another resource that provides more audio for you to practice with. In this case my favorite is chinesepod.com The lessons are fun and more than engaging enough with plenty of supplemental content for each lesson. Have you tried John Paxton’s free tone pairs on sinosplice.com?
I planning to buy this book integrated Chinese can you give me some tips as a beginner thanks for your time
Christopher. My biggest tip is download the audio for Integrated Chinese and start reading along with it as soon as possible. Also of course, inside of the online membership speakeverydaychinese.com I teach share tips each week with members during a live Q&A. Where are you at in the world? Because if you’re in China, then you can also join in on the weekly character hunts we do!
