Details: Product Description Chinese Link, 2e provides a practical, learner-centered and enjoyable language and cultural learning experience for beginning students of Chinese, as well as an efficient and comprehensive teaching resource for instructors.   This best-selling text takes care to introduce and explain grammar points clearly and systematically, yet not in a fashion that would be overwhelming to beginners. In keeping with the communicative focus of the text, grammar points are related to communicative task-oriented content. The textbook presents both traditional (complex) and simplified versions of Chinese characters, since learners will encounter both forms during their course of study or in travel abroad.  Photographs and drawings make the text vivid and eye-catching, and to provide visual cues to aid in communicative exercises and activities. And the Video Program to accompany the “Language in Use” sections enhances the in-text dialogues by presenting them in authentic settings.  Review Chinese Link is by far the best structured and sequenced textbook I have ever seen with a scope covering all necessary structural and communicative elements for elementary Chinese.   I am a strong supporter for this practice to combine pinyin with characters in first year textbook since it will give learners immediate hints about the pronunciation of characters which are totally foreign to English speaking Chinese learners.   The video for ‘Language in Use’ is great!  The video presentations impressed me greatly in that with its authentic settings and naturally occurring communicative activities, they will not only help learners outside class but also in class.   ―Wenze Hu Ph.D., Assistant Professor, US Naval Academy     Given students’ beginning level of proficiency in Chinese, the accompanied Pinyin would be a welcome service to the students who can then focus better on the sentence structures involved. This is a great textbook with an integrated approach for developing students’ overall linguistic and communicative competence.   The “Culture Link” sections are what make this book different from other traditional textbooks. I find the audio resources on this Companion Website wonderful and they should be taken advantage of by all who use the textbook.   I love the video presentation of this textbook. I think it tremendously enhances the dialogues and the texts because of quality of the pronunciations of the cast who acted out these texts.   ―Jean Wu Ph.D., Director Chinese Language Program, University of Oregon     The grammar activities are well-guided and involve more interaction [than Integrated Chinese]. ―Chao-mei Shen Ph.D., Senior Lecturer of Chinese, Rice University From the Back Cover For Students Student Text         Simplified Character Version, Level 1 / Part 1 Simplified Character Version, Level 1 / Part 2 Traditional Character Version, Level 1 / Part 1 Traditional Character Version, Level 1 / Part 2 Student Activities Manual         Simplified Character Version, Level 1 / Part 1 Simplified Character Version, Level 1 / Part 2 Traditional Character Version, Level 1 / Part 1 Traditional Character Version, Level 1 / Part 2 Character Book Simplified and Traditional Characters, Level 1 / Part 1 Simplified and Traditional Characters, Level 1 / Part 2 Audio CDs Video DVD Companion Website   MyChineseLab™ with Pearson eText Student Access Code Card Simplified Character Version, Level 1 Traditional Character Version, Level 1 Note: students may purchase access for either 6 or 24 months.   For Instructors Instructor’s Resource Manual Simplified Character Version, Level 1 Traditional Character Version, Level 1 Testing Program Simplified Character Version, Level 1 Traditional Character Version, Level 1 Student study tools are available for purchase online at       Developed in close collaboration with language instructors across the nation, Pearson’s MyLanguageLabs™ series is designed to address the unique challenges faced
