Some questions on traditional Chinese textbooks

Recommended Posts

cabra

Hello everyone

 

I started learning chinese 4 months ago, but my aproach so far has not been fruitfull, i've been using Hellochinese and taken some classes (not very good ones), i also use TOFUlearn for vocabulary, but i realized that what i really need is a textbook, so i can follow a structured path

 

Doing some research i found that NPCR and Integrated chinese are the most recomended series of textbooks, and decided that i would love to get the 4th edition of Integrated chinese

 

The problem i have is that i live in Argentina, and is difficult to buy things from abroad over here, and i think that the only books i could get at this moment are the NPCR 1 and the Integrated Chinese level 2 part 1 (3rd edition)

 

Well, now the questions:

 

1- Is there any other textbook that are available in traditional characters that you would recomed?

2- Could i use Integrated chinese Level 2 part 1 after complete NPCR1?

3- Any opinions on these http://www.huayuworld.org/upload/epaper/106/index.html ? if you think they good enough, maybe i save my money for something else

4- if by any chance there is a forum member from Argentina, please explain me how to, and if it's possible to buy books from amazon

 

I'm not a native english speaker, so forgive me if i wrote something wrong

 

Thanks in advance

I had a quick look and for a beginner, it looks OK. Will you be learning on your own or intend to sometimes have a teacher helping you?

1. IC has a traditional version, plus Level 2 textbooks come simp+trad in one. BTW 3rd edition differs from 4th mainly in graphics.

2. No, and maybe even Level 1 part 2 will be too "advanced"

@Lu Curious, did the ex-physician complain or were you just being proactive? You still have a bunch of names similar to abcdefg. Mystery :lol:

None that post regularly, or that have posted in the last 5 years.

 

This was a proactive change, and honestly speaking I was also confused by the name at first (wondered why abcdefg had removed his profile pic).
