Learning Chinese Textbooks & Curriculum

I am in the process of updating my comparison chart of Learning Chinese Textbooks & Curriculum. Better Chinese has now been added. The chart compares what textbook series by:
  • Levels
  • Teacher's Guide Available
  • Why the author wrote it
  • Where the author is from
  • CD's
  • Software Available
There is a bit more work to do on this chart. It would be nice to add age group.

My most popular textbooks currently are Chinese Made Easy which includes Chinese Made Easy for Kids and is available in both Simplified Characters and Traditional Characters. The Textbook comes with a CD, and a workbook is available. May be because I like the motivation of the author (she wrote the books because she could not find good material in the US to teach her daughter's Chinese), my favorite is Practical Chinese - >Effective way to learn Chinese. Kuaile Hanyu (Happy Chinese) is great for Middle School Students. Better Chinese uses multimedia, for example books with CD's as a way to teach Chinese and is based on what works in the classroom. It's designed for non-native speakers and very popular with school and can be used for home study.
