The Review:  What I liked: 

Discover China adopted the communicative and integrated approach to teaching Chinese as a foreign language. As the most updated textbooks of teaching Chinese adopting the communicative approach, the authors have successfully engaged learners to acquire the skills of listening and reading, speaking and writing in Chinese at a steady pace and in a balanced and interesting way.
