After investigating many, many available Mandarin teaching materials out there today, I chose to use the Discovering Chinese series in my high school classroom. I'm glad I did. It is by far the most comprehensive set of materials out there. My students enjoy presentation of the lessons very much.

I am a middle school teacher and I use Discovering Chinese textbooks, workbooks and online learning system. My students enjoy the program because its easy-to-follow format and useful topics. I like using it because the program is very comprehensive (comes with worksheets, tests, stories, online, etc) and the material is constantly being reviewed in new lessons. I add my own grammar and additional vocabulary to each lesson and it has really worked for me.
