I’m really happy to have found this site for myÂ child to learn chinese through stories and songs. The best part of it all is it is designed for those who are learning chinese as a second language.
The learning chinese curriculum is really well structured. In fact the website was founded by educators from Columbia University and the U.N. in 1997. They have developed a well structured programÂ using various complementary materials such as books, DVDs, CD-ROMS, audio CDs and online via the internet. This makes learning chinese fun and interesting forÂ kids.
The programs and materialsÂ are designed to teach the Chinese Language and Culture to “non-native ChineseÂ speakers” from 2 to 13 years old. However its useful for me too because although I’m Chinese I’m learning it as a second language together with my child. I guess that makes me a “non-native speaker”. Many International Schools and Schools in the U.S. are using this curriculum too.
MyÂ kid isÂ having fun learning Chinese from this site because of its interactive stories and songs and I’m learning along with her too.Â Though designed for kids to have fun learning Chinese, the adult or parent can learn a thing or two from it too!
