Learn Chinese through stories and songs

I’m really happy to have found this site for my 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 program using various complementary materials such as books, DVDs, CD-ROMS, audio CDs and online via the internet. This makes learning chinese fun and interesting for kids.

The programs and materials are designed to teach the Chinese Language and Culture to “non-native Chinese 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.

My kid is having fun learning Chinese from this site because of its interactive stories and songs and I’m learning along with her too. Though designed for kids to have fun learning Chinese, the adult or parent can learn a thing or two from it too!

  1. Hi MG,

    Thanks for sharing it. I am also interested in looking for such sites to start my younger one interested in chinese. I am also learning it as a 2nd language as i intend to send my daughter to a chinese school later on. Did you have to buy to read the 36 books and etc? What else have you done to stimulate learning chinese for your daughter? Do share with me or is that just a paid post for you? MS

    Hi Meishi, Its up to you whether you want to purchase all of the multimedia and hardcopies or you can mix and match. You could always try out the 30 day free online trial before you decide. 🙂
