Nice book reviews received recently for our publications My Fun Chinese 苗乐汉语

“The My Fun Chinese Range is an excellent learning system. The characters, the pinyin and the usage of the vocabulary really helped my child learn Mandarin. It made our Mandarin practice time at home so much more fun and more efficient than other systems I have looked at. The resources are attractive and make the most of current pedagogical thinking. I highly recommend them.”

【苗乐汉语】的使用心得
李佩琳

 

一向觉得市面上的幼儿汉语教材缺乏系统,太过于着重个别主题故事,词汇和句型铺陈延展贫乏。

这几年本中心开始使用【苗乐汉语】系列,深深体会到作者从幼儿学习的角度思考的用心,无论是【我会读】【我会写】的六笔划,偏旁部首的联想,以及生字造句的结合,都非常严谨;【我会说】的句型,问答练习,和儿歌歌词的内容,是本中心老师们最欣赏的部分。感觉有一种在幼儿汉语出版的茫茫迷雾之中,见到一道灯塔之光。

 

I have always felt that most early childhood Mandarin learning materials available on the market lack system. Too much emphasis is placed on individual stories or topics, and too little has been done in staging the vocabulary and sentence structures.

 

Our center started incorporating “My Fun Chinese” Series in our curriculum and teaching a few years ago. Being a linguist and language teacher for 20 years, I truly appreciate the author’s effort in taking learners’ needs into consideration following every step of her design.

 

In “I Can Read” and “I Can Write”, the teaching of the six basic strokes, the association of the radicals, and the block building of the words to create meaningful sentences are all ingenious. As well, I believe all the users/teachers would love the quality of song lyrics, sentence patterns, and the Q&A practice in each unit of “I Can Speak”.

 

I know this may sound exaggerating but I really feel “My Fun Chinese” is the first Mandarin learning series for kindergarten to lower primary that make sense.
