Tips & advice for Parents:
At this stage. It is important for student to start to use full sentences they have learned to response. This practice should be done both in class and at home. Therefore, we strongly encourage parents to review the content stated in the workbook with their kids. Instead of asking “What is this in Mandarin?” Parents should try to say “Zhe shi shen me?”
Take home materials include workbooks and handouts (with Mandarin, English, and Pinyin) to strengthen children’s Mandarin vocabulary and sentence structures. The sound files taught in class will be sent through the registered email address. The sound files should be played outside the class as much as possible. It is encouraged to create a routine for the listening (e.g. breakfast time, bedtime, bath time, in the car, etc.) during the day.
