A real story for kids Chinese learning

A real story for kids' Chinese learning

Learning Chinese has always been a popular choice, however, it will soon become an inevitable choice. There are many reasons, including culture and travel. But the most practical reason is that China’s rapidly growing economy is one of the surefire reasons you should be learning Mandarin. It may even be able to give you job security. It will definitely open up more opportunities to work, live, communicate and understand a country that will continue to play an important role in the world’s future. Many parents have discovered this, and are now seeking to educate their children in Mandarin.

Here is a real story from US. Htay Family is an ordinary American family with two kids: one boy and one girl at 11 and 8 years old. After taking a few trial lessons with different schools online, they finally decided to purchase Chinesehour 1-year-subscription package for both of the kids. We asked the mother, Sarina Htay “Why does she think learning Chinese is important for her children?” and she said “with China entering the global market, Chinese has become a great language to know. Especially since nearly 20% of the world population already speaks the language.” She wants her children to have more opportunities in the future.

When we asked her what goals she had for her children, she responded, “I would like my children to be able to speak fluent Chinese.” Her children are currently taking monthly lessons (5 times per week) with Chinesehour and are on the fast track to achieveing Chinese fluency. The quickest way to pick up a new language is to practice as often as possible. Some avid language learners even move to a new country just so they can immerse themselves in the language. However, for those who do not have the means to travel there, or are unwilling to uproot their family. 1-on-1 online class is the best way to learn a language.

Whe we asked her “What makes you choose Chinesehour over other online schools”, she responsed “It allows us to select a time that works best for our schedule. And it is so convenient. My kids can even take lessons during travelling.” For busy parents that don’t have time to drive their children to a local Chinese school, or supervise an in-person tutoring session, learning Chinese through internet is a safe and convenient option. She also mentioned “My children took Chinese lessons at local school for more than 2 years, but only learning vocabulary words. They didn’t have chance to practice. Chinesehour helps my kids learn how to converse with those vocabulary words that they learnt.” At Chinesehour, we have thousands of lessons. All of our lessons present vocabulary in a situational context, so students will not only learn new words but also learn how to use them.

Chinesehour have emphasized the importantce of live interaction in the past, especially when the student is learning Chinese. Since Chinese is such a tonal language, speaking practice is exceptionally vital. Recorded videos and audio may be useful for developing listening skills, but are not effective when it comes to speech. The only way to improve Chinese pronunciation is with an experience, native Chinese teacher, who can help correct the student’s tone and accent. Children also have an advantage over adults when it comes to learning Chinese: Evidence shows that children who learn from a younger age are less likely to speak Chinese with an accent.

Young students learn quickly and efficiently with Chinesehour ‘s method. The intuitive system tracks their progress and assigns classes based on their skill level and age. Many tutors in Chinesehour have a certification for teaching Chinese to young learners. Chinesehour also provides several free Chinese learning tools so students can supplement their learning. (such as self-taught course after class). As we know, children learn quickly and forget quickly as well. In Chinesehour’s online classroom, you are able to record the entire lesson and replay any time after class as review. It is very useful and important for children to remember what they have learnt at class. Teachers send monthly report to parents so kids can make periodic progress with the help from teachers and parents.

As mentioned, her children are making rapid progress with their Chinesehour classes. Sarina Htay observes, “My children have been able to quickly learn to make simple conversation in Chinese in a very short period of time. After almost 8 months learning, they already mastered over 800 words and even can write hundreds of characters.”

Htay family decided to join Chinesehour family and continue their Chinese learning adventure! It is the time for you to think about your children?
