What's the best way to learn Chinese?
Another great educational tool is to use
songs to enhance children's interest in Chinese. Many children
love to sing or dance. The
songs and music learned in childhood will stay with them forever.
These days, children are so used to watching TVs
and they learn super fast while watching cartoons. Even another
language is no sweat for them. That's why we carry many children's
Mandarin or Cantonese or bilingual DVDs and VCDs. Chinese
videos are the best way to help children learn Chinese.

Adopted Chinese children wanting to learn English!
Chinese children being adopted by English speaking
families have the need to
English. There are books and CDs or
bilingual Chinese DVDs/VCDs which can be very useful. We
highly recommend these materials being used to smooth their transition
into the English speaking world.
As parents, we have made the
commitment that our child is being brought up as
bilingual, so she/he learns English and Mandarin/Cantonese. We feel this ability will help her/him make the most of the opportunities that life
