Are you a parent or teacher that wants your kids have fun learning Chinese?
I love sharing ideas and resources that have helped our family learn Chinese against the odds, and I hope that your family and school can benefit as well!
For the past several years, I’ve been “studying” Chinese while successfully teaching my kids. Most of the time, this is through old-fashioned play. I’ve also created free interactive resources and found many worth purchasing as well.
