Hi, it’s Carol here…
Season 2 of Teach Chinese mini-series is here!
It’s been another year of teaching my 3 children Chinese and there’s so much to share with you, if you’re interested to learn more.
After prolonged closure, schools just reopened for us in late March this year.
I feel like my life has been put on pause mode, switched to another channel, and just switched back after more than 2 years.
Despite all the obstacles, I managed to prepare #1 Vee for his high school entrance exams. One of the highlights is watching him revise hundreds of Chinese idioms.
To get some perspective, I mastered 300 Chinese idioms at the END of high school while he did 600+ BEFORE high school.
He did this mostly independently and without tuition!
That’s why I wrote “watching him revise”, instead of “revising with him”.
Over the past years, it has been my focus to guide my children to learn independently.
When the child learns independently, he’s on his way to being a lifelong learner and adapting to the ever-changing school and work environment.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune. – Jim Rohn
#2 Jae is now reading 3200 Chinese words and also doing very well.
Youngest El has learnt 1200 words and is reading short stories by himself.
He finally finds joy in reading Chinese books, a few years later than in reading English. Better late than never, right?
I studied Chinese until high school and then did not read a Chinese book for more than 10 years until Vee was born.
One of our customers is a grandmother who is learning Chinese and teaching her grandchildren to read Chinese.
Anyone can do what we are doing.
Over the next 2 weeks, I’m going to share a series of ideas for teaching your child to read Chinese. This includes promotional emails for newly-published Odonata materials.
If you’d like to learn more about teaching Chinese reading and the new Odonata materials, then you need to raise your hand by clicking the “YES, I’m interested!” link below.
YES, I’m interested in teaching Chinese reading and Odonata!…
If you’re not interested, it’s ok, you don’t need to do anything.
Thank you so much for your attention, and have a great day!
