Even the littlest learners will enjoy these lively tunes with videos of children singing in Chinese. This is a full immersion DVD which means there is no English at all. This is a wonderful method of language learning for young children. Repetition will help the songs stick in your child's memory. Play one song every day for a week and see if your child can repeat any of what he hears.

First you are shown the Chinese character for a word and you hear it pronounced twice. Encourage you children to repeat what they hear. Then you see the video of children singing the song using the words you have just heard. The songs are repetitious and you are seeing images related to the song. Some have action while others are more of a photo slide show.

Song topics include children, fish, hand movements, a train, a plane, a duck, flowers, rain and a house. I didn't always understand what the images and actions meant, but the words are clearly annunciated and the tunes are catchy. In fact, I recognized the tunes of Clementine, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Ten Little Indians.

You can play this DVD at home, on a computer, or in a car DVD player. Don't get too caught up on understanding the meaning of everything just yet. Have your kids repeat what they are hearing. Older kids can focus on the Chinese characters as well as the sounds, which is why I think this would work with 3rd and 4th grade kids. ~Sara
