Chinese Flash Cards (Wink to Learn)

Great photographs and large format make these cards an attractive addition to a Chinese language program. By the same company as the above Sing to Learn Chinese DVDs, they are based on the methodology of "flashing" as an effective way for young children (from 6 months!) to memorize. The cards are numbered for easy organization, then you simply pick a group (i.e. animals), show the first photograph card and say the Chinese word, then quickly show the corresponding card with the Chinese character, and so on through the entire group. More information on the pedagogy and tips for successful flashing, such as speed and duration, are available on their website, www.winktolearn.com. The vocabulary word is written both in Chinese characters and phonetic spelling on the back of the photograph so the "flasher" can say the word as they show the photograph to the learner. I was still concerned that I was not pronouncing the words correctly since it is such a tonal language, which is why I prefer these cards as an addition to a program with an audio component and not just a stand-alone vocabulary instruction, since you do not want to be teaching incorrect pronunciation. Though the card sets don't seem to correspond exactly to the above DVD's in terms of levels, many of the words will be covered there, which would help with pronunciation. Each set has 40 two-sided cards, about 8"x5" with rounded corners and comes with a helpful finger cover to help you smoothly flash. Each set covers different vocabulary: 1 - body/animals/fruits/actions, 2 - numbers/nature/family/personal belongings, 3 - animals/even numbers/food/house, and 4 - colors/opposites/creatures/personal belongings. ~ Sara
