History of Baby Learns Chinese
from Ms. Yama Chan, founder and designer
"After reading the book "How to Teach your Baby to Read" by Dr. Glenn Doman, I started using the flash card method to teach my twin boys how to recognize Chinese characters and English words. They were almost 1 year old at that time. I found that even though my boys could not speak yet, they were able to recognize the Chinese characters after seeing them a few times. It actually took them longer to learn English words. I think my boys found Chinese characters easier to remember because Chinese words are inherently images. To them, each Chinese character is, as long as the character relates to things that are familiar with in everyday life, they had no problems recognizing and reading the characters. By age 2, my boys were able to recognize about 100 Chinese characters. They are 6 now and they love reading Chinese books.
Chinese is a very difficult language to learn and I believe that it is important for children to build a good Chinese foundation and start learning Chinese as early as possible. The earlier children learn Chinese, the easier it is, especially in reading. As reading Chinese requires memorization, the capacity of a child to memorize is at its best when they are still babies.
I hope to bring this great learning tool to all kids that want to learn Chinese. With a group of dedicated parents and advice from educational professionals, we have formed a company - Chinese for Kids Limited, to develop the flash card method of learning Chinese into a DVD series with stimulating images and sound: "Baby Learns Chinese".
