My First Chinese Words - 36 Books with CD - Simplified Chinese
Perfect first product young children Learning Chinese!

My first Chinese words is one of my best selling products and I highly recommend it to customers. When a customer calls and asks, what product should I buy for my kids, or grandkids, I recommend My First Chinese Words. Why? Because it's designed for the short attention span that 3 to 6 years olds have. The books are short, which is perfect for your child's attention span! Trust me, kids at this age, 3-6, don't have a long attention span (I have done a bit of substitute teaching, plus teaching my daughter 1 on 1). The set is quality is A+. The set is made for reading works both for non native speakers learning Chinese, as well as native speakers. Customers have ranged from stay at home Moms, to Chinese Tutors and Schools. There is also a huge amount of great supplementary material available including CD Roms, Workbooks, Teacher Guides, Exercise, etc. and you can build on this teaching method for materials through High Schools.

How to Use My First Chinese Words1. Play the accompanying CD.

Or, if your child likes using the computer (yes, even our 3-year olds are very capable with the computer now, right?) you may use the My First Chinese Words CD-ROM (sold separately) for flashing words and sentences.

2. Open the designated book being read and read along.

3. There is an exercise at the end of each book, so have fun practicing.
(It would be great if parents can practice with the child. A child gains more confidence saying things out loud if there is someone to practice conversation with, especially when words and sentences are newly learned.)

A separate My First Chinese Words Workbook is also available, as well as My First Chinese Words Flash Cards (both sold separately).

For more ideas on how to use this set, there is also the My First Chinese Words Teacher's/ Parent's Guide (also sold separately).

What People say about My First Chinese Words

"The 36 books are engaging with entertaining stories, excellent pictures and focused themes for each book. We've had the books for over a month now and my two children are still excited to read the books over and over again; this shows the educational quality of the books, as many books nowadays are read by children and thrown in the closet never to be seen again. I like the accompanying CD because it goes through each book twice, first at a slow pace to help you understand the pronunciation of each word, then at a more normal pace. The only drawback to the books is that it's not a "complete package" in the sense that you have to buy exercise and character practice books separately from the 36 book collection." - The stay-at-home-dad, NY

Great quality set. My 4 year old loves looking through the books and carrying the storage box that the set comes in. - mom, Chino Hill, Ca.

The books are wonderful. It re-enforces the reader to remember the chinese character... My daughter is 3.5 years old and she already remember the characters... - Jeanne, Orlando, FL

Great teaching tool for kid with autism! July 12, 2013
Reviewer: Virginia from Ft. Stewart GA  
This book collection and CD is a great way to introduce Mandarin to children and adults. The books are short and have easy sentences that you can remember and actually apply in your everyday conversations. My son (3 1/2 years old) and I read these books with the CD in the morning and without the CD in the afternoon a couple times a week. My son has autism and learning another language that shares

My First Chinese Words Set: Excellent April 10, 2013
Reviewer: Mr. Yu from Shandong China  
Our kids love these books. We are Americans living in China and these books are a favorite of both our children and their tutor! The pictures are engaging and clearly illustrate the useful sentences which fill these useful books. What's best is that there's a CD which is crucial for proper pronunciation! Super books super buy! Very useful for little kids and anyone wanting to learn oral Chinese.

Mini-books help build confidence October 22, 2012
Reviewer: Jenny from San Diego CA U  
My kids who are bilingual in english/chinese like to select the books themselves and listen to the CDs.  The repetitive nature of the books makes them feel like very competent readers!
