How to Use My First Chinese Words

1. 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.)

There is a separate My First Chinese Workbook and My First Chinese Words Flashcards Set available, 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 (Traditional Chinese) (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

Excellent beginner Chinese books October 9, 2013
Reviewer: Becky from Oakland, CA United States  
My Chinese is very limited -- I can keep a conversation but my reading and writing skills have really faded since my childhood Chinese school days!  Now that I have a son, I want to introduce him to Chinese -- this is a great starter set.  The books are very colorful to capture his attention and the words are introduced in a way to build upon previous words learned.  I think the repetition is really helpful!  I haven't used the CD yet but it's a nice addition.

GREAT for my 4 year old March 13, 2013
Reviewer: Grace from Wisconsin  
This is a wonderful product for my 4 year old.  She gets the differences in the sentences.  I like that it has ping yin and the characters as reading is developed at the same time as hearing and speaking (we have her repeat it with us).  I also like that it's available in both simplified and traditional based on your preference.  Many books with ping yin are not available with the traditional ch

Good set of books September 27, 2012
Reviewer: Rose from Newport Coast  
My son and I have gone through 36 books in one sitting when it first arrived. Now he chooses a few at a time and we read it together. These books are a good starter or refresher (in our case) for those that would like to introduce their children to Mandarin.

Works well if your child can read Englis April 18, 2012
Reviewer: AlexMom from Milpitas CA  
I think this is most useful when your child can read English as they can read the pingying and pick it up themselves without much help.  My 5yo just kept reading one book after another.  However it gets hard fast as the sentences get longer and the characters harder to memorize.  I was amazed at how quickly he was able to start speaking Chinese.  The back of the front cover has all the English so
